We are grateful to the Authors thanks to whom we can publish the 114th issue of the International Medicine Review. At the same time, we hope that the approaching 21st International Medical Esperanto Congress will give us the opportunity to present lectures in form of original as well as review articles which would be published in December issue of MIR after the review process. This year, all over the world in many countries the epidemic of COVID-19 caused by the virus SARS-CoV-2 has become a big problem complicating daily life of people. We, as members of the Universal Medical Esperanto Association and scientists of the Jagiellonian University Medical College, have decided to propose the main theme of 21st IMEK, which will be concerned about "COVID-19 pandemic". The final theme of the 21st IMEK was proposed by UMEA President Dr. Christoph Klawe: "Pandemic COVID-19: history, current state and consequences" and for this opportunity we sincerely thank our President for a very good proposal. The 21st IMEK will be held from July 17 to 18 in the city of Hódmezővásárhely (Hungary), where the Organizing Committee of the 21st IMEK under the leadership of Y-therapist Katarina Faragó and with the support of Mayor Dr. Péter Márki Zay will organize the first IMEK online under current conditions. Report about this historic IMEK will be available after the congress in the conference book, which will be freely available to anyone interested.
