Special Issue Information
Around two years have passed since coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) emerged, having an unprecedented impact on humanity. Though considerable knowledge evolved during this period, many key questions are yet to be answered. While various new interventions have proven to be effective, we still suffer from novel challenges, such as variants of the virus which are of concern. Epidemiological implications and the responses of public health systems to COVID-19 vary at the national, regional, and local level. Several countries that were at first able to control the virus later experienced a strong resurgence again. Sharing and discussing individual experiences will add knowledge to current evidence and is significant for better understanding and surpassing challenges of the pandemic. In this special issue “Epidemiology and Public Health Systems during COVID-19” of the International Journal of Environmental Research and Public Health, we welcome you and your colleagues to submit manuscripts including articles, short communications, and reviews, addressing epidemiology and public health systems. Possible themes range, for example, from the epidemiological impact of COVID-19, contact tracing, and active surveillance to transmission dynamics, surge and decline, characteristics of SARS-CoV-2 variants, public health response and intervention, and implications on public health systems. We look forward to receiving your contributions on COVID-19 research.
