Special Issue Information
The ongoing and challenging COVID-19 pandemic has now, for a long time, been a public health crisis of unimaginable proportions. Not only does the virus pose a lingering threat to the physical health of many people, but the mental health burden has also increased during times of lockdowns, restrictions, and global economic crises. Additionally, the emerging psychosocial burden of the so-called “Post-COVID-Symptom-Complex” is a new aspect of the continuous pandemic.
This Special Issue of COVID focuses on these different aspects and many more. Articles addressing what developments in the psychosocial burden took place during the pandemic, the role of corona fear/post-COVID fear, and relevant psychosocial factors considering the Post-COVID-Symptom-Complex are of particular interest to this Special Issue. Furthermore, articles presenting data on interventions, especially eHealth interventions and the need for eHealth interventions for burdened groups, as well as review articles on mental health burden are particularly welcome.
