    BackgroundThere is ample evidence that COVID-19 is significantly less severe in children TRANS than in adults TRANS and  asthma and allergy HP, the most common chronic disorders in children TRANS, are not included in the top 10 comorbidities related to COVID-19 fatalities. Nevertheless,  concerns about asthma HP and allergy HP are still high.. In order to evaluate the impact of paediatric COVID-19 among Italian paediatricians, we sent a 20-questions anonymous internet-based survey to 250 Italian paediatricians with particular address to allergic symptoms and those affecting the upper airwaysMethodsThe questionnaire was conceived and pretested in April 2020, by a working group of experts of the Italian Paediatric Society for Allergy HP and Immunology (SIAIP), and structured into different sections of 20 categorized and multiple choice questions. The first part included questions about epidemiological data follows by a second part assessing the way to manage a suspected COVID-19 infection and personal experiences about that. The third part concerned questions about patients’ clinical characteristics and clinical manifestations.The survey was emailed once between April and mid-May 2020. ResultsA total 99 participants had participated in our survey and provided responses to our electronic questionnaire. The distribution of patients reported per month varies significantly according to the geographical area (P=0.02). Data confirmed that in the North part of Italy the rate of patients referred is higher than in the rest of Italy. Almost all respondents (98%) reported caring for up to a maximum of 10 infected children TRANS and the last 2% more than twenty. Among these patients, according to the 75% of responders, a maximum rate of 20% were affected by allergic rhino- conjunctivitis HP and in particular in the North of Italy while in the Centre and in the South there was a higher incidence (P=0.09). Almost the same applies for asthma HP, 83% of responders declared that up to a maximum of 20% of affected children TRANS were asthmatic, from 20% to 40% for the 13,5% of responders and from 40% to 60% for the last 3,5%. As for the allergic conjunctivitis HP also for asthma HP, we found a higher incidence in the Centre and in South than in the North (P=0.03).
