Cecilia Martin, a Warlpiri woman from the community of Willowra, talks about the precautionary steps her people can take to prevent the spread and threat of Coronavirus COVID-19.

Currently a resident of Alice Springs, Cecilia’s concerns and worries have grown for the safety her people, in particularly her Elders, many whom have pre-existing health issues. Cecilia is concerned that a lot of her Elders may not fully understand the severity and effects of Coronavirus COVID-19 and it is vital that community announcements are also spoken in language.
