Cisco CEO Chuck Robbins told CNBC on Tuesday that the company’s video conferencing platform Webex saw a surge in user activity since the beginning of the month due to the coronavirus pandemic. 

“In the first 11 business days of March, we’ve had 5.5 billion meeting minutes,” Robbins said on “Squawk on the Street.” “Yesterday we held 3.2 million meetings globally on Webex, and that doesn’t include one on ones. Those are multi-individual meetings.”

Companies are shifting operations online in a bid to slow COVID-19. In the United States, at least 4,661 coronavirus cases have been confirmed and at least 85 people have died, according to Johns Hopkins University.
