account_balanceMuntinlupa chat_bubble_outline0 Comments

Due to the alarming rise of confirmed cases and doubling time of COVID-19 transmission in the area, the local government of Muntinlupa will be imposing another extreme localized community quarantine in Filinvest Socialized Housing, the second lockdown in the residential complex.

Mayor Jaime Fresnedi signed Executive Order 30 s.2020 ordering a 14-day Extreme Localized Community Quarantine (ELCQ) in Filinvest Socialized Housing (FSH) Bldg. 2 in Brgy. Alabang starting July 28, 12:01 p.m. until August 11, 11:59 a.m. 

Muntinlupa City Health Officer (CHO) Dra. Tet Tuliao said that as of July 26, FSH Building 2 has a total of 14 active cases and three are admitted to the hospital. She said the doubling time is narrow for the residential at 8.83 days and has a high attack rate of 5.88/100.

Tuliao added that the community shows clustering of cases as housing units are close to one another. The community also has a high-risk population of children, pregnant women, PWDs, and senior citizens.

Recently, FSH Buildings 1 and 7 were placed in ELCQ last July 7 to July 22. Flinvest Socialized Housing is an 18-building residential complex. FSH Building 2 houses 52 families with 204 individuals.

Residents in FSH Bldg. 2 were advised to buy essential goods including food, medicine, and basic supplies. While the local government will provide additional relief food packs and other basic goods during the effectivity of the ELCQ. CHO will also conduct mass testing in the community and will intensify its detection, isolation, and treatment strategies.

Further, Planas Compound in Brgy. Tunasan will be placed under a 24-hour curfew starting July 28, 12:01 p.m. until August 11, 11:59 p.m.

The local government has coordinated with the barangay and community leaders of Planas Compound on Monday for the imposition of the round-the-clock curfew.

Residents from the community will not be allowed to go out of their residences except for emergency cases and essential travel. Those purchasing essential goods and working at industries allowed to operate under the General Community Quarantine are exempted from the curfew.

The stringent measure aims to limit movements and interactions in public places which are hotspots for the transmission of COVID-19. 

Mayor Jaime Fresnedi asks for the cooperation of residents from the affected communities and urged them to observe health protocols such as frequent hand-washing, wearing of face masks, and physical distancing.

Muntinlupa City has 1,106 confirmed cases with 476 recoveries, 558 active cases, 71 reported deaths, 555 suspect cases, and 642 probable cases as of July 26.
