Special Issue: Outbreak of a Novel Coronavirus: A Global Health Threat

Journal of Health Education Research & Development is pleased to announce Special issue on "Outbreak of a Novel Coronavirus: A Global Health Threat”.

The SARS-Cov2 was first identified in the city of Wuhan, China in December 2019. Wuhan is a large, landlocked city of about 11 million inhabitants and is the capital of Hubei Province. It has been estimated that about 15% to 20% of cases with COVID-19 may be categorized as severe, but that may be an inaccurate assessment because a number of asymptomatic cases which do not seek medical attention are unknown and may even compose the majority of all cases. Early epidemiological data from China have found that the average age at which a person contracts COVID-19 is 49 years, and most cases occur in people between the ages of 30 and 79 years. Only about 1% of cases occurred in patients under the age of nine.
The pathogen was isolated on January 7, 2020, which was initially named "2019 novel coronavirus" or 2019-nCoV and the disease was named on January 12, 2020, by WHO as the coronavirus disease of 2019 or COVID-19. The isolation of the virus allowed Chinese scientists to develop a rapid testing method for point-of-care. The first fatality in a person confirmed to have the SARS-CoV2 occurred on January 11, 2020.
With the same purpose our Journal “Journal of Health Education Research & Development” is announcing Special issue Call for paper on "Outbreak of a Novel Coronavirus: A Global Health Threat". We welcome both solicited and unsolicited submissions that will contribute to this special issue.
