Philippines President Rodrigo Duterte on Thursday (July 30) told the poor to use gasoline as “disinfectant”, amid soaring number of new coronavirus infections in the country.
The some what unpredictable leader reiterated his statement from last week on the use of gasoline for those without access to alcohol. Following his previous comment, Duterte’s spokesman had claimed he was simply making a joke.
“If alcohol is not available, especially for the poor, just go to the gasoline station and pour drops of gasoline in your hands. That is disinfectant.” -Philippines President, Rodrigo Duterte
Duterte on Friday kept coronavirus restrictions in the capital and other provinces until mid-August to contain the spread of the virus, which has infected nearly 90,000 and killed almost 2,000 people in the Philippines.
