Currently, the number of Government-19 cases in Indonesia continues to increase. Data from the Pokja Kovit-19 website showed that as of Wednesday (23/12/2020) the number of positive cases for Kovit-19 had reached 685,639 cases.
In an attempt to control Goiter contagious-19 One strategy adopted is a multi-person vaccination program, which prioritizes certain groups at an early stage.
“An epidemic can turn into a disease, (if given) the application of vaccines can be carefully planned so that the disease can be controlled,” said Tiki during an online discussion organized by the Badjajaran University Alumni Association (ANBAT). Indonesia is ready for vaccination, Last Saturday (19/12/2020).
However, Tiki admits that the implementation of the Government-19 vaccination program in Indonesia is not easy. There are many factors that cause a program to fail, making it more difficult to control the infection.
Another potential outbreak in the future
Tiki revealed that a lot of literature contains things that make it easier or harder to eradicate in an effort to overcome and control a disease.
The virus has the potential to reactivate, that is, a virus that cannot be detected in the body and then reactivated.
“In addition, it is related to mammal populations that may be susceptible to Govit-19 disease from humans, which then spreads to other animals and returns to humans,” said Tiki.
Tiki emphasized, this situation cannot be taken lightly and very seriously.

“In October 2019, I was invited by the Chinese government to talk about epidemic prevention. At that time I explained the possibility of an outbreak. corona virus (Corona Virus), “said Tiki.
Tiki further explained that the potential for this epidemic has been documented in various scientific literature.
A month later, there was a coronavirus infection, with the same virus, but now known as SARS-CoV-2 for Government-19 infection.
“Literature reminds me. As I remind you at this point, there will be another epidemic that is much more serious than Kovit-19. Maybe it won’t be long because now we have entered an epidemic, ”said Tiki.
With this potential energy, said Tiki, it means we have to be prepared.
Tiki decided infection control was easy and not that complicated.
“Therefore, it is best to prevent epidemics. While waiting for the vaccination program to run, we must continue to make efforts to control the outbreak, ”said Tiki.
Infection control can be done, among others, by continuously applying it Health protocol These include wearing masks, washing hands and keeping distance, as well as the use of 3T. Test, Tracking And Treatment.
If this is not done, the restrictions will also be ignored, further detracting from the success of the Government-19 vaccination program.
“For example, in 2018, Ebola failed to be controlled through a vaccination program because the state and society were negligent. Therefore, no country is free from the Government-19 outbreak so that all countries can fully control the epidemic, “explained Tiki.
