Frontline Reporting from COVID Hot Spots Webinar

Thursday, July 2nd
4:00 – 5:30pm, Hawaii time

Journalists in COVID-19 hot spots have faced unprecedented professional challenges and personal risks to cover life and death issues. Our seven US and Asian speakers have been on the ground reporting from Wuhan’s seafood market and hospitals amid local government cover-ups; in East Asian streets and Seattle nursing homes as the deadly virus spread; and in South Asia with massive migrations of hungry workers escaping India’s locked-down cities and hundreds of Pakistani journalists contracting the virus. Journalists have still faced growing government threats and media shutdowns. Hear the journalists' insights, back stories, challenges and lessons learned in the face of an expected second wave.
