A new initiative to inform about the coronavirus in multiple languages

Nuri Kino is a journalist and co-founder of the human rights organisation, ' A Demand for Action. A couple of weeks ago, he came back home from the Trip. The idea was to organize a insamlingskonsert in order to support those who have fled from the terror network IS. But it soon became clear that it would not be possible to hold the concert because of the threat of the spread of infection by the new coronavirus in Sweden.

in the Kino, which had already begun to settle in to what was happening in the refugee camps in Lebanon, where he typically works, whether the new coronavirus had a foothold there. He and his co-workers were able to reach 400 people by the santitetsprodukter, and information on how to treat yourself: hand hygiene, social distance, and avoidance of social gatherings, until it was shut down.

"When I first started talking to people, I realized that they did not have the slightest idea of what it looked like," he said to dagens nyheter.

But then he began to wonder.

" it seems that in Lebanon, what is it, then, in the neighbourhoods and the suburbs.

to gather information about the situation. He was talking to people from a variety of backgrounds: a doctor, a Romanian beggar, the people who live in the skuggsamhällen in Sweden.

" I got a pain in my stomach. This information is failing to reach them. Neither the authorities or the media, succeed in penetrating the various language groups. First, they do not understand what is being said in the press conferences, the language is too difficult and too bureaucratic. For a second, and you will find they are not the new channels.

He continues:

" I was talking to a guy yesterday: the lives of nine people in a tight runner-up, and are working around the clock. Two of them were coughing hard, and have a fever. We know, of course, is not what it is, but it could be that they are infected. We need to help them, and it's the first thing to do is to get the information.

He decided that something needs to be done, and fast. They then began to produce short videos in different languages, which is available both on the home page The idea is that people who already have coverage in some of the communities come into play on the short video clips, with information on the new coronavirus, in order to spread the word to those who might otherwise not receive it.

in eight different languages. The marathon runner Rashid Mohammed gives the details of the language, MIXED martial arts, the artist Beneil Dariush talks on the syrian and the song Francisca are talking about the virus is on the paper.

" We're trying to identify the right people, which many people are familiar with. Perhaps their appeal and reach, in a completely different way than a Swedish civil servant or a politician.

in the Kino hopes that this initiative will make more people understand the implications of what this new coronavirus can lead to.

" We have started to publicise this, and to have reached a deal, but it is not enough. The goal is not only to impart information, and to do so, and that the authorities and politicians to understand the gravity of the information does not reach everyone.

on Monday, got the information from the SVT, though, that six out of the 15 that is, when the dead of the covid-19 in svensksomalier.

" In the somali culture, it is important to spend time together, support, and visiting each other, especially if someone is sick. Once there, the virus spread to Sweden, as it is a lot of information in somalia, and the many people lived on as normal, " said the doctor Jihan Mohamed, a member of the board of svensksomaliska up, this time to SWEDEN.

it was not surprised by the news.

" I thought that at last this information. It cuts to the heart, but I'm not surprised. I was delighted with the courage of the somali-up, it is huge that they are coming out and saying that it is the group of people.

For the Nine Kuri, it is not sufficient, the initiative #tellcorona. He believes that there should be a crisis management group, where people from a range of social activities, mosques, churches and sports clubs that have a network of socio-economically disadvantaged areas could work together in order to make my point.

" We need to do it again, and we need to do in a new way. Then we can work together to try and save as many lives as possible.

it will be available in more languages in the future. He's Sorry, this would appeal to the well-known people of foreign origin also, produce a video clip of their language.

" We need to have more and more language: English, German, Spanish, and thai. Everyone needs to help each other, so that the information reaches its destination. Because we all know that it is not enough, and that it is too bureaucratic.

He followed the to the fact that many people, who actually have mastered English and are able to take the information from the authorities, nevertheless, have chosen not to follow the advice and requests made by the authorities has been given to the following:

" We believe with certainty, we do not reach out. And we are not even able to reach out to those who go to the mountains, how you have planned to reach out to those who don't speak the language and don't have access to the media, saying He's Sorry.
