Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) is an ongoing pandemic resulting from severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus 2 (SARS-CoV-2), first isolated in December 2019 in Wuhan, China. Despite possible multisystem involvement, the lung is by far the most commonly affected organ in this disease.

COVID-19 pneumonia can present varying degrees of severity and respiratory deterioration. The spectrum of lung involvement ranges from mild flu-like cases to devastatingly rapid progression to respiratory distress, requiring intensive care support.

It is thus vital that we broaden our knowledge of the epidemiology, clinical manifestations, diagnosis, treatment, and evolution of this disease.

A better understanding of COVID-19 pneumonia could lead to significant improvements in medical treatment and outcomes for many patients.

We encourage the submission of articles and manuscripts that address this topic and continue advancing the scientific knowledge on COVID-19 pneumonia.

Dr. Javier de Miguel-Díez
Guest Editor
