The Role of the West Java Provincial Health Office in Fighting Covid-19
Against the COVID-19 pandemic that has so far not abated, the West Java Provincial Health Office has made several efforts. The reason is that West Java itself is one of the places infected with the corona virus itself which is large. Even just a week, the number of sick people has increased.
Based on west Java’s covid information and coordination center, cases with the largest number occurred in the Bekasi area. But even so, the highest recovery rate is also found in Bekasi. There are still many west Java residents in the care of the covid case. For those who are positive, isolation will take place.
You can do the isolation process either in your hospital or in your own 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 of covid.
The nature of the positive cases of covid itself can also be arbitrary. It depends on how you handle it. Therefore, the government and the health office in West Java are also making several efforts to reduce the number of deaths of people suffering from COVID-19. So far, the role of health workers is needed.
West Java health workers vaccinated
To reduce the number of deaths or take this covid virus, the relevant government of the West Java Provincial health office has also done many things. Like for example this new one is doing vaccinations. Indeed, in Indonesia, vaccines have emerged , but for recipients, not all.
The first vaccine recipients are health workers and related parties. In West Java alone, around 80% of health workers themselves have been vaccinated against COVID-19 with the sinovac vaccine. The vaccines the government itself has received are still unable to reach all health workers in West Java.
This is because everyone will receive two doses. So that despite being missing, the West Java government will also try to get it accepted immediately so that it can be used. Even the West Java Provincial Health Office will also vaccinate its residents. Although some things hinder the vaccination process, they can be overcome immediately.
For the number of vaccines needed by west Java residents themselves, they have to wait again. Because the population living in this region itself is quite a lot. In fact, the number is the largest in Indonesia. In order to carry out the administration of vaccines also in stages. But despite this, they will all get the breast milk vaccine.
In addition, other problems resulting from the administration of this vaccine are due to the advantages and disadvantages of the injected type . However, the outpouring of legalization by both institutions ultimately made West Java residents want to be injected.
Puskesmas Plays a Role in Fighting Covid-19
In the fight against this corona virus case, the West Java Provincial Health Office and its government have also started creating a program, namely an integrated and champion health center. At the beginning of the establishment of a program to deal with the coronavirus itself, the government distributed many health workers.
Previously, the health center that was reliable to deal with covid cases was also in a state of disrepair. But an update is now being made where health workers at the health centre dedicated to caring for covid sufferers are mixed up. In order to finally take care of other diseases. This renders vaccination ineffective to carry out.
Meanwhile, to treat cases of those suffering from the corona virus themselves, it must be special and intensive. So that before the health workers in the puskesmas could not work optimally. In order to create the latest program, i.e. an integrated health center to deal specifically with covid cases. The program was created by the West Java government.
The government hopes that with the new health workers stationed in the puskesmas, it can maximise its performance. The role of the West Java Provincial Health Office in making this program a success itself is also very important. Meanwhile, the West Java government itself needs a greater number of new medical personnel to be placed in the puskemas.
This method itself is one of the innovations carried out by the West Java government to overcome this corona virus pandemic. By optimizing the role of the puskesmas to manage this. Therefore, there are also more and more human resources so that the program can be run successfully.
Optimize Puskesmas u Champions Integrated
Regarding integrated puskesmas and champions or dolls, this is a new method by the provincial government and the West Java Provincial Health Office in order to fight the COVID-19 pandemic. This is done by optimising the role of the puskesmas themselves. In some areas of West Java, it has been implemented.
Through this doll program, the government collaboratesbetween professions to be involved in various sectors of work. It is used to improve the application of tracing, testing and treatment. Not only that, but it is also used to maximize the 3 M that was established by the government.
It is also enforced in order to maximise the treatment of the corona virus outbreak. The goal of creating this doll program is so that the communityisobedient in applying 3 M. Previously, health workers who were asked to take care of the covid themselves were also working on things other than the spread of the virus.
Meanwhile, the main task of medical officials to take care of covid itself in accordance with the provisions of the West Java Provincial Health Office is specifically to overcome the corona problem. They are asked to find out about people who are really affected by the virus and are required to report and come to the relevant health centre.
The team from this doll itself will also be tasked with tracing residents in close contact. Because before, there weren’t many cases that were successfully tracked down. So it requires optimization in order to maximize the performance of the program previously made by the West Java government. A doll will be distributed throughout the area in West Java.
Mobile posyandu for red zone
In the midst of this coronavirus pandemic, the government and the West Java Provincial Health Office also continue to attach importance to the health of their people. Of course, you still have to implement the protocols that have been put in place by the government. However, specifically for areas located in the red zone, these basic health activities are carried out around them.
Health workers along with related parties will lead a mobile posyandu to minimize deaths due to other things. This health program itself is carried out by medical personnel along with related devices by coming directly to people’s homes. The implementationitself will be carried out in accordance with the current protocol.
The working technique is adjusted to needs only. Generally, the posyandu itself is made by gathering it in one place. However, by wandering around this, residents will only stay home, later visited directly by west Java regional medical officers. So that the implementation itself is indeed according to what is necessary.
The current COVID-19 pandemic, which is still overcrowded, has caused many areas to experience problems. But now there are protocols in place that make the range minimized. Death tolls are also decreasing and recovered cases are increasingwith the help of the community that complies with government regulationsand west Java’s provincial health office .
