In this our second webinar, we bring you voices from across the continent to paint a picture of reporting on the Covid-19 pandemic and consider ideas on whether it is important for journalists to amplify the voices of scientists and how best to work with them.
We will also look at journalists’ responsibility to debunk conspiracy theories, do explanatory journalism, data journalism, fact-checking and proper research in order to better inform citizens for the post-Covid era.
