AbstractShift work is a rotating work time outside normal working hours, either rotating with the shift work division method; this shift work can cause changes in metabolism, immunological status, and oxidative status, which will cause inflammation due to changes in circadian rhythms. During this Covid-19 pandemic, nurses who are mostly women in providing 24-hour service also continue to do shift work. There are several risk factors that might be in the Covid- 19 pandemics, such as age, hypertension, obesity, and diabetes. The purpose of this study was to look at the physical characteristics of female workers who worked shifts during the Covid-19 pandemic. The results of the study on 40 nurses who worked at Al Ihsan and Muhamadiyah Hospitals West Java showed that 50% were over 31 years old, 97.5% of people had worked >5 years, 80% of people worked in the room, the results were as follows: 97.5% systolic blood pressure normal, diatolic 97.5% normal, BMI less 1.5%, normal 40%, excess 32.5%, 25% fat; Fasting blood sugar 92.5% normal, normal ESR 31 people 97.5%, normal cholesterol as much as 100%, normal triglycerides 95%, aerobic capacity (Vo2max) average 35.15±3.18, while cGMP levels 14.28( 1.4-67.7). These results indicate that there are risk factors for COVID-19, such as high BMI and abnormal fasting blood sugar.
