SARS-CoV-2, commonly known as COVID-19, has disrupted the fibre of human society, penetrating the social, economic, and political core of human existence. The global pandemic has not left any segment of human society unscathed. Rich, poor, north, south, black, and white have all felt the harshness of the pandemic, with sustained implications and consequences. Both developing and developed countries have exposed the similarities and shared human devastation of the 2020 global pandemic.

In all 18 articles the sociologists from India, Japan, Malaysia, Mauritius, Nigeria, South Africa, Turkey, the United States of America and Zimbabwe analysed COVID-19 implications through the theoretical lens of clinical sociology decoding social problems’ impact on men, women, children, families, economies, healthcare, education, communities, societies and nation states.

The authors offer narratives that examine pervasive social problems intensified by the pandemic, further scrutinising context-specific socio-economic, labour, gender, and health conditions intersecting across race, class, gender, and geography.

The innovative methodology adhered to rigorous scientific and ethical standards under arduous conditions. Research findings presented are supported by sound theoretical frameworks establishing a link between theory, methodology and applied and clinical sociological practice.

COVID-19: Sociological Interventions is an essential companion for post-graduate students, researchers, governments and its affiliated organs, political parties, foundations, non-governmental organisations, multi-lateral organisations, consulting companies, international bodies, investment organisations, policy advisors, think tanks, stakeholders in private sector, consultants, community stakeholders, alternative media propagators and practitioners.
