Alex Gonzaga decided to apologize to her followers after posting an unverified claim about the novel coronavirus disease or COVID-19.
KAMI learned that the prominent celebrity stated in a controversial post that the said dreadful disease can be acquired even in grocery items so it is better to bulk-buy.
She also mentioned that people should disinfect all the purchased items using one cup of bleach and nine cups of water.
“So far ang trend sa hospitals now is sa grocery nakukuha ang COVID-19, so if kayang magbulk-buy, yun na yung gawin,” she wrote.
“Then paki disinfect mga nabili delata etc. 1:9 ratio chlorox and water. 1 cup chlorox 9 cups water. Paki share na lang,” she added.
After posting the said message, Alex immediately received heavy backlash from a lot of social media users for posting false information.

“It was forwarded kasi from a friend na may contact sa doctors. Pasensya na,” she added.
