     Second Deputy Speaker of the House of Representatives Bashir Haddad called for the necessity of forming a media crisis cell along the lines of the governmental and parliamentary crisis cells to confront Corona, appreciating the initiative of the Iraqi media network on the pandemic.

     Haddad said in a statement to the Iraqi News Agency (INA), "The media plays a critical role in many events and during crises, as it deals with matters according to professional standards, in fairness to the truth and in serving the community to overcome the crisis safely and with minimal harm."

     He added, "The sudden appearance of the Corona virus and the accelerating pace of its victims has pushed the media to assume its responsibilities exactly as well as health institutions and cadres, but that the role of the media may be greater, especially in these difficult circumstances the country is going through."
