(GermanPolicy.com) – At the ceremony to award the Hanns Joachim Friedrichs Prize, virologist Christian Drosten called on journalism to undertake a necessary “reflection” with regard to the Corona pandemic. There is an immense responsibility with the media, because they reflect the reality of the people in Germany. Journalists should ask themselves to what extent escalation and personalization are possible. “Sharing opinions to control a market share” – may this be? “In a pandemic, irresponsible action costs human lives,” Drosten warned.
