More than five million Australians speak a language other than English, and given the complexity of COVID-19, it's essential for these communities to have access to and a clear understanding of vital health information. Trusted and accurate news in language is of particular importance with misinformation and opinion around COVID-19 providing further challenges for Australians whose first language is not English. 

Here are some other useful COVID-19 in-language resources:
