Why do women suffer from long-COVID more often? According to several studies, women under age 50 are affected by long-COVID more frequently than men. This episode of Science in Minute discusses possible explanations and the different immune response in men and women.

The Science in a Minute project carries on. Promoted by the Swiss School of Public Health, it 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.
