Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Since the end of 2019, a novel coronavirus, named severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus 2 (SARS-CoV-2), has spread all over the world, leading to coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) causing serious public health events and huge losses to global health and the economy. Due to its rapid spread and strong infectivity, it is necessary to diagnose and treat patients with different clinical manifestations and suspected patients as soon as possible to reduce the risk of death and control the spread of the virus.

This Special Issue “Serological Studies on SARS-CoV-2 and COVID-19 Infection” aims to focus on the cutting-edge serological research related to SARS-CoV-2 and the COVID-19 pandemic. Specific topics include but are not limited to testing method and technology developments, the diagnostics of the virus, identification of new variants of the virus, results of laboratory statistics, and interesting cases of patients with COVID-19. Manuscripts addressing other relevant and challenging problems are also strongly encouraged.

We cordially invite researchers working in this field to contribute original research articles, short communications, and critical review articles. Short papers on one compound will also be welcome.
