    Objective: Obesity might be a risk factor for patients with Coronavirus disease-19 (COVID-19). We aimed to investigate the association of the obesity with intensive care need and mortality caused by severe acute respiratory syndrome-CoV-2 (SARS-CoV-2) infection in this retrospective cohort. Methods: Between March 11th and May 1st, 135 patients, who were treated in our clinic, were enrolled in the study. Body mass index (BMIs) of the patients were grouped according as WHO criteria (<25 kg/m(2): normal, 25 30 kg/m(2): overweight, >30 kg/m(2): obese). Results: Of our patients, 34.1% (n=46) were obese. Mean BM! of the mortality group was 31.2 kg/m(2) and was not different from that of the survivors (p=0.09), However, mean BMI of the patients, in whom intensive care was needed, teas 31.2 kg/m(2) and higher than that of those intensive care was nut needed (p=0.04). In subgroup analyses, obesity (BMI >31) kg/m(2)) was more common among mortality group versus survivors in males older than 60 years old (p=0.03). Conclusion: Obesity with associated disorders are negative prognostic factors for COVID-19 and should be tackled as the end of the pandemic is obscure.

    Objective: Viral pneumonia cases occur quite frequently in the community. The rate of viral infections in community-acquired pneumonia is about 25%. severe acute respiratory syndrome coronas i rus-2 (SARS-CoV-2) and influenza are also viruses that can cause pneumonia. In this study. we aimed to determine the rate of influenza co-infection in Coronavirus disease-19 (COVID-19) Cases. Methods: The data of adult patients who applied to Bezmialem Vakif University Hospital between March 6, 2020, and May 21, 2020, which were positive with the SARS-CoV-2 polymerase chain reaction (PCR) test and influenza antigen test were retrospectively scanned from the hospital automation system. Results: SARS-CoV-2 PCR test was found positive in 498 adult patients who applied to our hospital. Two hundrend-sixty of these patients were hospitalized and 238 were followed up on an outpatient basis. In 88 patients SARS-CoV-2 PCR and influenza antigen were studied, and 6 of them had positive influenza antigen. COVID-19 and influenza co- i n feet ion was not detected. Conclusion: In order to determine the exact rate of influenza and COVID-19 co-infection, it is necessary to evaluate the patients who applied with the appropriate clinical picture from the beginning of the seasonal influenza period by using reverse transcription-PCR fur these two viral infections, if possible. Further research is needed in this area.

    Aim: Influenza vaccination is the most effective method in prevention of influenza disease and its complications. Our study aimed to investigate the rates of vaccination and the behaviours and attitudes against the vaccine in healthcare workers in Turkey. Methods: This multicentre national survey is a descriptive study in which 12 475 healthcare workers. Healthcare workers were asked to answer the questionnaire consisting of 12 questions via the survey. Results: It was found that 6.7% of the healthcare workers regularly got vaccinated each year and that 55% had never had the influenza vaccine before. The biggest obstacle against getting vaccinated was determined as not believing in the necessity of the vaccine (53.1%). Conclusion: The rates of influenza vaccination in healthcare workers in Turkey are quite low. False knowledge and attitudes on the vaccine and disease are seen as the most important reasons to decline vaccination. It is important to detect reasons for anti-vaccination and set a course in order to increase the rates of vaccination.
