The year of 2020 is momentous for humanity. With the raging COVID-19 across the world, we, the paediatric respirologist, are at the forefront of this war. Besides COVID-19, other aspects of health service go on. Yang YH, et al. presented a nice analysis of the risk factors for pre-term delivery in Taiwan. Pre-term delivery might result in bronchopulmonary dysplasia. Poulter C, et al. presented a comprehensive review of the management of BPD based on their experience in Nottingham, UK. Pre-term babies are at risk for sleep-disordered breathing. Unfortunately, a full sleep polysomnography in young children is often not readily available. An overnight oximetry or questionnaire is often used as a screening tool. Tansriratanawong S, et al. presented an elegant paper on improving the accuracy of McGill scoring of overnight oximetry by incorporating the OSA-18 score.

This Journal is established to promote the practice of paediatric respirology in Asia. As illustrated in the current issue, we have so much to share in terms of knowledge. I encourage readers to share your knowledge in this Journal, which is open access. The openness is important, especially in the current war against SARS-CoV-2. I take this opportunity to wish all readers to stay safe and well.
