Chinese health authorities reported a cluster of pneumonia cases of unknown aetiology in the city of Wuhan, Hubei province in December 2019. The WHO declared the international SARS-CoV-2 outbreak a Public Health Emergency of International Concern. It is necessary to better characterize the virus in terms of structure, life cycle, tropism, genetic evolution, pathogenetic mechanisms, and associated pathologies. At the same time, it seems necessary to develop novel therapeutic approaches and rationale, and possibly antiviral compounds and vaccines. All researchers working in the fields of human viral infections and antiviral drugs are cordially invited to contribute original research papers or reviews to this Special Issue of Medicina.
