HotNews.ro journalist Alina Neagu, winner of a contest of the Center for Independent Journalism for materials on flu prevention and vaccination – Health


HotNews.ro journalist Alina Neagu was named the winner of the contest “Ignored epidemic – why influenza vaccination is important for healthy adults” organized by the Center for Independent Journalism, with the support of Sanofi Romania.

“Why lemon, vitamin C and other miracle supplements do not prevent flu, COVID-19 or seasonal viruses” is one of the four materials with which the journalist Alina Neagu, from Hotnews, won the National Press category award, for trying to combat the most common myths about flu vaccination, the IJC said in a statement.

The prize offered “for their contribution to the correct information of the public, in a period in which falsified information increases the noise in the public space” is worth 1000 euros.

In the local press category, the winner is Tudor Chiriac, from Monitorul de Botoșani, with the portrait of a man who put his life in the service of health and continues to be a model at the age of 90 – Botoşănean example in the fight against influenza (video)

Three other journalists will be rewarded with 500 euros each for their articles, which will increase public confidence in prevention. Mădălina Olariu – Ziarul de Iași, Florentina Ionescu – Medical Life, Alexandra Mănăilă and Costin Bleotu (team) – Video Medicina.ro are the ones who won special prizes.

30 journalistic materials of journalists from local and national newsrooms were entered in the competition, whether it was the written or the audiovisual press. Cristina Lupu, CJI executive director, sees in the competition a chance for correct information and an additional motivation for those who make efforts to deliver factual, correct and verified information.
