Newsmakers: Dr. Seth Foldy, State Health Officer
Dr. Seth Foldy, Administrator of the State Division of Public Health, joined WisconsinEye Senior Producer Steve Walters for a discussion about the pandemic H1N1 flu. The interview took place at Dr. Foldy’s office in Madison on October 7, 2009. Editor’s Note: On Oct. 8, an aide to Dr. Seth Foldy notified WisconsinEye that the physician misspoke when, during the Oct. 7 interview, he estimated that 35,000 people in Wisconsin die from flu-related causes during a normal flu season. That was the number of flu-related deaths in an average season for the entire United States, according to the aide, Seth Boffeli.
