For the journalist, coverage of health-related issues has undergone profound changes in recent years. There was, for example, a large increase in the production of scientific articles, requiring professionals to choose which topics they will direct their efforts to.
Another transformation was the loss of confidence in official sources, as occurred with the Ministry of Health at the beginning of the pandemic, leading to the emergence of the consortium of press vehicles.
I have over 8 years of experience in the news industry. I have worked for various news websites and have also written for a few news agencies. I mostly cover healthcare news, but I am also interested in other topics such as politics, business, and entertainment. In my free time, I enjoy writing fiction and spending time with my family and friends.
