What is an antigen test? What are its advantages and disadvantages? In this new episode of Science in a Minute, the so-called rapid test procedure is explained. This test detects the presence of proteins of the new coronavirus in the nose and/or throat.

The Science in a Minute project, promoted by the Swiss School of Public Health, aims to provide, through a series of short videos, some of the answers to the most frequently asked questions about scientific facts and topics related to public health in order to make them clear and accessible to everyone.

 

Dr Rebecca Amati, project manager of the Corona Immunitas Ticino project, guides us on this path, explaining complex concepts and processes in layman's terms. The series is constantly updated according to the evolution of the pandemic. A weekly one-minute clip tackling a different topic will be available.

Watch the video! (in Italian, with French and German available on the dedicated YouTube channel)
