Question-and-Answer Session

Q - Joshua Jennings

If I may, I think investors are -- everyone's very keen on learning some updates or any updates that can be provided on elective procedure trends and anything specific that your team is willing to share, just with the COVID surges continuing into January and February, I think that's well known across the board.

But is there any updates, just in general, in kind of Stryker's elective procedure trends in the last two months? You guys updated us on the fourth quarter earnings call, I think in late January, so I guess, just in the month of February.

Preston Wells

Sure. So Josh, as we had talked about in our call, our earnings call, certainly, we did expect some of that disruption that we had in the fourth quarter to continue into January, February. And of course, as you said, we did see that.

And what we are seeing though is that the trends are starting to improve. I think as we talked about that as well, the hospitalization rates, the infection rates are really key
