Introduction: Influenza and COVID-19 are high transmission pathologies which have a different median incubation period. Although the symptoms are similar, people are more likely to be affected by severe and/or critical COVID-19 infection than severe and/or critical influenza infection. It is well proven that school closure and personal protection measures (mask-wearing and social distancing) are effective in reducing the spread of infection. This study aims to highlight the impact of 2020-21 seasonal influenza on the Italian population during the COVID-19 pandemic and to identify possible reasons for that. Materials and methods: To describe the impact of influenza on the population, data from the Integrated Influence Surveillance InfluNet and vaccination coverage in Italy in the 2020-21 season were used. Influenza Like Illness (ILI) incidence rates per thousand patients and influenza vaccination coverage (%) were calculated on the total population and by age group.

The pandemic crisis is upsetting the world. In this dramatically new world, medical science must face an unknown and particularly insidious epidemiological risk. But does a criminal risk also lie with the doctors facing the Coronavirus risk? And, in this age opened by the Covid-19, what should be the “future” of professional medical liability in criminal law? And what response should the legal system give to changes in the epistemological statute of medicine? © 2021 Pisa University Press. All rights reserved.

Italy was the first country in Europe to face the coronavirus pandemic. The aim of the study was to analyze healthcare workers' (HCWs) level of information, practice, and risk perception towards COVID-19. We set up a cross-sectional study through SurveyMonkey<sup> R</sup> and distributed the link through Facebook and Whatsapp closed groups. The research instrument was a 31 items questionnaire distributed using Facebook and Whatsapp. It was conducted in Italy from February to May 2020. The study participants were general practitioners, pediatricians and other health professionals. A total of 958 participants were included: 320 (33.4%) general practitioners, 248 (25.9%) pediatricians and 390 (40.7%) other health professionals. The highest response rate was from Northern Italy (48.1%), followed by Central Italy (29.9%) and Southern Italy (22.0%). Less than a half (46%) of respondents felt they had a good level of information of COVID-19 case definition and of national prevention guidelines. Respondents reported to have changed their clinical practice;particularly, they increased the use of masks (87.1%, p < 0.001), disinfection and sanitization of doctors' offices (75.8%, p < 0.001), the use of protective glasses (71.2%, p < 0.001), alcoholic hand solution (71.2%, p < 0.001), and hand washing (31.8%, p = 0.028). HCWs are at high risk of infection;less than a half of them felt adequately prepared to face COVID-19 pandemic, so they need extensive information and awareness of the disease to take adequate precautionary measures, and they are crucial to disseminate good practices.
