As of January 2020, Covid19 has led to actual and figurative infections—the latter acting on an emotional and behavioral level and being mostly nurtured by data and their (mis-)interpretation, further spread by media and social networks. Both types of infections influence one another interactively. The events have revealed the severe impact of data illustration on subjective and collective perceptions, predominantly leading to counterproductive anxiety, mistrust, and stagnation.
The Special Issue provides a venue for authors from various disciplines to disseminate crucial information about the SARS-CoV2 virus and the associated outbreak of COVID19.
The scope of the issue shall encompass the following:
- Original articles about the SARS-CoV2 (including pathology, virology, biology, transmission, etc.)
- Original articles about the COVID19 (clinical and translational data)
- Viewpoints (impactful reports, commentaries, and letters)
- Perspectives (based on systematic reviews), such as predictions, estimations, comparisons to other viral entities, etc.
- Innovations: drug development, original preventative measures, etc.
