Have you been Vaccinated with The COVID-19 Booster?

Hello blogger friends from all over the world, how are you? I hope that you will continue to be given blessings, health, and the spirit of writing. Aamiin😇. This is the first article on my second blog (english blog) in 2022. Hopefully, this article about COVID-19 will be last, in the sense that the COVID-19 pandemic ends this year😊. 

In my country, Indonesia, the permitted COVID-19 booster vaccine include AstraZeneca, Moderna, Pfizer, Sinopharm, Sinovac, Zivivax. But the one with the most stock is AstraZeneca. Even though is much cheaper than other COVID-19 vaccines, because the inventor didn't patent AstraZeneca, puts the human side forward, but don't neglect quality.

Surprisingly, many looking for Pfizer because it is considered more effective, suitable for commorbidities, and has a few side effects. But, as far as I can see, someone got the COVID-19 booster Pfizer vaccine, then a few days had a fever. While my father who is 70 years old, has comorbidities, and gets the COVID-19 booster AstraZeneca vaccine, it did not serious side effects. Just sleepy and easily hungry. So, everything is returned to the immune and body condition of each individual. If you are worried that you have side effects and attack comorbidities, you should first consult with your doctor. Each COVID-19 vaccine, include booster, that have been recognized by the government, has its own advantages and disadvantages.

I got the COVID-19 booster vaccine (the third vaccine) on February 17, 2022. after 6 months (the latest rules are enough 3 months apart) of the second dose of COVID-19 vaccine on August 12, 2021. For the first and second COVID-19 vaccines using Sinovac, while boosters use AstraZeneca. I didn't get any serious side effects when vaccinated sinovac. However, I got side effects from AstraZeneca booster vaccine in the form of joint pain in my right legs for 2 days. I got my all my vaccine at a community health center near my house, with a limited quota and 2 times a week. When I recovered, I became more confident to go outside, of course, by continuing by carry out health protocols.

In Indonesia, Data for Every Citizen who has been Vaccinated and Other Information Related to Vaccines and COVID-19 is Integrated in One Application: Pedulilindungi.id

Now, the Indonesian government has a made a new rule that when travelling using public transportation such as trains and planes, it is not necessary to have an antigen/PCR test provided that you have been fully vaccinated, at least the second vaccine. This is of course good news, although there are still concern that people will not obey  health protocols, especially during long holidays. There is even a new rule for the Eid holiday after Ramadan, everyone who returns to their hometown must have a The COVID-19 booster vaccination. Of course, there are exceptions, for those who are prohibited from vaccines by including a doctor's letter. zIf it's just the second vaccine, it still has to be tested for Antigen or PCR.


There is a plan from the government about the 4th COVID-19 vaccine or the second booster vaccine. I think as long as it has been scientifically tested and proven have a new variant, of course it should be supported. Hopefully there won't be a new variant and the first booster vaccine will suffice.

Lastly, I also want to know your condition after being vaccinated. Have you been vaccinated with the COVID-19 booster? what type of vaccine? Are there any side effects? or something else about COVID-19 vaccines? Please share in the comments column. Thanks. Stay safe and healthy.

Health Business during The Corona Pandemic: between Opportunity and Humanity

Happy new year 2021 friends🥳. Hopefully the corona pandemic will end soon, the future will be better and more blessed. Aamiin. This blog article is the opening blog article early 2021. Hope it is useful.


The corona pandemic condition becomes a kind of business opportunity in the health sector. Includes: 

1. Free medicine

2. Herbal medicine

3. Medical devices (such as masks, thermometers, disinfectants, hand sanitizer, personal protective equipments, etc)  

4. Diagnostic test

5. Health supplements to increase body immunity

6. Lodging business for corona victims

7. Medical waste processing

8. Home fitness equipment to avoid exercising in the crowd

9. The corona vaccine

This business will increase in the past two years considering that many people are increasingly concerned about health, want to increase their immunity, and those who are infected with the corona want to get well soon.

I have read that there is a competition for the procurement of the corona vaccine. It turns out that nearly 200 companies are trying to develop a vaccine. They are competing to be the first with high benefits and safe to use. Originally, Sinovac vaccine seemed to be superior and has met the results of the phase three clinical trial. Not long after, RNA Pfizer, and Moderna vaccines also completed phase three clinical trials. All three are considered effective and competitive price. Even from the vaccine development efforts, the shares of the three companies increased.

