Since its discovery in Wuhan in December 2019, the 2019 novel coronavirus (COVID-19) has rapidly spread to all provinces, municipalities, and autonomous regions in China and has been introduced to more than twenty countries in Asia Pacific, Europe, and North America. This novel virus has presented a challenge to epidemic disease prevention in many countries and regions and has had a great impact on economic, financial, and social development.
Taking China as an example, as of 12 February 2020, 42,744 people had been infected, 1017 people had died, and 21,675 people had suspected cases of the disease. At present, most provinces and cities in China have adopted closed management methods to avoid further spread of the virus and to reduce the probability of new patients being infected. However, in the past three months, because of the stagnation of most production activities in China, the vast majority of ordinary people have been isolated at home, which has caused many social and risk management problems and has also had an inestimable impact on China's economic and financial development.
The research topics of this Special Issue include: big data analysis; big data prediction; data mining; risk modelling; risk simulation; risk calculation; risk forecasting; risk assessment; risk management; epidemic prevention and control; outbreak emergency management; and the impact of the epidemic on the economy, finance, people’s psychology, education and universities, social development, companies, and people’s lives.
We think that research in this topic is very important, and we warmly encourage researchers, teachers, students, engineers, academics, and industry professionals from all over the world to present their current insights in our special issue.
