Kariadi Hospital Medical Staff who Cured Covid Not Home – Kariadi Hospital Medical Staff who Cured Covid Not Going Home – There is still a lot of stigma from citizens towards medical personnel who treat Corona Virus patients, but it creates trauma. This happened at least to a number of health workers in the Central General Hospital (RSUP) Kariadi Semarang who chose not to return to the boarding house despite having been declared cured of Covid-19.
The many experiences of medical personnel in several places who were expelled from boarding houses and even their bodies were rejected by residents to become the dilemma that is now faced.
This problem is also experienced by health professionals from Dr. Kariadi Hospital Semarang, which since two weeks ago had been in isolation at the Kesambi Hijau Hotel. Even though they have been cured of Covid-19, the healthcare staff of Kariadi Hospital in Semarang did not dare to return to the boarding house.
This was conveyed by a doctor who also works as a Lecturer at Diponegoro University (Undip) Semarang Prof. Zainal Muttaqin while attending an online discussion program on the YouTube Scholar TV channel Youtube on Monday (4/27/2020) night.
“Many of us don’t dare to go home, especially those who live in boarding houses. Even though they have been declared negative (cured). They need a statement from the hospital stating they are negative. Before there was a decree, the RT, boarding house, were not allowed to return. So it’s as if the disease is a disgrace, “he said as reported by Solopos.com-Suara.com network on Wednesday. domino qiu qiu
Zainal claimed the problem of social stigma was still deeply troubling health workers who were struggling against the Covid-19 pandemic. He admitted, the problem occurred due to the lack of public understanding of the Covid-19 pandemic.
“A corpse that has been wrapped in plastic, which already can not infect it, is not accepted. Moreover, we, “said the doctor who also works as a lecturer at the Diponegoro University (Undip) Semarang.
Because of that, Zainal hopes the government will provide massive education to the public regarding the distribution of Covid-19. According to him, prevention of the spread of Covid-19 could actually be effective, if people followed the government’s recommendations about social distancing and physical distancing.
“This virus, if not tested, is not discovered. If you want to be in isolation for 14 days, you don’t really need to be tested. Isolation 14 days the virus has disappeared. “
