Special Issue Information
Brazil was one of the countries most impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic. Successive waves with a large volume of SARS-CoV-2 infection cases and deaths occurred in the country, especially between the year 2020 and the first half of 2021. This process fortunately began to be circumvented as vaccination evolved in the country. Despite the difficulties, Brazilian science gave important answers, and Brazilian researchers definitely contributed to tackling the pandemic. Brazilian research groups were involved in diagnosis, epidemiological surveys, genomic surveillance, clinical studies of vaccines, in addition to relevant studies on the biology of infection and pathogenesis in vitro and in vivo. The country still has several initiatives in progress for the development of new vaccines, monitoring vaccine effectiveness, therapeutic strategies, long COVID-19, and continuous monitoring of the virus’ evolution. In this Special Issue, we intend to receive contributions from colleagues in the most diverse aspects of SARS-CoV-2 and COVID-19 in Brazil, seeking to compile some of Brazilian science’s relevant contributions to this topic.
