(ANSA) – ROME, MAR 10 – COVID-19 intensive care cases have
passed the critical threshold of 30% of overall cases, the
National Agency for Regional Health Services (AGENAS) said in a
report updated to March 9.
    At a national level, ICU cases are now 31%, it said.
    This level makes it difficult to treat other patients.
    The percentage was 6% up on March 1 when it was 25%.
    The 30% threshold has been passed in 11 regions: Abruzzo (41%),
Emilia Romagna (40%), Friuli Venezia Giulia (34%), Lombardy
(43%), Marche (44%), Molise (67%), Autonomous Province of
Bolzano (39%), Autonomous Province of Trento (54%), Piedmont
(36%), Tuscany (36%), and Umbria (57%).
    The percentage of COVID patients in other wards was 35%, up 5%
on March 1.
    However, that is below the critical threshold which in this case
is set at 40%.
    Seven regions are above this threshold: Abruzzo (45%), Emilia
Romagna (47%), Lombardy (46%), Marche (54%), Molise (45%),
Piedmont (42%) and Umbria (51%). (ANSA).
