Religion and COVID-19: Four Lessons from the Ebola Experience

Authors: Katherine Marshall Olivia Wilkinson David Robinson

April 8, 2020

Katherine Marshall, Olivia Wilkinson, and Dave Robinson reflect upon the Ebola crisis of 2014 in order to draw lessons for approaching today's COVID-19 pandemic. By observing Ebola through a religious lens, Marshall, Wilkinson, and Robinson stress the importance of engaging with religious actors and institutions. They write that the four lessons we can take away are to understand the complex diversity of various religious landscapes, to forge effective partnerships, to embrace interreligious cooperation, and that much improvement on understanding religious landscapes must be achieved.
