Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Since the beginning of the pandemic, new “severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus 2 (SARS-CoV-2)” variants have emerged that have the ability to influence the airborne transmission, virulence, and immune evasion of affected individuals. Many other viral outbreaks have also been observed recently, such as HFMD, Hongkong fever, H3N2, Langya virus, monkeypox, etc. Many outbreaks of diseases, particularly those caused by viral pathogens, pose a grave risk to public health in the present day. Many illnesses have the potential to become pandemics with devastating global repercussions. We must prepare for future viral outbreaks by developing efficient and effective techniques to contain the infection and prevent the development of a COVID-19-like pandemic, which had severe effects on the health, social, economic, and professional aspects of people worldwide, with the impact being more pronounced in low-income countries and poor segments of the population. Hence, to preserve normality, it is essential to establish mitigation techniques and show preparation in advance.

We welcome contributions to this Special Issue on “Management Strategies of Recent Viral Disease Outbreaks: Progress and Challenges". The goal is to provide comprehensive information on all aspects of research related to recent viral outbreaks, molecular mechanisms, epidemiology, and therapeutic management, with a special emphasis on vaccine development.

This Special Issue seeks all types of manuscripts (e.g., reviews, research articles, and short communications). We cordially invite you to contribute to this Special Issue to advance our knowledge of recent viral outbreaks and to discover the means to overcome them.
