The role of the West Java Provincial Health Authority in the fight against Covid-19
Against the COVID-19 pandemic that so far has not subsided, the West Java Provincial Health Bureau has made various efforts. The reason for this is that West Java itself is one of the places infected with the corona virus itself which is large. Even just one week, the number of patients increased.
Based on the West Java Covid Information and Coordination Center, the most numerous cases occurred in the Bekasi region. But even so, the highest recovery rate is also found in Bekasi. There are still many residents in West Java in the management of the covid case. For those who are positive, isolation will be carried out.
You can do the isolation process in your hospital or at home. For cases 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 positive covid cases itself can also be arbitrary. It depends on how to handle it. Therefore, the west Java government and health board are also making various efforts to minimize the number of deaths of people with covid-19. So far, the role of health workers is necessary.
Health workers in West Java have been vaccinated
To minimize the number of deaths or contract this covid virus, the competent government of the West Java Province Health Board has also done a lot of things. As for example this new fact vaccinations. Indeed, in Indonesia, vaccines have come out, but for recipients, not all.
The primary recipients of the vaccine are health workers and related parties. In West Java alone, about 80% of health workers themselves have been vaccinated against COVID-19 with the sinovac vaccine. Vaccines received from the government itself still cannot reach all health workers in West Java.
This is because everyone will receive two doses. So that even if it is lacking, the West Java government will also try to get it accepted 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.
For the number of vaccines that the people of West Java need themselves, they have to wait again. Because the population living in this region itself is quite large. In fact, the number is largest in Indonesia. So the administration of vaccines is also carried out in stages. But despite this, all will receivethe vaccine against breast milk.
In addition, other problems arising from the administration of this vaccine are due to the advantages and disadvantages of the injected type. Many people refused the vaccine because there was no MUI and BPOM label. However, the issuance of the legalization of both institutions eventually prompted residents of West Java to want to be injected.
Puskesmas plays a role inthe fight against Covid-19
In the fight against this case of corona virus, the West Java Provincial Health Authority and its government have also begun to create a program, namely an integrated and champion health center. At the beginning of setting up a program to deal with thecoronavirus itself, the government distributed many health workers.
Previously, the health centre relied on to treat covid cases was also in poor condition. But now, an update is underway where the health workers of the health center dedicated to the care of people with covid are mixed. So that in the end take care of other diseases. This makes vaccination ineffective to perform.
Meanwhile, to manage the cases of people with the corona virus themselves, it must be special and intensive. So that previously, health workers in puskesmas could not work optimally. So that the last program was created, namely an integrated health center to specifically treat covid cases. The program was created by the Government of West Java.
The government hopes that with the new health workers stationed in the puskesmas, it can maximize its performance. The role of the West Java Provincial Health Bureau in making this program a success itself is also very important. Meanwhile, the West Java government itself is demanding that more new medical staff be placed in puskemas.
This method itself is one of the innovations made by the West Java government to overcome this corona virus pandemic. By optimizing the role of puskesmas to manage this. Thus, there are also more and more human resources for the program to be successfully executed.
Optimize built-in Puskesmas and champions
As for integrated puskesmas and champions or puspa, this is a new method by the provincial government and the West Java Provincial Health Bureau to combat the COVID-19 pandemic. This is achieved by optimizing the role of the puskesmas itself. In some parts of West Java, it has been implemented.
Through this puspa program, the government collaboratesbetween professions to get involved in various sectors of employment. This is used to improve the application of tracing, testing and treatment. Not only that, but it is also used to maximize the 3M that has been set by the government.
This is also applied in order to maximize the management of the corona virus outbreak. The purpose of creating this puspa program is for the community to be consistent with the application of 3 M. Previously, health workers who were asked to take care of covid themselves were also working on other things outside of the virus outbreak.
Meanwhile, the main task of doctors to take care of covid itself in accordance with the provisions of the West Java Provincial Health Authority is specifically to overcome the coronavirus problem. They are asked to inquire about the people who are really affected by the virus and who are required to report and go to the health centre concerned.
The team of this nymph herself will also be responsible for finding the residents in close contact. Because before, there weren’t many cases that were successfully followed. It therefore needs optimization in order to maximize the performance of the program previously carried out by the Government of West Java. Puspa will be distributed throughout the West Java region.
Mobile Posyandu for red zone
In the midst of this coronavirus pandemic, the government and the West Java Provincial Health Bureau also continue to attach importance to the health of their population. Of course, you still have to implement the protocols that have been established by the government. However, specifically for areas that are in the red zone, these basic health activities are carried out around.
Health workers as well as related parties will perform mobile posyandu to minimize cases of death from other things. This health program itself is carried out by medical staff with related devices by coming directly to people’s homes. The implementation itself will be carried out in accordance with the current protocol.
The working technique is adjusted according to the needs only. Generally, the posyandu itself will be done by gathering in one place. However, bypassing this, residents only stay at home, later they will be visited directly by doctors in the West Java region. So that the implementation itself is effectively in line with what is needed.
The current COVID-19 pandemic, which is still crowded, has caused problems in many areas. But now protocols are in place that minimize the spread. Deaths are also decreasing and cured cases are increasing withthe help of the community that complies with government regulations and the West Java Province Health Unit.
