Covid, here is who risks Christmas in the orange zone. Half Italy in yellow during the holidays – Il Tempo

Although the contagion situation is not as alarming as last year, where we spent the Christmas holidays with heavy limitations and daily movements possible only with the dropper, also this year in Italy someone will not spend the holidays without thinking about Covid. The trend in hospital admissions in ordinary wards and in intensive care signals an increase and according to reports from La Stampa at least half of Italy is destined to pass into the yellow zone in the next few days.

According to Agenas data updated to last night, nine regions are ready to leave white before December 25: Calabria, Friuli-Venezia Giulia, Lazio, Liguria, Lombardy, Marche, Alto Adige, Trentino and Veneto. These territories are all beyond the first guard threshold of 10% of beds occupied in intensive care and are one step away from the threshold of 15% of beds occupied in ordinary wards, two factors that involve the passage in the yellow zone. Experts predict that the thresholds will be reached in one to two weeks. Even for Friuli, already in yellow, the spectrum is that of the orange area due to the Covid numbers: 16% of the beds in intensive care and 24% of those in the ordinary area are occupied by patients who have contracted the virus.

What changes in the orange zone? In this range of color nothing changes for vaccinated and cured, while for the unvaccinated there is a ban not to move from their municipality except for urgent reasons. All the activities remain open, as in the yellow one (the only difference from the white one is the introduction of the obligation to wear an outdoor mask, there is not even the closure of the discos), but only those with the super green pass will be able to access it. With this color, therefore, the ‘basic’ green pass, which is obtained with the pad, will no longer give access to gyms and swimming pools.
