Security outposts established in key parts of Muntinlupa City

In the progressive City of Muntinlupa, security outposts were installed by the City Government in key parts of the city and with police officers stationed there to improve security and order, the Manila Bulletin reported.

To put things in perspective, posted below is the excerpt from the Manila Bulletin report. Some parts in boldface…

The Muntinlupa City government has started installing security outposts manned by the police 24/7 to step up efforts in security and order.

As of Sept. 27, the security outposts have been put up at the City Alternate Route Entry and Exit (C.A.R.E.S.) guard house in Pleasant Village in Barangay Bayanan, and Soldier’s Hills and Caltex gas station along National Road in Barangay Putatan. Additional outposts will be installed in the coming days.

The decision to place security outposts was made after messages spread in August on social media about the alleged kidnapping incidents in Muntinlupa.

On Messenger, people forwarded the message, “Attention Everyone!!! Mag ingat po ang lahat sa pag uwi, maging aware sa paligid as much as possible mag pasundo sa kanino pag uuwe may mga cases na sa Muntinlupa Area. Soldiers: 3 cases of kidnapping, Katarungan: 2 cases of kidnapping, Bayanan Area : 2 cases of kidnapping.” (Attention Everyone!!! Please be aware when you go home, be aware of your surroundings as much as possible ask someone to fetch you, there are already cases in the Muntinlupa Area. Soldiers: 3 cases of kidnapping, Katarungan: 2 cases of kidnapping, Bayanan Area : 2 cases of kidnapping).”

Muntinlupa Mayor Ruffy Biazon immediately asked the Muntinlupa police to investigate the alleged kidnapping incidents, which turned out to be false.

Let me end this piece by asking you readers: If you are a Muntinlupa City resident, what is your reaction to this development? Do you think the installation of new security outposts was necessary? Were there any cases of kidnapping that took place in your local community?

COVID-19 Crisis: Muntinlupa City Mayor Biazon issues orders to deal with rising COVID-19 cases

In the progressive City of Muntinlupa, local cases of COVID-19 have been rising similar to that of the entire Metro Manila. In response, the new city Mayor Ruffy Biazon ordered the departments of the City Government to tackle the COVID-19 problem, according to a Manila Bulletin report.

To put things in perspective, posted below is the excerpt from the Manila Bulletin report. Some parts in boldface…

Muntinlupa Mayor Ruffy Biazon has ordered city government department heads to address the rising number of Covid-19 cases in the city.

This, after the City Health Office (CHO) reported on July 3 that the number of active Covid-19 cases in Muntinlupa rose to 96 from 45 a week ago.

Muntinlupa’s weekly new Covid-19 cases totaled 164 from June 27 to July 3, an increase of 103 new cases or 168.8 percent from 61 cases tallied from June 20 to 26.

On July 3, the CHO recorded 41 new Covid-19 cases in Muntinlupa from 23 the previous day on July 2 to bring the total active cases to 96.

“Immediate concern natin is rising cases of Covid-19 (Our immediate concern is the rising cases of Covid-19),” said Biazon during the flag-raising ceremony at the Muntinlupa City hall quadrangle on July 4.

He said the rising number of Covid-19 cases “has become a concern” especially if the total breaches the 100 mark.

“I think we really definitely have to take action,” he said.

Biazon said he asked City Administrator Allan Cachuela to convene an emergency briefing about the Covid-19 situation in Muntinlupa.

“Let us take this seriously. Ayaw natin na mag-run away yung problema ng Covid sa Muntinlupa especially that we are still coping with yung recovery from the initial surge and yung epekto ng international situation natin. (We don’t want the problem of Covid in Muntinlupa to run away especially that we are still coping with the recovery from the initial surge and the effects of the international situation),” he said.

The mayor said health protocols should be implemented.

“Let us all be advocates of following health protocols. Let us make sure everyone is well informed of these protocols na dapat nating gawin (Let us make sure everyone is well informed of these protocols that we should do),” he said.

Muntinlupa CHO chief Dr. Juancho Bunyi told Manila Bulletin that the “new cases are close contacts who had their test done in private and tested positive.”

Let me end this piece by asking you readers: If you are a Muntinlupa City resident, what is your reaction to this development? Do you think that people in the city have gotten complacent with following health protocols? Do you think that the City Government should set up more new vaccination sites? Do you want to see the Department of Health (DOH) declare more people from the general population to become eligible for the 2nd booster shot? Do you think that the anti-vaccine fanatics and activists will come to Muntinlupa to spread fear and misinformation?

Let me end this piece by asking you readers: If you are a Muntinlupa City resident, what is your reaction to this recent development? Are you interested to attend the oath-taking ceremonies on-site or do you prefer to watch it online? Do you believe the City Government will keep doing good under the new Mayor Biazon?

You may answer in the comments below. If you prefer to answer privately, you may do so by sending me a direct message online.
