COVID-19 poses a major global threat to humankind, inflicting devastating consequences as to public health. Its effect has shown racial, age and sex differences. Understanding its pathological and epidemiological variation along with providing a personalized treatment will greatly reduce its damage and enhance the preparedness for a future pandemic caused by either COVID-19 or other infectious diseases.
This Special Issue focusses on the personalization of epidemics, disease characterization, treatment and management of COVID-19, with a special emphasis on countries, regions, sex, aging groups and racial differences.
While an abundance of literature on COVID-19 has accumulated, detailed personalized analysis remains incompletely explored. As the pandemic has so far lasted a year and half, studies with solid experimental and a considerable amount of data, particularly on molecular mechanisms and overall genetics, will provide valuable information for both the general public and the scientific community.
We are looking for papers that provide a novel contribution to optimize the personalization of medicine covering all aspects of COVID-19. For example, we welcome papers related to personalized and sex difference in pathological classification, diagnosis, treatment, recovering process, and COVID-19-related sequelae along with the variations in disease epidemiological patterns, transmission and management according to countries, regions, sex and races.
