Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues:

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.

The rapid spread of new coronaviruses throughout China and the world in 2019–2020 has had a great impact on China’s economic and social development. As the backbone of Chinese society, Chinese universities have made significant contributions to emergency risk management. Such contributions have been made primarily in the following areas: alumni resource collection, medical rescue and emergency management, mental health maintenance, control of staff mobility, and innovation in online education models. Through the support of these methods, Chinese universities have played a positive role in the prevention and control of the epidemic situation. However, they also face the problems of alumni’s economic development difficulties, the risk of deadly infection to medical rescue teams and health workers, infection of teachers and students, and the unsatisfactory application of information technology in resolving the crisis. In response to these risks and emergency problems, we propose some corresponding solutions for public dissemination, including issues related to medical security, emergency research, professional assistance, positive communication, and hierarchical information-based teaching.

Recently, a novel coronavirus pneumonia (2019–nCoV) outbreak occurred in Wuhan, China, rapidly spreading first to the whole country, and then globally, causing widespread concern. From the perspectives of early warning and identification of risk, risk monitoring, and analysis, as well as risk management and handling, we propose corresponding solutions and recommendations, which include institutional cooperation, and to inform national and international policy-makers.
