Epidemiologist Calls Health Protocol a Weapon Against Covid-19

TEMPO.CO, JakartaHealth protocol expected to be part of a lifestyle that cannot be abandoned during the COVID-19 pandemic. Epidemiologist from Andalas Padang University, Defriman Djafri, said the discipline of health protocols is still a mainstay in the fight against COVID-19.

“As a mainstay, the behavior of implementing health protocols for every activity carried out during this pandemic still exists,” said Defriman.

It speaks in time pandemic COVID-19 implementation of health protocols should be highlighted. In addition, supervision, evaluation, and monitoring of health protocols which include #wear a mask, #keep your distance and reduced mobility, and #cucitangan with soap and running water should also be tightened.

Currently, there are still many challenges in dealing with the COVID-19 pandemic, including a new variant that has recently emerged, Omicron, immunity that does not last long, and the distribution of vaccines has not been evenly distributed. Therefore, in addition to pursuing group immunity with COVID-19 vaccination, what is also important is the formation of public behavior to strictly enforce health protocols.

Defriman said restrictions on mobility and community activities should not be debated because its position is as important as the COVID-19 vaccine. All of this is an intervention in controlling and preventing the transmission of COVID-19.

COVID-19 transmitted from person to person. Therefore, restriction of mobility plays a role as one of the steps to minimize the risk of transmission.

“The more people move or meet, the more likely they are to be infected and the more people are infected, the more likely the virus to mutate and in the end, mortality rates will be at stake, which must be accounted for,” he said.
