COVID-19 cases in 0-19 age group rises in Muntinlupa City -CHO

QUEZON CITY, Aug. 22 (PIA) –Muntinlupa City Council for the Protection of Children (MCCPC) called for an emergency meeting to discuss course of action on how to address the alarming increase of COVID-19 cases among the youth.

This, after the Muntinlupa City Health Office recorded rising COVID-19 cases among the 0-19 age group and noted that possible transmission may have occurred from playing outside of their homes or visiting public parks and playgrounds. As of August 16, CHO recorded 62 confirmed cases on children from the city’s eight barangays.

According to Muntinlupa PIO chief Tez Valencia-Navarro, MCCPC is set to submit a resolution recommending the review of existing ordinances on curfew hours and strict wearing of face masks, including “incentivizing” best practices of communities with regard to the fight against COVID-19.

Furthermore, the local council also recommended for the mobilization of homeowners’ associations (HOAs) to augment monitoring in the communities and creation of series of social media content and other information campaigns to bolster information dissemination of City ordinances.

Navarro also said that Muntinlupa PNP has augmented police visibility in public parks and hotspots of COVID-19 transmission as determined by the council.

Additional roving and stationary officers were assigned to ensure that no children will be roaming outside their homes and other public spaces. (PIO Muntinlupa/PIA-NCR)
