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.
