In times of pandemic, we often hear about immunity. But what does it mean, and how does one become immune? Dr Rebecca Amati, project manager of the project Corona Immunitas Ticino, answers these questions. Starting from the meaning of this important concept, she explains that not all antibodies are equal. 

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.
