This Special Issue aims to collect information about models or theoretical procedures that have been newly developed for, or successfully applied to, the ongoing Covid-19 pandemic. Suitable contributions should offer potentially helpful predictions, clarify the inter-dependence of phenomena, or confirm the usefulness of an existing approach. In light of the rising number of contributions addressing various aspects of the crisis, we will not accept incremental research contributions to this Special Issue. We are looking for clearly presented descriptions of either novel or more classical and promising approaches to understanding and controlling the spread of a pandemic. Purely theoretical works (including model development or statistical analysis) are welcome. Numerical works should either be reproducible with minor effort using the manuscript at hand, or have a computer code as part of the Supplementary Information. Large-scale simulations should be sufficiently well described, and offered either as part of the Supplementary Information or as an online application, using currently available data.

Manuscript Submission Information
Manuscripts should be submitted online at www.mdpi.com by registering and logging in to this website. Once you are registered, click here to go to the submission form. Manuscripts can be submitted until the deadline. All papers will be peer-reviewed. Accepted papers will be published continuously in the journal (as soon as accepted) and will be listed together on the special issue website. Research articles, review articles as well as short communications are invited. For planned papers, a title and short abstract (about 100 words) can be sent to the Editorial Office for announcement on this website.
Submitted manuscripts should not have been published previously, nor be under consideration for publication elsewhere (except conference proceedings papers). All manuscripts are thoroughly refereed through a single-blind peer-review process. A guide for authors and other relevant information for submission of manuscripts is available on the Instructions for Authors page. Physics is an international peer-reviewed open access quarterly journal published by MDPI.
Please visit the Instructions for Authors page before submitting a manuscript. The Article Processing Charge (APC) for publication in this open access journal is 1200 CHF (Swiss Francs). Submitted papers should be well formatted and use good English. Authors may use MDPI's English editing service prior to publication or during author revisions.
