Air Quality Down to Moderate Levels due to Saharan Dust
Synopsis: The air quality has fallen to moderate levels, as a result of an increase of particulate matters 2.5 and 10, associated with a fresh surge of Saharan Dust. The threat of health problems is elevated, for mainly unusually sensitive people, such as asthmatics. Air quality index: 60 to 90 Alert Level: II Sensitive groups: People with respiratory or heart disease, the elderly and children are the groups most at risk. Health implications: Air quality is acceptable; however, for some pollutants there may be a moderate health concern for a very small number of people who are unusually sensitive to air pollution.
Caution: Active children and adults, and people with respiratory disease, such as asthma, should limit prolonged outdoor exertion.
