Abstract

Health personnel were on the front lines of the COVID-19 pandemic at the time, with a high chance of the virus spreading. Legal protection for health workers is occasionally disregarded, as though the community is unconcerned and believes it is part of a medical worker's responsibilities. Health professionals are subject to legal protection under Law No. 36 of 2014 concerning Health Professionals, which establishes Professional Standards, Professional Service Standards, and Standard Operating Procedures. In practice, however, officeholders have not completely implemented legislative safeguards. The study looks on how health staff are legally protected throughout the treatment of the covid-19 pandemic, as well as the challenges they face in getting work safety and health guarantees during the epidemic. With data acquired from literature research, this study utilized a normative legal method to find out and understand the legal protection of health staff during the treatment of the covid-19 outbreak. According to the findings of our research on health workers, legal protection has only been gained, particularly in the form of monitoring and advice, but there are still flaws in the legal protection efforts offered since certain health workers' rights have not been fulfilled.
