Submit your manuscript today for this special issue

The Journal of the Pediatric Infectious Diseases Society (JPIDS) is now accepting submissions for a special issue titled “COVID-19: A Focus on Pediatrics”. A better understanding of why children are less likely to be infected may hold key answers related to the immune response and help inform vaccine strategies. In addition, the significance of understanding the role of children in spreading the virus has important implications for both controlling the pandemic, as well as the education of our children (i.e. school closures).

With a focus on articles related to the challenges and effects of the pandemic that are unique to children or certain subpopulations of children, this special issue aims to further inform and define the knowledge base and resources required to manage this public health crisis in children.

Authors are invited to submit original articles by July 15, 2020.
