Muntinlupa asks residents to take extra caution as Covid cases rise

account_balanceMuntinlupa chat_bubble_outline0 Comments

The local government of Muntinlupa has recorded a slight increase in the daily active cases over the last week. The number of active cases in the city has increased from 5 to 20 last December 20-26. While, the average daily number for the last two weeks is at 2 per day as of December 26.

Muntinlupa City Health Office (CHO) chief Dr. Juancho Bunyi said travelers who subject themselves to COVID-19 testing for travel purposes and test positive account for most of the increase in local active cases.

Bunyi advised the strengthening of contact tracers and barangay health emergency response teams (BHERTs) and to strictly implement mandatory quarantine of COVID-19 positive individuals to isolation facilities.

Under City Ordinance 2020-106, all COVID-19 cases including asymptomatic, mild, probable, suspected cases, and close contacts are mandated to undergo quarantine at home or in the city’s isolation facilities if requirements for home quarantine are not met as certified by CHO.

The local health officer also urged the public to take extra caution and strictly observe minimum public health standards amid celebration of the holidays and New Year’s Eve.

In a recent report, OCTA Research Group has classified the National Capital Region as ‘low risk’ from a ‘very low risk’ due to an increase in the 7-day average to more than 100 for the first time since Dec. 3-9. OCTA fellow Dr. Guido David said the reproduction number (R0) in NCR is now at 0.85 as of December 23.

“Because of the increase in reproduction number, the NCR is now classified as low risk (from very low risk) using our metrics based on covidactnow.org,” David posted in Twitter.

Recently, the city’s active cases have dipped to a single digit from Dec. 16 to Dec. 24.  Meanwhile, Barangay Buli remains to log zero active cases for 24 consecutive days since Dec. 4.

To date, there are 20 active cases in the city with a total of 27,623 confirmed cases, 27,024 recoveries, 579 reported deaths, 1 suspect case, and 91 probable cases.

The local government also encourages the public to get vaccinated as protection from the adverse effects of COVID-19.

As of December 26, at least 440,714 individuals were vaccinated in the city, translating to 115% of the target. While at least 371,005 individuals were fully vaccinated, accounting to 97% of the target population.

City residents may register online through the city’s COVID-19 vaccination registration system via www.vaccine.muntinlupacity.gov.ph/muncovac.
