This news article delivers rich information about updates of mass closures caused by coronavirus concerns of many countries. While it is well written, there are still some rooms for improvement.
The headline of this BBC news is concise yet vague: it indicates main parties and issues but fails to give readers details about the story. For example, readers fail to have a clear image of countries’ names and what the closures are about. The suggestions would be: narrow down the range (list the name of major countries, closure actions that the countries take) and specify the story.
Texts, videos, and pictures are used in this news article while the selection of some videos and pictures is a little irrelevant with the message texts tried to deliver to audiences. For example, the video under the section ‘ And what sporting events are off? ‘ presents Boris Johnson addresses the serious consequences of coronavirus outbreak, which is not related to the closures of sporting events at all.
Although there are some types of interactive sessions using in this news article, audiences cannot engage in the discussion of this news story. It would be better to add comment session below the news article to get more engagement.
