Agenas data updated Region by Region: if the situation of hospitalization in intensive care and medical area worsens further, some regions could end up in the red zone.
From Monday 24 January Italy has colored a little more orange. With the last order signed by Minister Speranza after the indications arrived from the monitoring of the Higher Institute of Health, Abruzzo, Friuli Venezia Giulia, Piedmont and Sicily became the orange zone due to the exceeding of the established parameters of 20% of the beds occupied by Covid patients in intensive care and 30% in the medical area. Furthermore, again from Monday Puglia and Sardinia became the yellow zone (changing color from white): both Regions exceeded the 10% ceiling in intensive care and 15% in the medical area. From this week, therefore, most of the Italian regions are in the yellow zone, one group is in the orange zone and less and less in the white zone. For the moment, however, we do not yet have regions in the red zone, but let’s see which are the latest give Agenas on the occupation of Covid intensive care and medical areas and therefore who still risks changing color. In fact, we know that the color band depends on the filling percentages of hospital wards and also on the incidence which, however, has been out of control practically everywhere for weeks already due to the Omicron variant. As for the colors, the transition to the yellow zone occurs when 10% and 15% of admissions to the intensive care and medical area are exceeded, respectively, in the orange zone 20% and 30%, in the red zone 30% and 40%.

Who risks changing color
There are currently only three regions left in the white zone: Basilicata, Molise and Umbria. The latter has data on admissions that are now close to yellow (9-29). Worsening values according to Agenas data for Emilia Romagna (17-29) which is approaching the orange zone. Lazio would already be orange looking at the hospital data (21-32) and Liguria and Marche also risk a color change. Tuscany, currently in yellow, has values for both medical and intensive care areas that go towards orange. For a possible passage in the red zone, Valle d’Aosta is still at risk, with 57% (up by 4 percentage points) in the medical area. For intensive care, the percentage employed is currently 21%. Even Calabria and Liguria, only as regards the occupation of the departments, are on the edge of the red zone.
