A Short Note on Coronavirus Disease 2019 (COVID-19) Outbreak

Main Article Content

DS Briggs


This short note is provided to readers as the current coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) pandemic coincides with the publication of the latest issue. We have sourced summarised data from existing publications and links to those articles rather than attempt a detailed coverage and analysis of a complex, rapidly changing context that requires a range of diverse expertise to address.

 While the articles were sourced from Google Scholar and are contemporary, the spread of the virus has been rapid and variable and, the data has changed. However, we have attempted to provide articles focussed on ‘lessons learned’ as we would like our readers to reflect on what the lessons might be and as academics, researchers and health professionals we might consider what actions we might take to plan for better pandemic  and public  health controls. In fact, we would appreciate responses, preferably in the form of articles for publication.

The ASEAN Institute for Health Development and this Journal have a focus on global health, primary healthcare and health systems management. We would appreciate articles on this topic that are relevant to those interests.
