Special Issue "Emerging Viruses: Surveillance, Prevention, Evolution and Control"
Deadline for manuscript submissions: 15 November 2019.
Emerging viruses represent a major concern for public health offices. Climate changes, the international migration of people and products, deforestation, and other anthropogenic activities (and their consequences) seem to be closely related to the emerging of new viruses, triggering an increasing number of notified outbreaks, epidemics, and pandemics.
In this Special Issue, we encourage colleagues to submit manuscripts related to the surveillance, detection, and evolution of emerging viruses, describing from local outbreaks to worldwide viral pandemics. We also welcome manuscripts describing new methods and technologies adapted or created for the study, prevention, and control of emerging viruses. The goal of this Special Issue of Viruses is to serve as a collection of the current knowledge on a broad range of emerging human, animal, and plant viral diseases. Both original manuscripts and reviews are welcome.
