NATIONAL POST/MANILA — Philippines President Rodrigo Duterte on Friday told his people they should use gasoline as a disinfectant for protective face masks – and stressed that his advice was not a joke.

The outspoken leader last week made a similar remark about using petrol on masks if cleaning agents were unavailable, which his spokesman said was a joke and reminded the public that Duterte often says things in jest.

“What I said is true,” Duterte said during a televised address on Friday. “Just go to the gasoline station, and then have some drops, that’s disinfectant.”
