(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.

Karaoke is a favored national pastime in the Philippines.

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.

Cavite, a northern province on the main Philippine island of Luzon, is home to 3. 6 million people.

The province has reported at least 8,860 Covid-19 cases and 197 deaths, according to Remulla's post.
