Brigham and Women’s Hospital (BWH) is treating 31 patients, five of whom are in critical condition, from yesterday’s Boston Marathon bombing, according to BWH spokesperson Tom Langford.

Langford said the hospital is currently open to all patients and visitors.

The hospital was in lockdown yesterday with a large security presence amid reports of a “person of interest” in the case being treated at the hospital. Authorities recently said the victim in question is no longer a person of interest.
