Call For Paper
COVID-19 has spread faster that any held possible, from visitors of a market in a city of China to more than a million cases all over the world with unbelievable mortality in almost four months ( on 2020/04/09). Several strategies have been designed to confront the extreme pressure on the healthcare system and professionals because of the uncertainty in validity of diagnostic tests and the efficacy of suggested treatments, limited number of intensive care units, lack or shortage of the necessary preventive and therapeutic medication, material and equipment, the unexpected community responses to the governmental regulations and socioeconomic instabilities. The regulatory policies varied across the countries from total lock down and severe social distancing under military control to doing actually nothing special to stop the ongoing contamination. This turns the Coronavirus Pandemic to the biggest worldwide crisis in 21st century dealing with serious disastrous consequences derived from social, political and economical collapses in the involved countries.
