 The Broadcast Journalist Center-BJC made the demand in a news release issued yesterday. The release stipulated that the staff of all public, private organizations are working day and night in Bangladesh in the prevention of the deadly virus.
 Due to their relentless professionalism, the people of the country are getting information on how to keep themselves secure. However, there is still a glaring shortage of workforce protection at several broadcasting establishments.
The security equipment for those who are collecting news in the field is very inadequate, hence subjecting them to life risks.
 The BJC demands government and broadcast industry entrepreneurs are as follows, i) Ensure the full security of all journalists working in transmission areas. ii) Introduce risk allowance to those working in transmission areas in such situations. iii) Arrange for medical care if anyone falls ill, ensure proper support for their family. iv) Pay salaries regularly and stop pay cuts.
