Chief Medical Officer: Budapest to spend as much outdoor time as possible


Air pollution continues to be high, and air quality has been considered as unhealthy in the capital due to the high dust concentration.

On the medical director's Facebook page on Saturday, he wrote: The unhealthy air quality in Budapest, Kecskemét and Nyíregyháza. In addition, the medical status of the 15 settlements: Debrecen, Dunaújváros, Eger, Hernádszurdok, Miskolc, Pécs, Putnok, Sajószentpéter, Szeged, Szolnok, Szombathely, Tököl, Vác, Várpalota and Veszprém. In the other air-monitored area air concentrations of small aerosol particles were close to the limit of health.

It has also been pointed out that, in some places, the concentration of nitrogen dioxide exceeds the limit of health. As it was written: Like small aerosol particles, nitrogen dioxide can also reduce pulmonary function and can lead to respiratory symptoms.

The National Public Health Center recommends this

the use of correct heating modes is preferable to public transport. For the vulnerable population, it is advisable to spend as much outdoor time as possible in order to avoid active physical exercise and physical activity in the open air.

The health assessment of air pollution is based on an index. OKI distinguishes four levels according to the most harmful health effects of atmospheric pollutants: blue (acceptable), green (obtuse), orange (unhealthy), red (dangerous). Local governments can order information or smoke alert status in the last two categories.

In Miskolc on Friday, the level of smoke detector information was triggered on Saturday in Nyíregyháza. (MTI)
