What Millennials and Gen-Zers first dismissed as “just another flu,” comparing it to past diseases like H1-N1 and Mad Cow Disease, has quickly became more serious than we ever anticipated. In its network-wide initiative to keep viewers informed on the spread of COVID-19, Noticias Telemundo this week broadcast an hour-long special, Coronavirus: Emergencia Mundial (Coronavirus: Global Emergency). Hosted by Noticias Telemundo anchors Jose Diaz-Balart and Julio Vaqueiro (pictured at top), along with senior correspondent Vanessa Hauc, the broadcast featured wide coverage of the outbreak from around the country, including a panel with medical experts providing insight on what we can do to prevent further spreading of the virus. In addition to this special, Telemundo has launched a new newscast, Coronavirus: Un País en Alerta (Coronavirus: A Nation on Alert ), which is telecast nightly at 11:35 p.m. It is hosted by Vaquiero.
