Dear Colleagues,

There is a dire need to raise awareness, both from the general public and scientific perspectives, to know more about the Coronaviruses (CoVs) and COVID-19. As evident from the statistics, so far, the appearance of Coronavirus outbreak has brought several complications and now emerged as an animal-human-health related pandemic issue. The wide geographical spread and transmissibility of newly emerged novel-Coronavirus (2019-nCoV) and severity of (CO: corona, VI: Virus, D: Disease, 2019) (COVID-19) raised serious concerns about the future trajectory of the 2019-nCoV/COVID-19 outbreak. Though Coronaviruses are not new at all and have been associated with human and animal diseases (domestic and wild animals, poultry, and rodents) for the past many years. However, such zoonotic infections, as either pandemic, epidemic, and endemic, have a damaging effect and impose a significant threat to human life, public security, health, and national economic growth. From the future perspective, it is alarming and challenging to prepare for a complicated situation to keep human beings at the safe end.

Out of an abundance of caution, it is recommended that those ill with COVID-19 limit contact with animals until more information is known about the virus. Have another member of your household take care of walking, feeding, and playing with your pet. If you have a service animal or you must care for your pet, then wear a facemask; don’t share food, kiss, or hug them; and wash your hands before and after any contact with them.

As always, careful hand washing and other infection control practices can greatly reduce the chance of spreading any disease. The National Association of State Public Health Veterinarians’ (NASPHV) compendium of standard precautions is a good reference for appropriate infection control in veterinary practices.

This special issue will glance at recent trends and updates that aim to further insight to tackle Coronaviruses and COVID-19. Breakthrough research and concise and to the point review papers dealing with Coronaviruses and COVID-19 using different strategic measures are welcome in this special issue. The articles should be designed spanning across all important aspects encompassing the thematic aspects of this special issue.

Article Types: Original research and Reviews are welcome in this issue.

Spanning across all aspects encompassing the following key points are of supreme interests: Contribution is open to researchers of all nationalities
