During the initial outbreak of the COVID-19 pandemic, there was a worldwide struggle to control the spread of the disease and save lives. As life with the pandemic continues, a range of social mental and medical consequences have emerged. it is important to have a broad understanding of the health effects of the pandemic and the measures taken to control it. Health, according to the World Health Organization, is "a state of complete physical, mental and social well-being and not merely the absence of disease and infirmity".
We call for papers that will improve our understanding of the effects of the pandemic, including topics such as:
- The physical and mental impact of the infection itself, i.e., long COVID.
- The physical and mental health consequences of lockdowns and social distancing.
- The impact on health in different cultures and different age groups.
