President Rodrigo Duterte was serious when he advised the public to use gasoline or diesel as disinfectant.

In a taped public address aired on state-run PTV-4 early Friday, Duterte insisted that gasoline can be an alternative when alcohol is not available.

“Sabi nila, ‘Itong si Duterte loko-loko’. G*go. Kung loko-loko ako, ikaw na sana ang na-Presidente, hindi ako. Totoo ‘yang sinabi ko, alcohol. ‘Pag walang alcohol available, hindi ka naman puwede lalo na kung mahirap. Magpunta ka lang diyan sa gasoline station, pagkatapos magpatulo, that’s disinfectant. Alcohol oh, gaas,” the President said.

“Ang akala naman nitong mga buang na nagsabi sa akin, ‘Itong si Duterte…’ Para sa inyo ang hindi nakakaintindi, sa totoo lang. Hindi ako nagbibiro. Totohanan iyon. Ang akala ninyo nagbibiro lang ako. Pero sa totoo hindi rin ako nagbibiro. You try to go inside my brain,” he added.

Duterte’s spokesperson Harry Roque had earlier dismissed Duterte’s suggestion to disinfect face masks with gasoline as a “joke.”
