COVID-19 has emerged as a major pandemic affecting many countries and territories. Every day, the incidence and death rates due to COVID-19 are escalating in an exponential trend. The U.S. is the country most affected by this pandemic in the world. In this context, the editors of the International Journal of Environmental Research and Public Health (IJERPH) have initiated a Special Issue of the journal - COVID-19 in North America: Clinical, Psychosocial, Laboratory, and Epidemiological Aspects. IJERPH is a peer-reviewed open access scientific journal published by MDPI, with an impact factor of 2.849. As the name of the Special Issue suggests, the editors intend to make the focus of the Special Issue North America due to the current situation in these countries. To encourage researchers, quality papers from North America will be free of charge after completion of the manuscript review process and as recommended by the Special Issue Editor Team.
Type of articles: The editors welcome original articles, communications, case reports, and review articles (systematic review and meta-analysis) describing research findings on COVID-19 in the North American countries. The subject areas may include epidemiology, risk factors, the disease burden, societal impact, psychological effects, pathogenesis, immunology, microbiology, vaccines, clinical presentations, causes of death, autopsy findings, management, treatment algorithms, diagnostic scoring systems, clinical trials, machine learning, predictive models, etc.
