Special Issue Information
The World Health Organization declared COVID-19 caused by SARS-CoV-2 a global pandemic on 11 March 2020. The disease has negatively affected health systems and economies worldwide, and has negatively affected life expectancies and quality of life, especially in our most vulnerable populations. Evidence suggests that one in five individuals globally could be at increased risk of severe COVID-19, due to underlying health conditions. The direct and indirect impact of COVID-19 on non-communicable diseases (NCDs) is still emerging. This Special Issue focuses on the impact of COVID-19 on NCDs diagnosis, treatment, prognosis, and management in the tropics. We are inviting papers which address the following topics:
- Original articles focusing on associations between COVID-19 and NCDs;
- Reviews on the associations between COVID-19 and NCDs (systematic and narrative reviews).
