EDITORIAL FORWARD 2020
The outburst of Pandemia from COVID19 undoubtedly affects every aspect of life and human activities on Earth. Humans have experienced Pandemics since the remote past (historic periods documented but prehistoric periods, too). We present some thoughts on this as Feature Article by the Editor in Chief.
We warmly thank all reviewers who timely respond and submit their reports in current harsh times.
