The COVID-19 pandemic, caused by the SARS-CoV-2 virus, has prompted an outstanding worldwide response. In the research community, various aspects of the disease are being investigated, from therapeutics and vaccines to social implications. This complex public health crisis is tackled in a timely Special Focus Issue of Future Virology, entitled “COVID-19: studying the global pandemic”. The issue includes a range of opinion-based articles such as Special Reports and Commentaries, as well as original research papers from experts in the field, which together create a useful resource for researchers and clinicians.
In the foreword, the Guest Editors, Stefano Rusconi and Frederick G. Hayden, reflect on the key messages from each article.
In this In Focus, the Editors highlight some of the articles from the Special Focus Issue, we hear from the authors in behind the scenes interviews and keep up with the latest news on the pandemic.
