Looking for multilingual public health resources? Here are some that I've come across in the past week:
From my LESLLA.org list:
Doctors of the World are pleased to be able to share with you the Coronavirus (Covid 19) advice for patients in 21 languages, which were produced in partnership with the British Red Cross, Migrant Help and Clear Voice: English, Albanian, Dari, French, Pashto, Portuguese, Bengali, Vietnamese, Kurdish Sorani is available at the moment, but more languages coming soon: Mandarin, Hindi, Urdu, Arabic, Spanish, Portuguese, Malayalam, Turkish, , Farsi, Amharic, Tigrinya, Somali Please find them here: https://drive.google.com/open?id=193qQN9l04Dvf0N9L5zeWTiXK_DRbrAxg
The guidance is based on the government’s [UK] updated advice and health information. We really hope it will help to ensure this important guidance reaches migrant and asylum-seeking communities in the UK. We would be happy if you could please share these with your patients, service users and your networks widely so that we reach all communities who would like this crucial information in their own language.
If you know someone who would find emails on this subject useful, then please do forward this to them. They can subscribe by sending an email to firstname.lastname@example.org with the word ‘subscribe’ in the subject line.

Thank you for sharing these resources, Jen. The situation with the coronavirus is confusing for all of us. Having materials in several languages to help immigrants and refugees to better understand the issue is invaluable.
