Elsevier, a global research publishing and information analytics provider, has recently launched the English version of COVID-19: The Essentials of Prevention and Treatment. A digital version of the book is freely available to download on Elsevier’s Novel Coronavirus Information Center.
Originally published in Chinese by Shanghai Jiao Tong University Press, Elsevier secured the rights to publish the important reference book in English at a time when knowledge sharing on preventing the spread of and treating patients infected with the novel coronavirus, subsequently named SARS-CoV-2, was at its most critical.
The three Co-Editors-in-Chief, Jie-Ming QU, Bin CAO and Rong-Chang CHEN, are senior physicians, as well as clinical and scientific research experts specialising in pulmonary diseases and critical care medicine with relevant experience in Wuhan, China, where the outbreak was first identified in December 2019.
Along with other physicians working in China, the Co-Editors-in-Chief have built-up deep knowledge and insights on the prevention, control, diagnosis and treatment of the disease, all of which are now globally relevant to managing the COVID-19 pandemic.
COVID-19: The Essentials of Prevention and Treatment elaborates on the ethology, pathogenesis epidemiology, clinical characteristics, treatment principles, rehabilitation and prevention, as well as prevention and control measures for COVID-19 to provide healthcare workers first-hand information on the prevention, control, diagnosis and treatment of COVID-19.
Key features of the book include: it is written by experts in a variety of disciplines, and the authors of the book were working in Wuhan and other cities during the first outbreak of the virus.
