Special Issues, Collections and Topics in MDPI journals
The COVID-19 outbreak has been recognized as a global threat to public health. It is caused by the severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus 2 (SARS-CoV-2) and no effective therapies currently exist against this novel viral agent. Strategies to combat pandemics, such as contact tracking, rapid antigenic testing, and biosensors, are still needed. Genetic research allows for the identification of continuously evolving novel variants of the virus, and epidemiological studies characterize and follow their propagation in various regions of the world in which reinfections are now occuring. This Special Issue aims to describe scientific works with novel antiviral or repositioned drugs that can decrease the severity of the disease but also hopes to focus on the relationship between COVID-19 and clinical outcomes, as well as methods for diagnostic procedures. Authors are welcome to submit articles, communications, opinions, and reviews.
