(CNN)A provincial governor in the Philippines has set his sights on a set of people who he says are hurting the fight against the pandemic: karaoke singers.

In a Facebook post in the early hours of Tuesday morning, local time, the governor of Cavite province, Jonvic Remulla, urged the public to report noisy karaoke singers to authorities to help fight against coronavirus.
In the post, which began by quoting lyrics from "My Way" by the late American crooner Frank Sinatra and The Buggles' "Video Killed the Radio Star," Remulla told his constituents that getting a good night's sleep was one of the best ways to strengthen the immune system.
    "Curfew isn't just made to reduce nonsense night strolls. It is also meant to strengthen the body through a good and sound sleep," he said.But one of the most frequent complaints from constituents had been the "tireless abuse" from people singing karaoke, he said.

"If you don't want to sleep early, please let yourself sleep! Learn to respect the neighbors who have to wake up at 4 a.m. (like me)."Customers sing karaoke at a nightclub in Davao City, on the southern Philippine island of Mindanao on May 10, 2016. National pastimeKaraoke is a favored national pastime in the Philippines. Karaoke bars are dotted across the archipelago and it's common for people to have their own karaoke system at home, making the activity a staple fixture of social events. In recent years, several people have been murdered in the country after singing karaoke classic "My Way," in crimes dubbed the "My Way Killings" by local media, according to a 2010 New York Times report. The Philippines has reported more coronavirus cases than any other Southeast Asian country, with more than 272,000 confirmed infections, including at least 4,700 deaths, according to data compiled by Johns Hopkins University.

The province has reported at least 8,860 Covid-19 cases and 197 deaths, according to Remulla's post.Last month, Philippine President Rodrigo Duterte announced that lockdown restrictions would be relaxed in Metro Manila, Cavite and the provinces of Bulacan, Laguna and Rizal, according to CNN affiliate CNN Philippines.
      Under the new rules, more businesses will be allowed to reopen, restaurants will be able to offer dine-in services and religious gatherings will be permitted at 30% capacity in the five areas, as long as health protocols are strictly followed, according to the report. Despite that, the Philippines has reported thousands of new cases each day for much of September, government data shows.

      New York Governor Offers To Send National Guard To Pick Up Trash

      New York Governor Andrew Cuomo offered to send the national guard to help pick up the trash which has reportedly been piling up in New York City.

      “Garbage piling up, literally, people saying there is an odiferous environment because of the garbage piling up,” Cuomo said during a Tuesday press conference. “I don’t know what’s going on in New York City. If they can’t do it, I have offered to send in the National Guard to come help pick up the garbage.” (RELATED: Cuomo Sends SWAT Team To College Because Of COVID)

      NEW: @NYGovCuomo says he has offered @NYCMayor to bring in the National Guard to assist with trash pickup. City budget cuts have left trash pickup lacking in many neighborhoods.

      Cuomo’s office has reportedly received an increasing number of complaints about garbage after $25 million was cut from the Sanitation Department in July due to the coronavirus pandemic. The budget cuts resulted in a 60% reduction in trash pickups – public garbage cans went from being emptied every day to only being emptied 3 times per week, according to a Fox 5 News report.

      “The state can bring in trucks, personnel and clean up the city,” Cuomo said, according to Fox 5. “I think that would be important. This is a public health pandemic. Cleanliness matters.”

      “If the New York City Department of Sanitation and resources can’t do it for one reason or another, I can deploy the National Guard, we’ll come in,” the governor added, Fox 5 reported. “I understand there is a higher level because people are staying at home but in this environment, we don’t need people complaining about cleanliness of the city.”

      “The Sanitation Department doesn’t have the resources that it once did,” Former New York City Sanitation Commissioner Kathryn Garcia said last month, according to the report.

      “We are trying to leverage whatever we can to make sure we are keeping the city as clean as we can,” Garcia added.
