Comments :
1. The thresholds in the graph have been revised to adopt the new alert levels established by the Ministry of Solidarity and Health: Maximum Alert (30%) and Health Emergency (60%).

2. Due to the time lag between the time of infection and admission to the ICU (about two weeks), Wednesday’s data actually reflects the pandemic situation two to three weeks earlier.
