This study aims to determine the Profile of Pulmonary Tuberculosis Treatment in Inpatients with Covid-19 History Status at Pasar Minggu Regional General Hospital for the May 2020-May 2021 Period. This research method is a quantitative descriptive analysis with a retrospective method, taking primary data from records—patient medical. There were a total of 22 patients.
