Five of those patients are sedated and intubated. The most seriously injured underwent surgery and are now being cared for in the intensive care unit.

Most of the injured are in light to moderate condition.

“At this moment there is no danger of loss of life, but it is too early to know this with certainty,” Saiag said.
