Several Hungarian cities hit by poor air quality

Several Hungarian towns and cities are hit by poor air quality due to a high concentration of airborne dust particles, the National Public Health Centre (NNK) said on Monday.

The air quality in Budapest, Szeged, Szekesfehervar and Szolnok has deteriorated to unhealthy levels, NNK said in a statement.

Concentrations of particulate matter are also considered to be too high in the cities of Gyor, Debrecen, Miskolc and Nyiregyhaza and in a dozen 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.
