Special Issue Information
We are currently accepting submissions for our Special Issue for The International Journal of Environmental Research and Public Health entitled “The effect of COVID-19 pandemic on overall and cause-specific mortality” .
The COVID-19 pandemic has had a huge impact on mortality worldwide. Both direct and indirect effects of the spread of SARS-CoV-2 have contributed to the excess in mortality to different extents across countries. Analysis of mortality data provides key findings to assess the impact of the pandemic on the health status of the population, and to monitor healthcare system responses and the effectiveness of the public health measures adopted. However, about two years after the start of the pandemic, some aspects regarding mortality still remain only partially investigated or need to be better clarified. Among these are the changes in causes of death, COVID-19 related mortality, the impact of the pandemic on the inequalities in mortality, assessment of the excess mortality, geographical variations across countries and within the countries, and environmental factors. With this Special Issue, we want to identify and collect original contributions to the analysis of the aforementioned themes that would improve the knowledge of the changes in mortality in times of pandemic.
