Reporters are heroes as well

According to to World Health Organization:

What is a Corona Virus
“Most people infected with the COVID-19 virus will experience mild to moderate respiratory illness and recover without requiring special treatment. Older people, and those with underlying medical problems like cardiovascular disease, diabetes, chronic respiratory disease, and cancer are more likely to develop serious illness.

“The best way to prevent and slow down transmission is be well informed about the COVID-19 virus, the disease it causes and how it spreads. Protect yourself and others from infection by washing your hands or using an alcohol based rub frequently and not touching your face”.

“Who is at risk of developing severe illness?
While we are still learning about how COVID-2019 affects people, older persons and persons with pre-existing medical conditions (such as high blood pressure, heart disease, lung disease, cancer or diabetes) appear to develop serious illness more often than others.”

“Can humans become infected with the COVID-19 from an animal source?

Coronaviruses are a large family of viruses that are common in animals. Occasionally, people get infected with these viruses which may then spread to other people. For example, SARS-CoV was associated with civet cats and MERS-CoV is transmitted by dromedary camels. Possible animal sources of COVID-19 have not yet been confirmed.

To protect yourself, such as when visiting live animal markets, avoid direct contact with animals and surfaces in contact with animals. Ensure good food safety practices at all times. Handle raw meat, milk or animal organs with care to avoid contamination of uncooked foods and avoid consuming raw or undercoated animal products.”

“Israel’s Health Ministry has confirmed that the number of coronavirus cases in the country has climbed to 1,238. 25 people are in serious condition.”

There are 59.138 Corona virus cases in Italy, 5, 476 deaths, 7.026 recovered.
United States: 35,070 Corona Cases, 458 deaths, 178, recovered.

These are some of information around the world.
Stay at home stay safe.
Salute doctors, however, salute journalists, reporters too, because without them we would not have relevant information.
Because of us they expose to risk.
They are heroes as well.
