Notes for reviewer


There are some of the sources serving a particular function, my comment might help you know where to look and for what (because, after all: Indian media):

  1. JHCSSE: used for the last para: number of confirmed cases, recovered cases and deaths in India. Requires JavaScript
  2. Tanu Kulkarni/The Hindu: Last para: schools were closed.
  3. Situation report(PDF): "According to the WHO's situation report dated March 16, the virus claimed 6606 lives, and 167,515 cases were reported of this disease."
  4. IANS/ Schools closed, second source.
  5. WHO(QnA): (Look for "Are there any medicines or therapies that can prevent or cure COVID-19") "While some western, traditi..."
  6. Translated quote is from Neelam Pandey/ThePrint. They have a transliterated version. I translated the Hindi version to English.
  7. The Hindu has been ranting about the need to pay for journalism. I bypassed it by disabling JavaScript. Else archived sersion also helps.

Would have had trouble finding the "While some western..." without that note; that page also needs javascript (otherwise there's no way to expand the answers to questions). --Pi zero (talk) 21:21, 17 March 2020 (UTC)Reply

We do have a policy against pay-to-read sources. And sites that use that sort of javascript-based paywall clearly intend pay-to-read, which we ought to respect; I might choose not to insist, in a given instance, but it would be perfectly reasonable for a reviewer to object, and reporters should be discouraged from using such... --Pi zero (talk) 22:11, 17 March 2020 (UTC)Reply
While typing the notes, I was thinking how this will mean I may never read The Hindu (not that I actively read it, but even when doing an internet search, I won't click it) again. I would not even use it now, and we already have poor quality of journalism here.
