More and more people have antibodies against the coronavirus. This episode talks about how seroprevalence has increased significantly across Switzerland and the differences between west-east and north-south have decreased with vaccination, as shown by the results of the fourth phase of serologic testing in the Corona Immunitas study.

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.
