The novel coronavirus exposed the inequalities in our healthcare system and how this virus is killing people of color at a higher rate in the United States. Similarly, many people died in Puerto Rico after they contracted leptospirosis immediately after Hurricane Maria destroyed the island in 2017. In this session, we’ll discuss the challenges of covering diseases or bacteria that surface after a natural disaster such as a hurricane. We’ll go deep into the process: how to report, obtain data and documents to tell the stories, strategies to learn about the subject at hand and how we humanized those numbers with real people.
