Air Quality In Many Hungarian Cities Worsens
Air quality has deteriorated across Hungary due to a high concentration of airborne particulates, the National Public Health Centre (NNK) has said.

NNK declared air quality to be “dangerous” in Putnok, in northeast Hungary.

Air quality has deteriorated to unhealthy levels in several towns and cities nationwide, including Kazincbarcika, Miskolc, Pécs and Várpalota, NNK said.

Concentrations of particulates are also considered to be too high in the cities of Budapest, Székesfehérvár, Veszprém, Győr, Sopron and other towns, NNK said.

 NNK advised vulnerable groups such as children, people suffering from a chronic illness and the elderly in those cities to spend less time outdoors as no improvement in air quality is likely over the next few days.
