Description

Streptococcus sp beta-hemolyticus Group A is the most common bacterial cause of upper respiratory tract infections, namely pharyngitis. The case of pharyngitis in the world because of this bacteria reaches 616 million cases each year, One of the high-potency spaces for the presence of Streptococcus sp bacteria in the air is a flat, because of the same building area and building characteristics as well as susceptible to the occurrence of indoor air pollution. The purpose of this study was to determine the relationship between physical air quality and occupancy density with the presence of Streptococcus sp bacteria in the air. The type of research is observational analytical with cross sectional approach. The sampling technique is purposely conducted by Purposive Random Sampling with the criterion of permanent residents for 5 years and status as citizens of Bandung. Population in this research is all residential unit on long block type Flat D Sarijadi Flats. Analysis of data using univariate analysis, and bivariate analysis using correlation test. The total of identified Streptococcus sp bacteria ranged from 4 CFU/m - 38 CFU/m} to an average of 18.92 CFU/m”. The results showed that there was a correlation between indoor humidity level (p value=0,000), natural lighting intensity (p value=0,004), and number of occupants (p value=0,042) and no relation between room temperature level (p value=0,327), and respondent behavior (p value = 0,212) with presence of Streptococcus sp bacteria in air at Sarijadi Village Flats.
