Manuscript Topics
The fast-spreading coronavirus (COVID-19), originating in Wuhan, has infected thousands of people in China and many countries around the world. As of March 4, 2020, this coronavirus has spread to more than 70 countries, with 90,000 cases and 3,100 deaths. In the age of globalization, public health security bears on the life health of all humanity and has multiple impacts on economic, financial and various aspects of the society.

During this epidemic outbreak, governments in various countries adopted strict prevention and control measures to avoid further spread of the virus and to reduce the probability of new patients being infected. Because of the stagnation of most production activities in many countries, the vast majority of ordinary people have been isolated at home. Meanwhile, fake information and rumors have loomed large online, which caused panic and even racial discrimination and hate in some countries. Those negative emotions have led to irrational decisions made by governments, enterprises, and investors for the prevention and control of the epidemic without accurate and comprehensive information, posing inestimable risks to the world's economy and finance.

This Special Issue aims to provide a forum for scholars to share economic and financial insights on the COVID-19 outbreak. We welcome submissions that address issues related to (but not limited) to the following topics:

· Epidemic prediction
· Epidemic prevention and control
· Measurement of public opinion on epidemic
· Epidemic risk assessment
· Epidemic risk management
· Impact of the epidemic on finance
· Impact of epidemic on economic
