Air quality worsens across Hungary

Air quality has deteriorated across Hungary due to a high concentration of airborne particles, the National Public Health Centre (NNK) said on Saturday.

NNK declared air quality to be “dangerous” in Vac, near Budapest.

Air quality has deteriorated to unhealthy levels in Budapest, Kazincbarcika, Mosonmagyarovar, Nyiregyhaza, Putnok, Sajoszentpeter and Tokol.

Concentrations of particles are also considered to be too high in fifteen other cities and towns, including Debrecen, Miskolc, Salgotarjan, Gyor, Sopron, Szekesfehervar and Szolnok, NNK said.

Forecasts show air quality is expected to improve in most parts of the country.

NNK on Friday advised vulnerable groups such as people suffering from respiratory problems in those cities to spend less time outdoors as the effects of the air pollution level can be dangerous for them.
