Emergency Response Systems on Corona-virus


Bring forth awareness throughout the globe and disseminate extraordinary scientific advances to the widest community of experts within the scope of Emergence Response Systems on Coronavirus.


The mission of this special issue is to support research into the response systems; assisting basic and clinical scientists to carry out this research; and the dissemination of information on research progress based on current advances in prevention and treatment of Coronavirus.

Current Challenges

At present global scenario, coronavirus remain as fatal throughout the globe and despite synergistic efforts by countries and worldwide relations from past few days. Public health outbreaks are becoming even more complex and challenging. This is likely driven by various concurrent changes in ecosystems, globalization and urbanization, and changes in behaviors and society. The global Coronavirus pandemic causes about hundreds of deaths noticed in very beginning of this year 2020. The emergence of life-threatening infections such as SARS and viral haemorrhagic fevers (e.g., Ebola, Corona) and the rigorous impacts of drug immunity have been vast burdens to many nations and need responsive health systems and successful strategies.

There have been extraordinary steps in the management of infectious diseases and epidemics, including the applications of new technologies in real-time diagnosis, new drug development and artificial intelligence for monitoring. However, it is critical that these advancements are associated more into existing healthcare practices and that the continuous momentum to improve the responsiveness and sustainability of the health systems is sustained.

Summary of Special Issue

This special issue entitled “Emergency Response Systems on Corona-virus” aims to introduce latest research findings regarding any subject area related to infectious diseases with a focus on efficient response systems, effective policies, and interventions.

Potential topics include but are not limited to the following:

• Worldwide emerging threats and vulnerabilities of health systems
• Monitoring of Epidemics, Assessment, and surveillance
• Socioeconomic burdens of global infectious diseases and Population health
• Management of Infectious diseases and prevention
• Interventions to reduce Risk factors
• Implementation sciences and policy development

What is Corona Virus?

Coronaviruses are large group of viruses that are common among animals. In rare cases, they are what scientists call zoonotic, meaning they can be transmitted from animals to humans. The virus can make people sick, usually with a mild to moderate upper respiratory tract illness, similar to a common cold.

• Runny Nose
• Headache
• Cough
• Sore throat
• Fever
• Feeling of being unwell

For those with a weakened immune system, the elderly and the very young, there’s a chance the virus could cause a lower and much more serious, respiratory tract illness like pneumonia or bronchitis.

How It Spreads
• The air by coughing and sneezing
• Close personal contact, such as touching or shaking hands
• Touching an object or surface with the virus on it, then touching your mouth, nose, or eyes before washing your hands
• Rarely, faecal contamination

Prevention Methods

There are currently no vaccines available to protect you against human coronavirus infection, transmission is reduced through:

• Washing your hands often with soap and water
• Avoiding touching eyes, nose or mouth with unwashed hands
• Avoiding close contact with people who are sick If you are mildly sick, keep yourself hydrated, stay at home and rest.

We believe these types of promotional findings would conceptually advance treatment for fatal infectious diseases and promote more studies, including clinical investigation, and ultimately lead to better outcomes for coronavirus eradication.
