In December 2019, a new respiratory disease was described in Wuhan, China that was found to be caused by a novel corona virus named Severe Acute Respiratory Syndrome coronavirus 2 (SARS-CoV-2). SARS-CoV-2 has caused a devastating pandemic associated with increased morbidity and mortality rates, and with serious consequences in global health and economy. Globally as of 18 March, 2021, there have been 120,915,219 confirmed cases of COVID-19, including 2,674,078 deaths. The virus is highly transmissible, with a basic reproduction number approximately equal to 2.5, and during the first 15 months of its expansion, the virus has caused several pandemic waves across different geographic areas. The risk of severe disease increases significantly with age, and the central focus of public health measures is to reduce SARS-CoV-2 transmission and the fatality of the disease. This aim will be accomplished by keeping the case burden of COVID-19 patients within the treatment capacity of the healthcare system. Therefore, it is of importance to know the burden of COVID-19 and COVID-19 related diseases, as well as the healthcare burden in different countries. We are seeking contributions that will address COVID-19-related diseases and the healthcare burden, building on information of the pandemic’s prevalence and incidence. Investigations on viral pathogenesis and the clinical aspects of virus infection are also welcome, as well as relevant epidemiological findings.
