The world has experienced over the last decades a significant increase in the number of emerging and re-emerging outbreaks and epidemics associated to viral diseases. Just as an example, Zika and chikungunya emerged in new regions of the World, such as Latin America, where multiple new issues have raised the attention for the rest of the globe, including the concern as an international public health emergency related to microcephaly and Guillain-Barré syndrome increase linked to Zika.
Multiple arenaviruses, hemorrhagic fevers, zoonotic and other vector-borne viruses or arboviruses have emerged as global public health problems and some of them now seen in regions such as Europe and North America, where people, even asymptomatic, from different countries of Africa, Latin America and Asia, are carriers of the infection. For these reasons, in endemic and non-endemic regions is important to keep in mind and to know about the clinical and epidemiological aspects, as well diagnostic and therapeutic implications of these viral diseases in different contexts, even more in the context of globalization and migration, that now concern not only from middle-east to Europe, but also in Latin America from Venezuela to other countries in the region.
We invite authors to submit original research and review articles that focus on or illuminate aspects of the epidemiology, clinical, diagnostics, therapeutics and prevention of Viral Emerging and Re-emerging Infectious Diseases. We are particularly interested in topics that, further from theoretical/basic science value, have a potential epidemiological and clinical utility. The proposed topics should focus on aspects of diseases such as, but not limited to, infections in pregnancy, animal disease, congenital syndromes, chronic complications, neurological issues, mathematical modelling, travel medicine, vaccines, among others.
