For Public Attention: Do not hoard masks/sanitisers. These are to be used rationally and more so by the frontline health workers. DO NOT PANIC! We need to collectively step up our hygiene and microbiological barrier as a society. Do not fall for quacks. #COVID2019.
Drink as much as warm sterile fluids in order to keep yourself well hydrated. Follow cough etiquettes, especially in public places. Report to a Physician without delay in case of fever, sore throat, running, diarrhoea, dry/productive cough.
An infection with #2019nCoV does not mean a ‘death warrant’, however extremes of age and those with associated co-morbid conditions like Diabetes, Renal Diseases and HIV/AIDS constitute the ‘risk group’. We are to understand the challenge in order to brave it.

Many families (mine included) face tough decisions on what #languages to speak at home. There's a lot of #myths about early #bilingualism , like:
-Kids will get confused
-They'll have lang delays
-They won't learn the majority/dominant language

In my family, my dad spoke #arabic and my mom spoke #english. My dad was concerned about me learning English so after about 5 y/o, we hardly spoke Arabic. Since I didn't have any Arabic-speaking peers or teachers, my Arabic suffered attrition and now I understand, but not speak
My case isn't uncommon either-many early #bilinguals and #heritagespeakers often don't have the linguistic support systems (at home or in school) to maintain their languages, due to factors such as lang myths, discrimination, lang policy in schools, etc