The corona vaccine has become an urgent public need, it should put aside business interests and also politics. However, business must still exist for the continuation of the corona vaccine effort going forward, but it is not priority. Humanity must be the top priority. World Health Organization (WHO) has planned that the corona vaccine can be enjoyed by all countries, not just rich countries. They are pooling funds and expertise to provide vaccines to about 20 percent of the poor in financed countries. The subsidized corona vaccine price is only US$ 2, much cheaper than the price of the corona vaccine in the market around US$ 5-10. 


The  government cannot walk alone to carry out this vaccination program. The realistic possibility is to invite the private sector to participate. So, in the future some will be subsidized by the government and some will pay the private sector through this private sector. Of course everything is under government control.

Governments in various countries have agreed on the priorities for receiving the corona vaccine must be 18-59 years old, with professional priorities:

1. Vanguard group: medical officers, paramedic, nurse, police, army, Legal Officers

2. Religious/community leaders and regional, neighborhood, hamlet, and sub-district apparatus

3. Educators from all levels

4.  Government apparatus in general

5. Other communities aged 18 to 59 years old and eligible 

*especially children and the ederly should wait for clinical trials

(Source: Kompas Newspaper, and kompas.com).

The conclusion 

1. During the corona pandemic, the health business is increasingly prospective, but must pay attention to business ethics considering that is a business in the midst of a disaster and many people have lost their jobs

2. This business is closely related to human values. So, don't take too much profit, especially hoarding items that could violate the law

3. There needs to be cooperation between the government and the private sector regarding business boundaries

4. According to WHO, vaccines cannot serve political interests. The state makes a big mistake in making vaccines a political instrument, it is tantamount to wanting the country to be destroyed according to an international community. Unlike weapons, they can be used as political instruments. But, vaccines can be used as the prestige and achievement of a country.

How to Overcome Pollution from Medical Mask Waste

Medical mask become a necessity during current conditions due to corona outbreaks. New problems arise when the disposable medical mask that have been used are thrown away discarded cause pollution. I'm afraid that the disposable medical mask is misused such as if it was reused after washing or recycled for resale at a cheaper price😱. This is also applies to other disposable medical items such as personal protective medical clothing (likes astronaut), medical gloves, injections, expired chemical drugs, unsterile tissue, and other personal pretective medical devices.

Some steps to overcome pollution from medical mask waste:
1. The government should provide special bins for medical mask and the like in the public areas to increase public awareness about medical waste that is different domestic waste

2. Cut out disposable masks to avoid being misused

3. Medical waste must be separated in covered plastic (leakproof) and then put in a closed container to be sent to the waste disposal company. Don't mix it with domestic waste

4. In the garbage container there should be written infectious waste

5, Destruction by burning using incinerators operated by health service facilities or licensed medical waste processing services

6. Incinerator has a combustion chamber with a minimun temperature of 800 degrees celsius

7. Be careful if there is radioactive medical waste, it is better to separate, because the handling is different

8. For medical waste processing workers must be equipped with personal protective equipment

9. Not all medical waste is disposed of. There can be used as bricks for energy sources in the production

The Disposable Medical Mask. Before being Discarded, It Must be Cut and Torn So It is Not Misused

The government must act as a regulator and coordinator to overcome with medical waste. The government must coordinate medical waste processing workers, domestic waste processing workers, waste disposal company, incinerator company, and local residents is need so that medical waste is not mix with domestic waste. If it gets mixes up, it is feared that transmission of the virus will occur. Not only that, the government must cooperate with researchers to utilize medical waste into something useful, like alternative energy resources. Finally, we hope that the corona virus will disappear😇.

Prevention of Corona Virus Transmission and Predictable Medicine Works

At the beginning of this March 2020, we were shocked by the news that the death toll from corona virus (called Covid-19) has reached 3041 people worldwide😱. Around 129 death due to corona virus happening outside of China. Finally, corona virus has spread to Indonesia. There are 6 victims who have been isolated and suspected victims of the corona virus died reached 3 people (source: https://tirto.id). Corona virus cases all over the world reach 88443. Around 80026 victims from China. Of all, only 44462 victims recovered  (source: CNN & detik.com).

