With support from our volunteers we translate these expert-written information into different languages (e.g. French, Arabic, Farsi, Chinese, Spanish, Hindi, Urdu, etc.) thereby helping make accurate information accessible to culturally diverse groups.

The main objective of #ScienceExplained is to bridge knowledge gaps and dispel myths surrounding COVID-19 and the Canada-wide response.
