“From what I understand there is currently one admission, but not intensive care. We haven’t had serious admissions. I think the last I.C.U. admission; if you give me a little chance, I can get back to you on that because I do have my data in that regard. But I must tell you that we haven’t had any recent I.C.U. admission due to COVID.”
