Media professionals across the world are at high risk due to their profession
Pakistani journalists are at high risk due to lesser facilities
As the environment around us gets riskier everyday, there are people telling us details. They are journalists, as we know. They dig out stories, uncover truths, share information and inform the people on every detail.
Journalists have to be in field and cover the stories without caring for their own safety or health. The same is the case where the media men are likely to contract virus due to their volatile jobs.
The journalists are covering the corona patients, the medical conditions, the hospitals and medical centers, and they are more likely to get the virus.
As of now, three Pakistani journalists have contracted virus. It is reported by another Pakistani journalist on Twitter.
According to the information, the three journalists were in field to cover corona pandemic. They became the victim themselves.
Thumbs up to the journalists who are fighting this war along with physicians, paramedics and security forces.
