New Warning of “Dangerous & Unhealthy" Air Quality in Hungary
Air quality due to pollution is deteriorating in several cities and towns in Hungary, the National Centre for Public Health (NNK) said.

Air quality is in the “dangerous” category in Putnok and is considered unhealthy in Ajka, Győr and Sajószentpéter, NNK said in a statement.

Air quality was deemed poor in twelve other localities, it added.

The current cold and dry weather makes it unlikely that the situation will improve in the coming days, they added.

NNK warned that the high concentration of particulate matter in the air can cause eye and respiratory irritation.
