What is next?

We see that media coverage on the relationship between COVID-19 and religion is slowly declining. 35% of all news summaries on the EARS dashboard covered the topic of COVID-19 in April 2021 – when the number of COVID-19 cases spiked across Europe as well.[1] However, this number fell to 6% in September 2021. Nevertheless, our analyst team will keep covering the news on religion and COVID-19 as published in media across Europe.
