Xenophobia and behavioural responses to COVID-19 in Uganda

“For Uganda, which has neither a strong health system nor a strong economy, the most effective way to fight a pandemic will come from people’s cultural response. This may involve physical distancing or, as seen in the case of Ebola, adapting rituals when burying the dead. But a cultural response can take other forms, too, based on rumours and misinformation.”
