Coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) is an infectious disease caused by SARS-CoV-2. It was first identified in December 2019 in Wuhan, Hubei, China, and has resulted in an ongoing pandemic. As of July 2020, more than 13.8 million cases have been reported across 188 countries and territories, resulting in more than 590,000 deaths.
COVID 19: Tackling Global Pandemics through Scientific and Social Tools, is an amalgamation of scientific and social perspective. The book provides a selection of handpicked themes and topics relevant to COVID 19 pandemic across various disciplines delivered by experts in the domain. The Opinion section is a unique component of this book discussing important issues concerning the COVID 19. COVID 19: Tackling Global Pandemics through Scientific and Social Tools serves as single source of information ranging from clinical research to social science and even biotechnology to engineering in a single platform. But there is scarcity of a quality document that summarizes various aspects of a single event. Therefore, the purpose of this book is to provide scientific and social information on COVID 19 to all sectors of readers i.e. from students to researchers and even policy makers
Divided into 11 chapters, the book begins with an in-depth introduction to the highly infectious disease COVID19. Followed by chapters on interventions, vaccine development, prevention and control COVID 19: Tackling Global Pandemics through Scientific and Social Tools also provides insights to current global situation, mathematical models and social factors like distancing and hand-washing. The book closes with a review on the use of artificial intelligence and engineered intervention.
All are presented in a practical short format, making this volume a valuable resource for very broad academic audience.
