Decontamination Station Key to Successful Handling of Covid-19

YOGYAKARTA, KOMPAS.TV - The decontamination station located at the DIY Province BPBD Complex, on Jalan Kenari, Yogyakarta City is one of the keys to the success of the Yogyakarta Special Region Province in reducing the spread of the corona virus.

Operating 24 hours a day since last March, this decontamination station functions to sterilize ambulance vehicles as well as health workers and volunteers handling Covid-19 who have just been on duty.

Those who are sterilized at the decontamination station are required to go through 3 stages of spraying disinfectant liquid, before ending with removing the Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) they are wearing and taking a shower.

This decontamination station was built by the DIY Province BPBD rapid reaction team, in collaboration with health agencies and a team of experts from the TNI and Polri who understand how virus decontamination works.

Through cross-agency collaboration, the right way of working and formula for the type of disinfectant liquid used in the decontamination process at this station was discovered.

In order to serve the decontamination process, TRC BPBD DIY as the coordinator of the decontamination station also involved hundreds of volunteers from various government agencies and mass organizations. They work shoulder to shoulder in shifts 24 hours a day.

To date, the total number of positive Covid-19 patients in DIY Province is 387 people. This number is relatively small compared to neighboring provinces on the island of Java.
