Coronavirus (COVID-19) – Radio – Protect our communities – Warlpiri

This radio ad in Warlpiri explains how Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples can help to protect their communities and prevent the spread of coronavirus.


Coronavirus is a sickness that can spread from person to person.

It can be dangerous, especially for our Elders or people who are already unwell.

We can all help stop the spread in our communities.

Cover a cough with the inside of your elbow instead of your hand.

Wash your hands with soap for at least 20 seconds after you cough or sneeze, go to the toilet, and before you make any food.

Keep way from people who are sick, coughing or sneezing.

Avoid going to places where there are lots of people.

At this time, it is best to stay at home and away from other people as much as we can.

If you are feeling unwell, have a fever, cough, or sore throat, or are worried about someone else, phone your Doctor, clinic or medical service right away for advice.

It is important to stay connected and strong as a community and keep our mob safe.

Visit or your local health service for more information.
