Coronavirus barometer

As of 23 May 2022, the coronavirus barometer no longer applies.

What does code yellow, orange, red mean?

The coronavirus barometer has three phases that reflect the level of pressure on healthcare:

  • Code yellow: the epidemiological situation and pressure on hospitals are under control
    • New hospital admissions/day: less than 65, intensive care occupancy: less than 300 beds.
    • The trend of the numbers should be taken into consideration each time in order to possibly change phases more quickly in one direction or the other.
  • Code orange: increasing pressure on healthcare system, intervention needed to reverse this trend
    • New hospital admissions/day: 65-149, intensive care occupancy: 300-500 beds.
    • The trend of the numbers should be taken into consideration each time in order to possibly change phases more quickly in one direction or the other.
  • Code red: high risk of overburdening the healthcare system
    • New hospital admissions/day: more than 150, intensive care occupancy: more than 500 beds.
    • The trend of the numbers should be taken into consideration each time in order to possibly change phases more quickly in one direction or the other.

In addition to the pressures on healthcare, the Consultative Committee will make an overall assessment of the epidemiological situation and pay specific attention to mental health when determining the code.
