We are organizing a Special Issue entitled: “COVID-19 Pandemic in Europe: Response to Challenges” that will be published in the International Journal of Environmental Research and Public Health, which is an interdisciplinary, peer-reviewed, open-access journal in the area of public health. More information about the journal can be found at https://www.mdpi.com/journal/ijerph.
The spread of the SARS-CoV-2 virus is a global health emergency involving the health authorities of all countries in an attempt to fight this new pandemic.
Many aspects of the infection have been studied and available epidemiological, clinical and impact data have been used to design preventive interventions. Unfortunately, the spreading of the virus is ongoing, and the impact of the infection is still growing, despite the application of very restrictive preventive interventions. What is more, that impact is huge, both from a clinical and economic point of view.
Healthcare workers, who operate on the front line, and as such particularly at risk, have been greatly involved in terms of infection and unfortunately also of deaths.
Close observance of the rules issued by WHO and other international bodies is essential, as it is pivotal to understand in more detail the dynamics of virus spreading, to identify new diagnostic and therapeutic approaches, and to develop in a reasonably quick time a vaccine.
This Special Issue aims to publish evidence and observations in the field, regarding but not limited to: microbiological aspects; epidemiology; clinical aspects; case management; lab diagnosis; immunology; therapeutic options; vaccine design and development; public health approach; preventive measures; communication.
We welcome the submission of reviews, original research articles, short communications, systematic reviews, and case studies targeting any of these core research questions, as the main goal of this Special Issue is to address some of the core research questions related to the COVID-19 pandemic. High quality submissions from scholars based in Europe will be considered for a publication cost waiver after completion of the manuscript review process and as recommended by the Editorial Board.
