Troy University

Question Description

I’m working on a Writing question and need guidance to help me study.

After reading and watching the various interviews concerning the Coronavirus, write an essay answering the following questions:

Which interview did you find most informative and why?

What questions would you have asked to at least two of these experts that was not addressed in the article or video?

Why do you think those questions needed to be asked?

What has been your evaluation of the media coverage of the Coronavirus? (This is not a question about your politics. I want to know about coverage only, such as if it was too much or not enough coverage, if the questions have been sufficient, what has been stellar or lacking in the coverage, etc.)

Your paper must be at least 500 words. Use proper grammar, spelling, and punctuation. When you submit your paper, it will also be run through the Turnitin plagiarism checker. Therefore, if you quote a source, be sure to cite it.

Coronavirus is the pandemic the world is experiencing today. It is an infectious disease
and part of the large family of coronaviruses (CoV). It is caused by SARS-COV-2 (severe acute
respiratory syndrome coronavirus 2) (Rothan & Byrareddy, 2020). It originated from Wuhan,
China, in a seafood market in late December 2019. As of March 2020, the disease has spread
across all the six continents to more than 186 countries, including the United States. The
condition initially impacted China with more than 47,021 infection cases out of the total 277,055
cases in the world (Hunter, 2020). Italy is also hard hit with death cases surpassing those of
China. The United States has seen an increasingly rising number of COVID-19 cases and deaths.
The increasing coverage is experts analysis on the pandemic and what is available data on the
new disease. This paper discusses some media interviews concerning the Coronavirus.
The Texas tribune conducted the most informative interview. The Tribune’s Alana Rocha
hosted Jason McLellan, an associate professor of molecular biosciences at the University of
Texas. He is also the leading expert on Coronavirus outbreak (Staff, 2020). The interview sought
to answer the most pressing questions about the pandemic and its effect on Texas people. The
interviewer asked the right questions to educate the public. The matters discussed covered issues
like; the transmission of COVID-19, who is most at risk of becoming infected, procedures that
individuals should take if they become infected, how to avoid the infection, and the length of
time it will take to create a vaccine. Jason McLellan answered exclusively and explained in
details the issues at hand, making the interview the most informative.
COVID-19 is an exceptionally infectious disease, and the transmission is so secure. Jason
McLellan explained that it would take 18-24 months to create a vaccine (2020). That would be a
long time to live with a so much infectious pandemic. I would have asked Jason McLellan how



the public will cope up with life to prevent being infected, considering that they will probably be
under quarantine. Also, with full recovery, are any probable chances of re-infection.
In the interview between NBC News and Dr Natalie Azar, she explained that the country
did not have enough emergency departments to carry out testing for COVID-19. The
identification of infected people is critical in the mitigation procedures implemented. The testing
procedures is a public call to be more cautious. The process is long, and hence the confirmation
of the number of infected people is not done faster. ...
