Covid-19 key messages in Pasifika Languages

New Zealand’s Ministry for Pacific Peoples have collated Covid-19 Coronavirus advice from the Ministry of Health and WHO to deliver translations in nine Pacific languages. As the Government launched the coronavirus COVID-19 public health campaign on March 18, calling on New Zealanders to “unite against the virus and slow its spread”.

covidpasifika HERO

Although still no evidence of community transmission, the number of cases in New Zealand is now at 28 and the government has announced a ban on indoor gatherings of more than 100 people to help stop the spread of Covid-19.

A campaign website, which has everything you need to know about COVID-19 in one place, can be found here - https://covid19.govt.nz/(external link).

From simple steps to take in order to unite against the virus, slow the spread and flatten the curve, to finding what help is available and getting the latest updates.

MPP have kindly put together Covid-19 key messages and advice from MOH and WHO and translates them into nine Pasifika languages including Samoan, Tongan, Cook Islands, Niuean, Tokelauan, Tuvaluan, Kiribati, Rotuman and Fijian.

These have been checked by clinicians to ensure accurate information for our Pacific communities.

In English the messages for COVID-19 Coronavirus Outbreak are as follows:

COVID-19 is mostly spread through droplets in sneezes and coughs, so the best way to stop it spreading is by staying home when you’re sick, sneezing and coughing into your elbow, and washing your hands with soap (and drying them well!)

If you are concerned and would like to seek medical advice, Healthline has a dedicated COVID-19 number 0800 358 5453 which is free and available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.

Travel advisories are under close review so please check the Safe travel website as well as the IATA Travel Centre website if you have any upcoming international travel.

Travel to Samoa: All travellers from New Zealand are required to undergo a medical examination within three days before departure and present a medical certificate when checking-in for Samoa bound flights before receiving a boarding pass.
