Increased air pollution in Skopje yet again


A high level of PM10 particles in the air was registered last night in the capital. At some of the measuring stations in Skopje, air pollution reached over 260 PM10 particles.

For a week now, there has been a trend of increasing level of PM particles in the air, and this was confirmed by the Ministry of Environment. Air pollution is highest in Lisiche, but there are high concentrations of PM for several days in other municipalities, as well.

Photos are circulating on social media showing the increase of air pollution during the night. Citizens also comment that there is an intense bad smell.

Pulmonologists warn that air pollution is not only a great danger in itself but also further facilitates the viruses’ way to the lungs.
