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.

Translators without Borders Glossary for COVID-19

Translators without Borders (TWB) is identifying key terminology that people use to talk about COVID-19 as well as commonly-used technical terms to develop a multilingual, plain-language glossary.

The glossary is designed to assist field workers and interpreters engaging with communities to raise awareness about COVID-19. It aims to improve communication between responders and affected communities by providing accurate translations of useful terminology related to the disease outbreak. In the coming weeks, we will keep adding new terms and additional languages to make this glossary far more widely relevant.
