More than 186 journalists killed by Covid-19
LONDON, 04 July. - (ANA) - Since the beginning of March 2020, the PEC has started a corona-ticker to pay tribute to the journalists killed by the Covid-19 around the world. Media workers have an important role to play in the fight against the virus, they have to inform about the spread of Covid-19.
The safety of media workers is particularly at risk in this crisis because they must continue to provide information on the ground and testify by visiting hospitals, interviewing political, economic and scientific officials, doctors, nurses and patients.
A number of them died for lack of adequate protective measures when doing thier job. The PEC team offers condolences to families and colleagues of the deceased. - (ANA) -
