President Rodrigo Duterte was only joking when he advised people to use gasoline or diesel to disinfect face masks, Malacañang said.

In a virtual presser Thursday, Presidential Spokesperson Harry Roque said that Duterte’s claim that face masks could be reused after drenching them in gasoline was done in jest.

“Kayo naman, apat na taon na si Presidente parang di pa ninyo kilala si Presidente, joke only. Bakit naman tayo maghuhugas ng gasolina,” according to Roque.

“Pagdating doon sa mask, ang sabi kasi niya gusto niya mamigay ng libreng masks, kung hindi sa lahat ng Pilipino, sa maraming Pilipino, lalung-lalo na sa mga mahihirap.

“Ngayong sinasabi na single-use lang ang mask, ipararating natin kay Presidente yan. Pero yung cloth mask, puwede pong hugasan yan,” he added.
