Cavite Gov. Jonvic Remulla

STRESSING THAT A PLEASANT SLEEP is one of the “secrets” to strengthen the immune system to effectively fight the novel coronavirus disease (Covid-19), Cavite Governor Jonvic Remulla on Tuesday sternly warned those who are fond of singing loudly in videoke even inside their homes until the wee hours of the morning.
The governor reminded his provincemates that the curfew is being enforced not only to prevent those loitering without any purpose but also to ensure a good night sleep that will strengthen the immune system.
“Isa sa pinakamahalagang paraan para palakasin ang naturalismo ng katawan ay ang sapat at tamang oras ng pagtulog. Ang curfew ay hindi lamang ginawa para bawasan ang mga walang saysay na pag-gala sa gabi. Ito rin ay nilaan para palakasin ang pangangatawan sa pamamagitan ng masarap at mahimbing na pagtulog,” Remulla said in his Facebook post with the lyrics of Frank Sinatra’s My Way as its introduction.
There have been wild speculations that singing My Way out of tune and during ungodly hours may lead to mayhem, if not “perpetual isolation” or, worse, death.
The governor also bared the “bad news” that the Cavite province now has 8,867 Covid-19 cases, of which: 90% are asymptomatic which he said could be moderately good news.
Remulla added that the good news: “We are doing more testing, tracing and isolating” the Covid-19 patients.
Responding to various complaints on public nuisance with the indiscriminate blaring of videokes, the governor warned that there is a “hotline” where complaints can be lodged.
“Tayo po ay may hotline na laban sa mga abusado at hindi marunong umintindi sa ibig sabihin ng noise pollution,” Remulla said.
He added: “Paki-text po sa +63 916 986 0679 ang inyong mga hinaing at daing para matigil at mabawasan na ang mga walang kwenta at maiingay na nag-kakantahan lalong-lalo na ang mga lasing at wala sa tono.”
