Muntinlupa City has the highest recovery rate from COVID-19 in Metro Manila.

City Health Officer Dra. Tet Tuliao reports that Muntinlupa’s recovery rate was at 56.85 percent as of May 16, the highest among Metro Manila cities.

Tuliao said the improvement can be accounted to the city’s intensified targeted mass testing, including contract tracing, isolation strategies, and treatment of confirmed and suspect individuals to have contracted the virus.

Muntinlupa City has an ongoing “express mass testing” for city residents who are experiencing COVID-19 symptoms. PCR Testing administered to residents is for free.

As of May 16, the local health office has tested 2,005 residents and frontliners. Confirmed patients are immediately referred to quarantine facilities while close contacts and their families are isolated.

Recently, Muntinlupa City Health Office reported that COVID-19 transmission in the city is slowing down based on “doubling time” data of confirmed cases over the past days.

COVID-19 doubling time in Muntinlupa has further improved to eight (8) days as of May 18.

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

Mayor Jaime Fresnedi welcomes the improvement of COVID-19 situation in the city as it will boost the morale of frontliners. Fresnedi noted that while the city receives positive results in the fight against COVID-19, the public should not be complacent and relax with quarantine protocols.

He urged city residents to follow preventive measures such as physical distancing and stringent personal hygiene.

Quarantine measures such as curfew, quarantine pass system, and liquor ban are still in effect in Muntinlupa despite the implementation of modified enhanced community quarantine. 

Muntinlupa City has 197 confirmed cases with 113 recoveries, 56 active cases, 28 reported deaths, 16 suspect cases, and 187 probable cases as of May 17.
