Navigating COVID-19 Coverage

This course aims at building practical skills of developing ideas in the coverage of COVID-19. As the pandemic continues, it is important for journalists to develop dynamic ways of approaching the pandemic. There could be pandemic news fatigue as well except when the stories are localised. Their relevance is guaranteed and so is the interest in them and the likelihood of consumption. In this course, we share skills in identifying local stories that can increase local news consumption.
