Will the world learn any lessons from the COVID-19 coronavirus pandemic?

In the face of the escalating global pandemic, there has been some confusion in Canadian communities about how to respond. With every passing day, the reality of the crisis is becoming more apparent as schools and public places are shut down in places across the country, and more precautionary measures for social isolation are rightfully implemented.

Such circumstances, while about maintaining public safety first and foremost, also take a toll on public morale. As anxiety levels and fears about the uncertain future escalate, faith organizations have a major role to play.

Not only do thousands of Canadians turn to their faith organization for guidance, essential services and consolation, such groups are also a source of leadership for directing worshippers to responsibly follow public health directives.

More than ever before Canadians must come together as one nation to protect our most vulnerable.

Sharaf Sharafeldin, executive director, the Muslim Association of Canada
