UW Health panel discussion focuses on a year of COVID-19 in Wisconsin

Panel included UW professors as well as member of the Wisconsin State Laboratory of Hygiene

MADISON, Wis. (WKBT) – Health leaders in Madison are looking back on what they have learned about COVID-19 over the past year.

UW Health held a virtual panel discussion Wednesday about what knowledge they have gained about the virus.

The discussion is similar to one held a year ago, when the virus was first detected in the state.

As a new virus, there as been a lot to learn.

“Unknowningly spreading this virus in the community has become really problematic, because it means that we have to wear masks. And masks have been controversial in some communities,” said UW-Madison population health sciences associate professor Ajay Sethi.

The virtual panel included UW professors, as well as the director of of the Wisconsin State Laboratory of Hygiene.
