Special Issue "Lung Involvement in COVID-19: Short and Long-Term Impact and Management"
Deadline for manuscript submissions: closed (31 October 2022) | Viewed by 1568
A novel coronavirus disease (COVID-19) caused by the severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus 2 (SARS-CoV-2) began to spread rapidly worldwide in December 2019, reaching pandemic level in March 2020. Although most of those infected experience mild to moderate symptoms, a considerable number of cases develop severe pneumonia and respiratory failure. Growing evidence suggests that even in cases that did not require hospitalization, COVID-19 survivors may experience lung changes, as well as short- and long-term respiratory effects such as decreased lung capacity and breathlessness.
This Special Issue of Healthcare seeks to explore various aspects related to the lungs’ involvement in COVID-19. We welcome original epidemiology or clinical research, short reports, and reviews leading to the advancement of knowledge of the impact of COVID-19 on lung health, as well as potentially effective management interventions at different stages of infection.
