Never before has User-Generated Content (UGC) been more crucial for news coverage than on the frontline of our new global health emergency.

Videos and images posted on Instagram, Facebook, Snapchat, Tik Tok and Twitter have been, on occasions, the only possible access to red zones or locked-down areas in the worst affected parts of China, Italy, Iran, South Korea as well as quarantined cruise ships.

In this webinar, hosted by our Head of News Laura Lucchini, we share a transparent insight into how our newsroom is appropriately covering the scale and impact of COVID-19 through the eyewitness videos and accounts of many impacted.

Laura is joined by Charlie Parker, an eyewitness living in Wuhan, the COVID-19 epicenter. Charlie, who has been sharing his footage with us throughout the outbreak, shared his account of life in Wuhan.
