COVID-19: A handbook for journalists
Empowering journalists to help India beat COVID-19 through well-thought-out, researched and responsible articles and feature stories
The media can play a significant role in raising awareness, dispelling myths and exposing misleading information about the COVID-19 pandemic. Journalists can help by promoting kindness, preventing stigmatization and instill confidence among people by disseminating factual and accurate reports. They can contribute to creating a positive atmosphere by publishing and broadcasting survivor stories of recovery.
This handbook for journalists, published jointly by the UNICEF Field Office for Kerala and Tamil Nadu and the Press Institute of India, Chennai, is an attempt to empower journalists (editors and reporters) to help India beat COVID-19 through well-thought-out, researched and responsible articles and feature stories.
