As authorities are trying to stop the spread of coronavirus, more and more countries are imposing travel bans. This makes it hard for newsrooms to send their staff to cover international news.

But there is another way. Canada-based journalist Eva Holland started this Google spreadsheet where you can find nearly 600 freelancers (more are being added) around the world ready and willing to take assignments and work within local restrictions.

For editors, you can search the document by keyword, for example, for a specific location - just use the ‘find’ function in the edit dropdown menu.

If you are a freelancer, you can add yourself to the document via the Google Form linked in the highlighted text at the top of the list.
