Journalists covering the novel coronavirus pandemic are invited to these webinars.

As part of its Global Health Crisis Reporting Forum, the International Center for Journalists (ICFJ) and IJNet are hosting a series of video chats with experts on the COVID-19 pandemic in English and Spanish.

The webinar series, which launched March 24, focuses on a range of information to help journalists report on the novel coronavirus from their countries.

Journalists are encouraged to ask questions during the chat. Experts’ comments and answers are on the record and their quotes can be used in stories.

Past webinars include “Lessons learned from the Ebola epidemic, with Dr. Samba Sow,” “Los datos claves que debemos entender de una pandemia,” “How is COVID-19 affecting children?,” “COVID-19 y las Américas: Charla virtual de migración y salud” and more. The archived videos can be accessed at any time.
