Call for Papers: IJSSS Special Issue - The Inter-Dynamics Pertaining Towards the Future of Covid-19: Socio-Economic Implications


Reasons for the Proposal

The novel coronavirus Sars Cov-2 challenged the modern civilised global community. History records such events in human evolution, and the reasons could be many factors such as population explosion, consumption mode, culture and geography. In the early stage, the covid-19 was identified as a contagious disease, and very soon, the pandemic impacted the socio-economic, political, religious and financial structures (Kaberia & Muathe, 2021). The high spread rate of covid-19 affected millions of people. It caused respiratory illness requiring more intensive care units (Kamal et al., 2021), challenging the traditional public health policy approach. These covid-19 complications are due to its dimensions; the disease seriously affects not only the everyday life of people but also the supply chain and operations across the borders (Pérez Vergara et al., 2021). Although public policy and governance mechanisms effectively contain viral circulation, an empirical study by Anbarasan & Sushil (2021) shows situationality and trends.


Similarly, Fontanet & Cauchemez (2020) says that non-pharmaceutical interventions such as maintaining social distancing, hand hygiene, and face mask have significantly helped contain viral circulation during autumn and winter. Asia used strict tracking tools and traffic surveillance policies to control the pandemic situation; however, this is not the case in every region (Vieira de Jesus et al., 2020). Such an uncontrolled pandemic shakes global health and the economy (Thanh, 2021). Such scientific discussion on Covid-19 shows the need for strategic change and the need for future dynamics of Covid-19.
