The Muntinlupa City Health Department said there are no PUIs (Persons Under Investigation) for the novel corona virus in the city.

Muntinlupa City Health Officer Dr. Teresa Tuliao said the five PUIs referred in local hospitals tested negative for COVID-19 and were already discharged.

“We now have zero cases of PUIs in Muntinlupa City after laboratory samples of all admitted PUIs yielded negative results for COVID-19. The local government of Muntinlupa is strongly coordinating with the Department of Health and Research Institute for Tropical Medicine regarding this health event,” Tuliao added.

Mayor Jaime Fresnedi recently ordered the creation of Muntinlupa 2019-nCoV Task Force through Executive Order 2 s. 2020 as a pro-active measure against the spread of the disease in the city. The local task force spearheads the implementation of DOH protocols and guidelines and extends full cooperation with the department and other national government agencies.

Fresnedi assured the public that the City Government is undertaking actions for the prevention, containment, and control of COVID-19 in Muntinlupa. Further, the local exec advised the public to practice proper hygiene, observe proper cough etiquette, and adopt healthy lifestyles to increase body resistance against infections.

The local government of Muntinlupa called for an emergency stakeholders meeting to discuss the latest updates on the Novel Coronavirus Acute Respiratory Disease to barangay emergency response units, barangay officials and health workers, mall owners, hoteliers, and other commercial establishment owners last February 4.

Muntinlupa City Health Office noted that health facilities in the city are equipped to respond in emergency situations involving patients with respiratory infections. Local hospitals and medical centers were advised to observe high standard of infection prevention and control in dealing with patients suspected to have contracted with the virus.

Ospital ng Muntinlupa has installed priority lanes for patients experiencing flu-like symptoms and is equipped to respond in emergency situations involving patients with respiratory infections. Muntinlupa City Health Office distributed 2,000 pcs of 100ml alcohol bottles to city residents and boosted its information drive in combatting the spread of 2019-nCov ARD through the LGU’s Public Information office. Muntinlupa LGU is inspecting emerging Chinese restaurants and coordinates with Chinese establishments as a precautionary measure.

Muntinlupa City residents are highly encouraged to immediately visit local health centers or Ospital ng Muntinlupa if they are experiencing symptoms of the virus. For more information, the public may coordinate with Ospital ng Muntinlupa at 8771-0457 or with DOH at 771-1001/711-1002.
