Swiss Medical Weekly, a Public Service Open Access journal, has been tracking progress in health science since 150 years.

With COVID transforming the world in profound and unexpected ways, Swiss Medical Weekly has hosted expert panels on important but controversial topics around the pandemic. Here, we will explore the science of humidity and its impact on viruses, their hosts, and human well-being. A panel of biologists, physicians and engineers will discuss the cost, the benefits and the knowledge gaps related to air humidity in human environments and the transmission of SARS-CoV-2.
