Implementation of Disinfection in Prevention of COVID-19 Transmission and Its Potential Health Risk at Pasundan Health’s center in Bandung

Pratiwi Soni Redha, Laila Fitria


There have been efforts to prevent the transmission of COVID-19 disease since establishing the COVID-19 pandemic status in Indonesia; Bandung City is no exception. Disinfection is one way to break the chain of transmission of COVID-19 in the Pasundan Health Center area and the possible health risks. The type of research is descriptive observational by cross-sectional. We collect data using secondary data from implementation reports at the Public Health center and interviews and observations. The data and information collected include references, locations, methods of disinfection, the disinfectants used, and their effects on health. Data analysis was done descriptively. The results showed that disinfection at the Pasundan Health Center was carried out by directly spraying frequently touched surfaces/objects or all existing rooms. It can be concluded that the implementation of disinfection in health care facilities can pose health risks. So it is necessary to have supervision in the implementation of disinfection and socialization and education about potential health risks.
