The two electron pairs that are in a double bond stay together and repel other bonds or lone pairs together as a unit. The same goes for triple bonds and that is why they are considered as a single region of electron density in VSEPR.
Each bond, whether single or multiple, just acts together as a single unit of high electron concentration repelling other bonds or lone pairs. Because of this, in our VSEPR model we treat all the types of bonds the same in counting regions of electron concentration.
