class Solution:
    def minMeetingRooms(self, intervals: List[List[int]]) -> int:
        if not intervals:
            return 0
        
        free_rooms = []
        
        intervals = sorted(intervals, key=lambda interval: interval[0])

        heapq.heappush(free_rooms, intervals[0][1])
        
        for interval in intervals[1:]:
            if free_rooms[0] <= interval[0]:
                heapq.heappop(free_rooms)
                
            heapq.heappush(free_rooms, interval[1])
            
        
        return len(free_rooms)
