Is it to do with bats, pangolins, monkeys or something else?

As journalists had to convert themselves to health reporters overnight due to a global pandemic, one of the biggest challenges reporters covering COVID-19 are confronted with is the science around it.

As reporters chase possibly the biggest health story in their lifetime, it is not a story easily told. Getting the science is key to successful storytelling.

Subhra Priyadarshini, one of India’s best science journalists and Editor of Nature India will join us on a Zoom discussion to share insights and offer tips on getting the COVID-19 story right and explore one of the biggest and multi-dimensional stories of our time.