Of course, we are concerned to see this. Efforts to prevent transmission can be done, such as:
1. Maintaining a distance of 0.5 to 2 meters of people who coughing or sneezing
Source: IG @weimankow

2. Use a mask when to areas that are considered unsterile and if the patient (coughing or sneezing) does not have a mask, immediately give a mask (only used once)

3. In public places, we should avoid crowds of strangers, because maybe one of them transmitting disease. Do social/physical distancing)

4. Wash your hands regularly with soap for 20 seconds

5. Wash with soap the object touched by the patient. Remember, the virus can spread from the sufferer to the objects that are touched and survived for 1 day

6. Don't share food uttensils, food, cups, and towels

7. Don't go abroad for now, especially to areas that are prone to corona virus

8. For additional nutrition, you can consume herbs like ginger, pepper, garlic, temulawak, turmeric, cinnamon, lemongrass9. Greet with a smile and greetings without contact

10. Always keep health and body endurance must be strong with complete nutritional intake, drink plenty of water, regular exercise, sunbathing, positive thinking (don't stress), and adequate rest

11. Always worship, good deeds, and pray😇
Remember, the virus will easily enter the weak body and soul.

While for medicine to cure diseases due to corona virus does not yet exist, is still researched until now, and is predicted to be effective next year. Existing medicine only weaken corona virus, not kill it. 

The medicine that is predicted to kill corona virus: 
1.  Faviriapir
- A kind of generic drug
- Faviriapir is an influenza medicine that has been used to cure ebola disease

2. A combination of HIV and influenza medicine
- The name of medicine is lopinavir and ritonavir
- Each has a trade mark Kaletra and AbbVie

3. Remdesivir serum
- Has been tried to overcome SARS and ebola diseases
- This serum haven't recognition yet

4. Bacht vaccine
- The first bacht vaccine was named mRNA-1273
- mRNA-1273 is made to direct cells in the body to produce proteins, to prevent or fight disease

Hopefully, corona virus killer medicine will be patented soon😇.

Groundwater Pollution: Characteristics, Causes, and Prevention

Happy new year friends, hopefully getting better and blessing going forwards. Aamiin🎊🎉😇. Ok friends, the topic of my blog in early 2020 was groundwater pollution. Groundwater pollution shows that water conditions are not good and if used by human it can endanger health. That's why the topic of this blog is still related to health. In addition, groundwater pollution has become a global issue that must be taken seriously because it has been proven to occur in many countries and results in lowering the quality of human life, causing illness, and even death.

There are many characteristics that indicate groundwater pollution:
1. Not clear, smelly, taste, and color
2. Does not have a cool temperature
3. Give rise to deposits
4. Contain high amounts of dissolved particles and heavy metals such as mercury, lead, nickel, and zinc. Heavy metal ions will partially accumulate in various organs, especially the digestive track, liver, and kidneys, so that they can damage the organs
5. Contain toxic substances like hydrocarbon compounds and detergents
6. Turbid water due to rust from iron pipes, mud, clay, and microorganism
7. The water feels rather salty due to the high salt content. This often happen in the area around the river mouth
8. There are pollutans in ground water. If it is feels bitter, the trigger can be iron, aluminium, manganese, sulfate, or lime in large quantities
9. Taste of soapy water. It is doe to alkali contamination. The source can be in the form of washing agents, such as detergents
10. Polluted by pathogenic bacteria (bacteria that cause disease) such as Eschericia colli (causes diarrhea and vomiting), Clostridium perfringens (cause of poison), and Salmonella (causes of typhus)

Cause polluted groundwater:
1. Infiltration of pollutant solution from the garbage bin through the process of washing by rain water
2. Leakage from household sewers, usually caused by septic tank designs that are not up to standard
3. Deposit of river waste that is not immediately addresed
4. Household chemical waste such as detergents that pool in the ground

Detergent Waste😱. Source: beritatagar.id
5. Live around the industrial area allows many factories to dispose of their waste carelessly and this can reduce the quality of groundwater
6. Excessive use of ground water in short time without the process of returning water to the ground

Groundwater Contamination. Source: Environment Canada -> Researchgate.net
Save groundwater quality with the following preventive measures:
1. Make biopori holes and infiltration Wells at home. Biopori holes cam help us expedite rainwater to seep into the ground

2. Reduce the use of washing detergent. Start washing clothes when they are covered so that less liquid waste is produced
3. Reduce the use of insecticides at home, remember these chemicalsmay stick to the ground and ilfiltrate it through train water. It's better if we use natural ways to repel insects, like eucalyptus oil, orange peel, and garlic
4. Start managing household waste. Separate waste can be decomposed (garbage left over from vegetables/fruits) and which cannot be decomposed (iron, plastic, styrofoam, and glass)
5. Planting trees in the home environment. The precense and green open space can help the absorption of water back into the ground. The existence of small garden is also important for filtering dirty air, reduce noise, preventing flooding and lack of water

Small Garden at My Home

6. Began to skimp on water use, especially during the dry season
7. Periodic maintenance of the pipes in the home, especially the septic tank sewer
(Source: Tabloid Rumah).

