West  Java Province  Health Office’s role in fighting Covid-19


Fighting the COVID-19 pandemic, which until now has not subsided, the West  Java Provincial Health Office has made various efforts . Because West Java itself  is  one of  the  places where the coronavirus itself is  infected with a large amount.   Even just a week before  that, the number of sick people has increased.


Based at the West Java COVID Information and Coordination Center,  most  cases occurred in the  Bekasi area.   But even so,  the highest level of recovery is also found in Bekasi. There are still many residents  of West Java in the treatment of covid cases .   For those who are positive, isolation will be carried out.


You can carry out the isolation process either in the 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 from covid.


The nature of the positive COVID cases itself may also change.  It depends on how you handle it.   Therefore, the government and health office  in West Java are also making various efforts to minimize the number of deaths among COVID-19 sufferers.   Until now, the role of health professionals is necessary.


 West Java health workers  already vaccinated


To minimize the death toll or be attacked by this covid virus,  the relevant health office in  West Java Provincial is also doing many  things.   As, for example, this new one is doing vaccinations.   In fact, the vaccine  has come out in Indonesia, but for the recipients,  that’s  still not all.


The first recipients of the vaccine are healthcare workers and related parties. In West Java alone, about 80% of healthcare workers have been vaccinated against COVID-19 with the Sinovac vaccine.   The vaccines received from the government itself  are still not able to reach all health workers in  West Java.


This is because each person will receive two doses.  So even if it is missing, the West Java government will also try to be 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.


Because the number of vaccines that the residents of West Java themselves need will 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.   So that the administration of vaccines is also carried out in stages.   But despite this, everyone gets the breast milk vaccine.


In addition, another problem resulting from the administration of this vaccine is due to   the  advantages and disadvantages of the injected type. Many of the population  refused the vaccine because there was no MUI and BPOM label.   However,   the  issuance of  legalization by the two institutions ultimately made residents  of  West Java want to be injected.


Puskesmas play a role in the fight against Covid-19


In the fight against this coronavirus case,  the West Java Provincial Health Office and  its government also began to create a  program, namely an integrated and  master health center   . At  the  beginning of  the  establishment of the  program to deal with   the coronavirus itself, the government distributed many health workers.


In the past, the health center that depended on to handle COVID cases was also determined.  But now an update  is being made  in which  health  workers at health centers  dedicated to taking care of  covid sufferers are mixed.   So, in the end, it takes care of other  diseases. This makes vaccination ineffective to implement.


In the meantime, it is actually a special and intensive matter to handle cases of corona virus sufferers yourself.  So former health professionals in puskesmas could not work optimally.   So the latest program was created, namely an integrated health center to specifically deal with COVID cases.  The program was created by the West Java government.


The government hopes that with the new health workers located in the health center, it can  maximize its performance.   West Java Provincial Health Office’s role  in  making this program a success in itself is also very important.   Meanwhile,  the West Java government itself  is demanding  a new number of medical personnel with multiple numbers to be placed in the schema.


This method itself is one of the innovations carried out by the West Java government to overcome this coronavirus pandemic. Through optimizing the role of puskesmas to deal with this.   Thus, there arealso  more  and more human resources so that the program can be run successfully.


Optimize integrated Puskesmas and Champion


As for the integrated and champion puskesmas or puspa, this is  a  new method from the provincial government and the  West Java Provincial health office to combat the  COVID-19 pandemic. This is done by optimizing the role of the puskesmamen itself. In some areas,  West Java has been implemented.


Through this puspa program , the governmentcollaborates between professions to be involved in different work sectors. This is used to improve the application of tracking, testing and treatment. Not only  that, but it is also used to maximize the 3 M set by the government.


This is also enforced to maximize the handling of the coronavirus outbreak. The purpose of making this puspa program is that the community is obedient in the application of 3 M.   In the past, healthcare 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 the doctor is to take care of covid itself, in accordance with the provisions of the  West Java Provincial Health Office , specifically to overcome the corona problem. They are asked to find out about people who are really exposed to the virus and need to report and come to the appropriate health center.


The team from the puspa itself is also tasked with tracking residents with close contact. Because in the past, there were not many cases that were successfully tracked. So, it needs optimization to maximize the performance of the program previously made by the West Java government.   Puspa will be distributed to all areas of West Java.


Mobile Posyandu to Red Zone


Amid this coronavirus pandemic, the government and  West Java Provincial health  office  also continue   to put the emphasis on the health of their people. Of course, you still need to implement the protocols set by the government. But specifically for areas that are in the red zone, this basic health activity is carried out around.


Healthcare workers, along with related parties, will perform mobile posyandu  to  minimize cases of death due to other things. This healthcare program itself is carried out by medical personnel along with related entities by directly coming to people’s homes. As forits own implementation, it will be implemented in accordance with the protocols in force.


The technique of work is adjusted only depending on the needs. In general, the posyandu itself will be done by gathering in one place. But by walking around this, residents stay only at home, later they are directly visited by regional doctors in West Java.  So the implementation itself is in line with what is needed.


The current COVID-19 pandemic, which is still busy, has caused many fields to experience problems. But now protocols are in place that minimize implementation. Cases of death are also declining, and recovered cases are increasing with  the help of  the community complyingwith government regulations and the  West Java Provincial Health Office.
