Multiple Criteria Analysis, Covid-19, Analysis Hierarchy Process, Preventive Strategy


The spread of the COVID-19 outbreak has a significant impact on human life around the world, especially in Indonesia. Many aspects have been affected by the spread of the COVID-19 virus, such as social, cultural, and economic aspects. This research using multiple criteria analysis decision making to complete the preventive strategy of COVID-19. One method that can be used to analyze possible preventive the spread of Covid-19 is Analytic Hierarchy Process. Through this model, the preventative approach can be determined by some of the activities with the potential spreading the COVID-19 outbreak. Subsequently, each activity is given weight by AHP and analyzes the best prevention strategy by selecting activities with the highest value. Each activity has been the most significant risk factor in spreading the virus. And The contribution of this research is to obtain strategic planning for Coronavirus disaster management, especially in Yogyakarta.
