Oh, no! It seems like DJ Loonyo has not been devoting some of his down time getting updated about current events.

The internet famous dancer went viral after bursting out inaccurate and false claims about the coronavirus disease-2019 (COVID-19) mass testing.

“Kawawa ‘yung mag-i-intake at ‘yung mag-a-undergo niyan, because it’s not 100% proven,” he said in a segment titled #SwaggadNaUsapan Anu ba talaga nangyayari sa mundo natin???

“Nakakatakot eh. Pano kung uwi mo ngayon biglang reactant pala ‘yung tinake mo? So pa’no kung may ininom ka na baso and then your kids drink from the same glass and affected na lahat? We don’t know,” he added.
