Points of view. The points of view addressed in the article refer to those of two health professionals, a general practitioner and a psychiatrist-psychotherapist, and to that of the virus that has been raging in the world since the beginning of 2020. Both in the narrative part (the voice of the virus) and in the reflections conducted by the two doctors it ranges "between secular and professional topics". Secular is the point of view of the virus and of those who fall ill because of it, but also of common citizens who read the newspapers and are immersed in the media barrage. It is a pandemic, better a syndemic, but also an infodemic. Professional are the reflections that doctors conduct from their specific daily observatory: territorial surgeries, as always, forgotten places far from the limelight enjoyed by intensive care and hospitals in general with their heroes; dirty and muddy trenches where one fight the enemy whit the nude hands, and at times, one runs away and one hides. All the reflections and points of view intertwine and mix, without a precise boundary between secular and professional, in a climate of perplexity and uncertainty that at times becomes suffering for a humanity that trudges and perhaps finds it hard to learn from mistakes and ignores the lessons from the past even the most recent.

Keywords: Virus, anxiety, culture, work, syndemic diseases, isolation, lockdown, consumption, inequalities, health dictatorship, general medicine, mutation of the clinical method.
