The role of the West Java Provincial Health Office in the fight against Covid-19
In the face of the COVID-19 pandemic, which has not yet subsided, the West Java Province Health Bureau has made various efforts . The reason is that West Java itself is one of the places infected with the corona virus itself, which is large. Even in just one week, the number of patients increased.
Based on the West Java Covid Information and Coordination Center, the cases with the highest number occurred in the Bekasi area. But despite this, the highest recovery rate is also found in Bekasi. There are still many West Javan residents under covid case care. For those who are positive, isolation will be carried out.
You can carry out the process of isolation in the hospital or in your own home. In the case of this virus, it is said to end if the patient has recovered or even died . Meanwhile, in West Java itself , there are also many cases of people dying from covid.
The nature of the positive cases of covid itself can also be arbitrary. It depends on how to deal with it. Therefore , the government and the West Java Health Authority are also making various efforts to minimize the number of deaths of people suffering from Covid-19. Until now, the role of health professionals is needed.
West Java health workers have been vaccinated
To minimize the number of deaths or contracting this covid virus, the relevant government of the West Java Provincial Health Office has also done many things. Like, for example, this new one does vaccinations. Indeed, vaccines have appeared in Indonesia , but for recipients, not all.
The first recipients of the vaccine are healthcare professionals and affiliates. In West Java alone, about 80% of health care workers have been vaccinated against COVID-19 with the sinovac vaccine. Vaccines received from the government itself are still unable to reach all health workers in West Java.
This is because everyone will receive two doses. So, even if it is missing, the West Java government will also try to accept it immediately so that it can be used. Even the West Java Provincial Health Bureau will also vaccinate its residents. Although some things hinder the vaccination process, they can be overcome immediately .
The number of vaccines needed by the people of West Java themselves must wait again. Because the population living in this region is quite large in itself. In fact, this figure is the largest in Indonesia. Thus, the administration of vaccines is also carried out in stages. But despite this, everyone will get the vaccine with mother’s milk.
In addition, other problems resulting from the administration of this vaccine are due to the advantages and disadvantages of the injectable type. Many people refused to take the vaccine because there was no MUI and BPOM label. However, the issuance of legalization by both institutions ultimately made West Javan people want to be injected.
Puskesmas plays a role in the fight against Covid-19
Fighting this case of coronavirus, the West Java Provincial Health Bureau and its government have also begun to create a program, namely an integrated and master health center. At the beginning of the creation of the program to deal with the coronavirus itself, the government distributed many health care workers.
Previously, the health center relied on for covid was also in a state of disrepair. But now an update is being rolled out in which health care workers at a health center dedicated to caring for people suffering from covid are mixed. To finally take care of other diseases. This makes vaccination ineffective to carry out.
Meanwhile, in order to cope with the cases of people suffering from coronavirus themselves, it must be special and intense. So that previously the health workers at puskesmas could not work optimally. To create the latest program, namely an integrated health center for the specific handling of covid cases. The program was created by the West Java government.
The government hopes that with new health workers stationed at puskesmas, it can maximize its productivity. The role of the West Java Provincial Health Office to make this program successful in itself is also very important. Meanwhile, the West Java government itself requires more new medical personnel to be placed in puskemas.
This method in itself is one of the innovations carried out by the West Java government to overcome the coronavirus pandemic. By optimizing the role of puskesmas to deal with it. Thus, there are also more and more human resources, so that the program can be successfully launched.
Optimization of integrated Puskesmas and Champions
As for the integrated puskesmas and champions or puspa, this is a new method of the provincial government and the West Java Provincial Health Bureau to combat the COVID-19 pandemic. This is done by optimizing the role of the puskesmas themselves. In some areas of West Java it has been implemented.
Through this puspa program, the government works togetherbetween professions to engage in different sectors of work. This is used to improve the use of tracking, testing, and treatment. Not only that, but it is also used to maximize the 3 M that have been set by the government.
This is also enforced to maximize support for the coronavirus outbreak. The purpose of creating this puspa program is to makethe community obedient in the use of 3 M. Previously, health care workers who were asked to deal with covid on their own also worked on other things besides the virus outbreak.
Meanwhile, the main task of doctors to take care of covid themselves in accordance with the regulations of the West Java Provincial Health Office is precisely to overcome the coronavirus problem. They are asked to get acquainted with people who are really affected by the virus and are required to report and come to the appropriate health center.
The team from this puspa will also have the task of keeping track of the close inhabitants of the contact. Because before that there were not many cases that were successfully tracked. So it needs optimization to maximize the performance of a program previously executed by the West Java government. Puspa will be distributed throughout the area in West Java.
Mobile Posyandu for the red zone
In the midst of the coronavirus pandemic, the government and the West Java Provincial Health Bureau continue to attach importance to the health of their citizens. Of course, you still need to implement the protocols that have been established by the government. However, especially for areas that are located in the red zone, these basic health measures are carried out around.
Healthcare professionals, along with affiliates, will carry out mobile posyandu to minimize deaths from other things. This health program itself is carried out by medical personnel along with related devices, directly coming to people’s homes. The implementation itselfwill be carried out in accordance with the applicable protocol.
The work technique is adapted depending on the needs themselves. In general, the posyandu itself will be made by gathering in one place. However, celebrating this, residents remain only at home, later they will be visited directly by regional doctors of West Java. So that the implementation itself is really in line with what is needed.
The current COVID-19 pandemic, which is still crowded, has caused many areas to experience problems. But now there are protocols that minimize the spread. The number of deathsis also declining, and the number of recoveries is increasing withthe help of a community that complies with government regulations and the West Java Provincial Health Office.
