The local government of Muntinlupa puts a community in Barangay Alabang under lockdown, the fourth localized community quarantine in the city, due to the alarming doubling time of COVID-19 transmission and confirmed cases in the area.

Mayor Jaime Fresnedi signed Executive Order 27 s.2020 ordering a 15-day Extreme Localized Community Quarantine in two residential buildings in Filinvest Socialized Housing complex, Bldg. 1 and Bldg. 7, in Brgy. Alabang starting July 7, 12:00 p.m. until July 22, 12:00 p.m. 

Muntinlupa City Health Officer Dra. Tet Tuliao said Buildings 1 and 7 have a total of 15 active cases of which 14 are active cases and two are admitted in the hospital. She said the doubling time is narrow for both buildings at at 3 days for Building 1 and 1.95 days for Building 7.

Doubling time refers to the number of days for local coronavirus cases to double in number. Tuliao noted that the standard rate of transmission should be at 7-30 days.

She 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.

Flinvest Socialized Housing is an 18-building residential complex. The two buildings to be placed under ELCQ house 80 families with 303 individuals.

Other residential buildings in the housing complex will be considered as containment zone and are subject to strict quarantine measures following IATF guidelines. CHO eyes using the newly turned-over quarantine facility in Brgy. Sucat as an isolation center.

Residents in the compound 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 a mass testing in the community and will intensify its detection, isolation, and treatment strategies. Barangay Alabang has conducted disinfection activities in the area.

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

Further, the local government raises concerns over rising COVID-19 cases among residents aged 19 years old and below. As of July 5, the 19 y/o and under age group recorded the highest distribution of COVID-19 positive patients among city residents.

City Health Office reminds the youth and their parents to exercise vigilance and strict compliance to IATF guidelines and health protocols.

Muntinlupa City has 505 confirmed cases with 306 recoveries, 160 active cases, 39 reported deaths, 234 suspect cases, and 377 probable cases as of July 6.
