The Pandemic Covid-19 that our society has been through since December 2019 has shed light on the critical role of Occupational and Environmental Medicine in the protection and promotion of Public Health taking into account the recent advances and progress achieved in the scientific world. The environment is totally associated with public health and the deterrence of diseases and infections can only be accomplished through healthy environments (WHO [1]). As per Johansson et al. [2], forecasting dynamics used in epidemiology research would enable scientists to battle epidemics of infectious diseases as seasonal epidemics of dengue as well as of other epidemics. The example of the Corona Virus COVID-19, which emerged in December 2019, is typical of the importance of prevention, proper education and timely response to health crises (WHO [3]). Appropriate actions to prevent the spread of the virus by properly washing hands, covering the cough and staying home for at least two weeks to prevent transmission of the disease are highly recommended to protect global population and thwart exposure to the virus.
