‘Last week, we released four women aged 53 to 64 and three men aged 45 to 51. One of the latter was in the hospital for almost a month, starting on 15 March. Yesterday, we released two more people: a 43-year-old man and a 73-year-old woman. All of the former patients were tested for the presence of coronavirus in their organisms twice over a period of 24 hours. The results came back negative’, said Maria Włodkowska, University Hospital in Kraków press officer. ‘We’re expecting that we’ll be able to release several more people in the near future’, she added.
