The only thing we know for sure about COVID-19 is that we don't know enough about it yet.
Therefore, in this time of uncertainty, keeping ourselves safe from the coronavirus is of utmost importance in keeping our community safe. Experts and researchers have said that the possibility of the spread of coronavirus via newsprint is very unlikely. Even then, The Daily Star has ensured protective masks and gloves for all staff working at the printing press. The lives of those working at the printing press are valuable to us. Ensuring the safety of everyone from the plate-makers to those involved with printing and binding is our first and foremost priority. Even that of the person who delivers the newspaper to your doorstep every morning. We've vowed to make sure the hawker brothers are adequately protected. Every employee at The Daily Star is working hard to deliver the news to your doorstep safely. That's why our plea to you is: Stay sanitized, stay safe
