            Stop COVID-19 Infographics

            I am incredibly proud to share that we (SRHIN) have produced the #stopcovid19 Infographics in over 80 local languages (esp from Africa) to ensure that people have the right health information about preventing #covid19. The infographics can be publicly accessed at www.tinyurl.com/stopcovid.

            It is sad that some people especially in the local communities & slums in Africa still believe that COVID-19 or “Coro Coro” like it’s popularly called is a ‘foreign’ or a ‘rich’ persons disease that cannot affect them. There have been reported cases of Chloroquine abuse among young people & even some African parents were reported to give their children hand sanitiser to drink after coughing to ‘prevent’ them from having the novel coronavirus.

            Hence, it is important that evidence-based messages (from World Health Organization & other reliable sources) are tailor-made in their local languages to reach and empower them.

            With our over 80 infographics designs we can empower so many communities in Africa and beyond & give them hope that we will beat the novel coronavirus.
