Освещение COVID-19 - Создание контента

This course is designed to help journalists navigate the ethical and practical challenges needed to cover pandemics and epidemics looking specifically at the Covid-19 outbreak.

It draws on the experience of those who are covering it now and on the experiences of those who have covered previous outbreaks. Interrogation of the science and data surrounding such pandemics is an important part of the course, and the aim is to draw on expert science and health reporters for this aspect.

The course also addresses key elements such as use of language, and terminology which avoids stigmatisation and discrimination.