Thus the article I made. Health is not only related to human individuals, but also to environmental cleanliness, one of which is to maintain the quality of ground water. If the quality of ground water is good, it will affect the health of our bodies. For example: using groundwater  directly for bathing and undirectly/boiled water for drinking make instan noodles, and cook vegetables.

Carpal Tunnel Syndrome on The Left Wrist, Based on My Experience

CTS (Carpal Tunnel Syndrome) disease is wrist pain because the nerves are depressed and cause symptoms of pain, numbness and parasthesia. Parasthesia -> tingling or burning (source: wikipedia).

There are several roots causes of CTS:
1. Heredity Factor
2. Woman are more likely to suffer from CTS than men because of:
- Woman has smaller carpal passage than men
- Pregnant woman at are risk of getting CTS due to hormonal changes
3. Certain diseases: diabetes, gout, hypothyroidism, obesity, and kidney failure
4. Wrist injuries, such as: dislocations, join dislocations, and bone fractures
5. Repeated severe activity involving the wrist, such as:
- Lift the barbell with a heavy load
- Playing musical instrument
- Knitting
- Using chainsaw
- Selfie and wefie (wrist often bend inward)
6. Certain profession, such as: tailors, cashiers, barber, packaging workers, endless typing work, and athlete (for example: goalkeeper)
7. Wrong eating/drinking patterns, such as:
- Excess vitamin B6 causes irritation to the nerves
- Efficiency vitamin B6 causes tingling
- Eat too much food that is too salty
- Foods and drinks that are high in purine cause gout which can eventually aggravate CTS
- Junk food and fried foods
- Drinks that are too sweet and carbonated
- Other unhealthy food and drink
(Source: https://www.aladokter.com & DA Kartikasari at unimus.ac.id)

I have had CTS on my left wrist a few years ago. Pain, weakness, and swelling on my left wrist occur for a month (relapse)😱. Strangely enough, my right wrist was fine after being overburdened by repeated heavy activity.
My Left Wrist Look Swollen and I Feel Difficult, Weak, Vibrate (Tremor Symptom), and Painful to Just Open The Door Due to CTS Disease. Source: My Photo
According to a doctor, the main cause was severe recurrent activity. I finally realized the root of the problem, which was heavy exercise involving the wrist. For example used barbells and handgrips.

Specificially for the use of handgrip, I used it routenly according to instructions on the internet, namely each hand holding 10 times then resting and holding exercises hold 5 seconds then released (so it continues to ache). At first, just enjoy it, but the problem then arises when it's been 2 weeks, suddenly my left wrist was weak, stiff, painful, and tremors arise. In fact, to open the door, cut the nails, and shift the gears of the car. The feeling of pain gets worse when the dawn was cold, which makes my sleep disturbed.

Wise to Use The Handgrip. It is Effective to Train The Wrist Muscles, but If It Feels Uncomfortable and Causes Pain, Stop Immediately or The Wrist is in Danger. Source: My Own Photo
Beside that, history of gout from a large family of fathers, poor eating/drinking patterns, and obesity can make things worse and make recovery time longer. So, there are many factors that cause CTS to worsen.

The Solutions:
 1. The doctor gave some medicine and vitamin: 
- Potaflam 50 (Diclofenac Sodium)
- Voltadex ointment
- Vitamin B12
2. Rest your wrists in pain until recovered
3. Limit the use of salt 
4. Soak warm water mixed with salt for the affected part by CTS in a few minutes, can also be for gout
5. Compress the affected part by CTS with ice in a few minutes, can also be for gout
6. Avoid foods or drinks that are high in purine. To neutralize it, I ate banana, dates, tomato (but tomato seeds must be discarded), watermelon, apple, orange, and strawberry. Then, I drinked plain green tea and honey. Finally, I also take herbal medicines like Habbatussauda. Taking herbal medicines should not be concurrent with medical drugs, there must be a distance of several hours. For example: I take medical drugs at 8 am, so I can only take herbal medicines at 11 am. If in a doubt, it's best to consult a doctor
7. Used wrist splint. This tool was very effective in reducing pain, especially at night, so it will not interfere with sleep. Beside that, this tool speeds up recovery

I Used Wrist Splint On My Left Wrist Which was Affected by CTS
8. Therapy using thorny rubbers balls (by holding it)
This Therapy was Effective to Speeds Up Recovery and Train The Wrist Muscles
9. Proper eating and drinking patterns
10. Drink water at least 8 glasses a day
