A look back at some of our favourite podcasts this season.

In this week’s pick of some our favourite discussions, we go back to that time when the coronavirus pandemic was at its strongest in March.

Many were quick to draw comparisons to how West Africa handled the Ebola outbreak of 2014-2016.

When Ebola hit Liberia in 2014, W. Gyude Moore was working as deputy chief of staff for President Ellen Johnson-Sirleaf.

He had a front row seat as the administration battled the virus; and has important messages for policy-makers in Africa as they confront the coronavirus pandemic.

In this discussion that originally aired on 21 March 2020, Moore reflects on the five lessons learned from the Ebola outbreak.

Understand Africa's tomorrow... today

We believe that Africa is poorly represented, and badly under-estimated. Beyond the vast opportunity manifest in African markets, we highlight people who make a difference; leaders turning the tide, youth driving change, and an indefatigable business community. That is what we believe will change the continent, and that is what we report on. With hard-hitting investigations, innovative analysis and deep dives into countries and sectors, The Africa Report delivers the insight you need.
