Scope of the book:

The COVID-19 pandemic has affected every aspect of social life around the globe, from individual relationships to institutional operations at local and global levels. As people do their best to mitigate transmission through strict restrictions on people's movement, connections and interactions, the disease continues to decimate families, upend governments, crush economies, affect migrants, and tear through the social and economic sector. These social changes and transformations also brought psychosocial health problems. During this time, modern societies should be studied from different fields of social sciences. The purpose of this book is to examine, collect and report the social effects of the COVID-19 pandemic in different parts of the world. Academics working in social sciences are expected to write about their country's COVID-19 experience. The authors are free to choose topics about the pandemic in their country.
