Increased dust levels in the atmosphere

The department of labour inspection warned on Thursday of increased dust levels in the atmosphere.

According to an announcement, the average hourly concentration of dust particles in the atmosphere was increased and ranged between 60 and 114 μ g / m 3 (microgrammes per cubic metre). “It is therefore expected that the average 24-hour price is likely to exceed the corresponding limit value of 50 μ g / m 3 which is fixed under the relevant legislation,” it said.

“Due to the small size of particles and the possible negative effects on human health, members of the public, particularly vulnerable population groups – children, the elderly and patients – are advised to avoid spending time outside until the  phenomenon subsides”, the announcement said.
