From The New York Times to the Associated Press and ProPublica, journalist Sherry Ricchiardi explores how journalists can tell stories about the impact COVID-19 is having on society's most marginalised groups.
While many journalists around the world report the daily infection rate and death toll of COVID-19, audiences are seeking other stories that show the impact of the virus on their lives. How can journalists tell those wider stories with data?
Charts and maps have become ubiquitous in todays newsrooms. They convey stories with numbers much better than text alone does and they are shared easily. But not every journalist is a numbercruncher or a graphics designer.
