Today, we're excited to share a number of new documents that were worked on by volunteers around the world! First, our amazing Spanish translators have completed their work on the KCDC response guidelines for local governments. This is now added to the collection of translations in Russian, Romanian, Italian, and English. In addition, our Russian and Italian translators have completed their translation of the walk-thru / drive-thru installation guides that were posted about a month ago. Once again, thank you for all your hard work, and we hope that this knowledge can reach even more people around the world.

Also, a team of volunteers working with the African Future Foundation (AFF) and the Korean Global Health Forum (KGHF) have kindly shared with us the translations that they have been working on. These are translations of three guidelines published by the KCDC: "Critical care guidelines", "Hospital-level healthcare facilities guidelines", and "Pediatric care guidelines". Thank you all for sharing, and we deeply appreciate your effort to help spread this information to more parts of the world!

Next, SeungCheol Ohk and his team shared with us a new document that describes how to build a walk-thru booth for COVID-19 testing. This was very interesting to see, with focus on making a design that uses readily available materials like acrylic and wooden boards. Thank you for sharing this!

Lastly, the COVID Translate Team has begun translating KCDC's "Operation and management guidelines for nationally-designated inpatient beds". Today, we're sharing the first part of this document, and we'll be uploading more in the near future.
