Does medical translation play a part to beat the COVID-19 pandemic?

A year ago this month, tech billionaire and philanthropist Bill Gates told fellow donors at the Global Vaccine Summit that to beat the COVID-19 pandemic, the world would need a "breakthrough in generosity" as well as one in science.

Exactly 12 months later the worldwide distribution of vaccines is so lopsided that it is fair to say Gates' hopeful call for coordination was not heeded.

Many rich nations now sit on vaccine surpluses so large that they could treat their populations several times over. Around 1.8 billion vaccines have been administered across the globe, and close to one-third of those have gone to people living in the G7 group of wealthy economies, while just 0.3 percent have been distributed in countries classed as low-income, according to Our World in Data.

"There is a huge need for COVID-19 vaccines around the world, and inactivated vaccines, like those from Sinovac and Sinopharm, are among the safest and easiest to handle," Palacios told the media.

The Sinopharm and Sinovac vaccines, made using long-standing technology, can be stored at normal refrigeration temperatures for long periods, unlike the mRNA vaccines from Pfizer and Moderna, which require ultracold storage.

After widespread inoculations with the CoronaVac vaccine, the number of symptomatic cases declined by 80 percent reduction. The study, published on June 1, found that mortality fell by 95 percent and COVID-19-related hospitalizations fell by 86 percent. Palacios said his team could tell the program was working even before it reached completion, and the incidence of the disease fell markedly in the unvaccinated group when vaccine coverage reached around 70 percent.

Sinopharm vaccines are already widely in use in countries whose own authorities granted approval ahead of the WHO. And the publication of such "robust "late-stage trial data will offer a further boost of confidence in the treatments, said Andrew Catchpole, chief scientific officer at London-based vaccine testing laboratory hVIVO.

The ongoing fight against COVID-19 pandemic worldwide also proves the importance of cooperation among countries. Medical interpreting can be a gainful and significant career.

Medical interpreters provide medical translation services to non-English speakers. They help patients communicate with medical staff, doctors, and nurses. Medical linguists work for many types of medical specialties like otolaryngology, cardiology, microbiology, neurology, psychiatry, endocrinology and so on. Some are employed by interpretation agencies, while others operate their own interpretation businesses. Work is typically done in a clinical setting, but some interpreters work in a home-care environment.

A good medical linguist is more than just a qualified linguist; they’re compassionate listeners who are dedicated to making experiences as comfortable as possible for those involved, especially during the COVID-19 pandemic. Medical linguist are fluency in a foreign language with rich knowledge of medical terminology , professional translation skills, good interpersonal skills and excellent telephone etiquette to do their jobs effectively.
