AOk. COVID19 language politics.

AO: Wambui notes that the language used on the sign on the door of a butchery seems to indicate suspicion..."COVID-19 suspects" but I also wonder if the sign-maker might have twisted the usual phrase: "if you suspect you have COVID-19...". This brings to mind a conversation we had during our May 14th Working Group monthly calls where we discussed multiple interpretations and understandings of English language terms (see the notes doc here). (E.g. use of alcohol-based sanitizer to kill the virus led some politicians to advocate for increased imbibing of alcohol to kill the virus).
