Coronaviruses (CoV) and COVID-19 Pandemic

A section of Healthcare (ISSN 2227-9032).

Section Information

The outbreak and spread of the COVID-19 pandemic have been an issue of critical concern, posing a significant threat to the health sector globally. Healthcare workers who operate on the front line were among the most involved professional categories for both workload and level of infection contracted.

Due to the social and healthcare burden, countries have adopted several strategies to control the spread of the virus. Fortunately, in 2020, the efforts made across the world to rapidly develop vaccines led to several effective vaccines approved in record time. In fact, the vaccination campaign is the primary method to counteract the COVID-19 pandemic; however, sufficient vaccination coverage is conditioned by people’s acceptance of these vaccines.

At the same time, it is still necessary to develop a more detailed understanding of the spreading dynamics of the virus and its variants, to identify both better diagnostic and therapeutic approaches, as well as vaccine strategies.

In this context, this section aims to publish scientific evidence regarding: 

  • Microbiological and epidemiological aspects of the coronaviruses (CoV) and COVID-19 pandemic;
  • Laboratory diagnosis;
  • Therapeutic options;
  • COVID-19-related knowledge and behaviors;
  • COVID-19 vaccine acceptance and hesitancy;
  • COVID-19-related changes in lifestyles and mental health;
  • COVID-19-related mental health disorders (e.g., anxiety and depression);
  • New public health approaches;
  • Environmental control measures;
  • Correct communication campaigns.
