The data that continues to be most worrying is the increase in hospitalizations, which now stand at 1,103, two more than yesterday. There are now 204 seriously ill patients in the ICU, thirteen more than the day before. During the last seven days (between October 7 and 13), Catalan hospitals have admitted 129 people to ICUs, the highest number in this second wave of the epidemic, and a total of 109 people have so far died.
