On the morning of Friday, March 1, the level of air pollution in Kyiv rose sharply, with the content of particulate matter (dust) PM2.5 and PM10 rising to harmful levels.

The probable cause of the pollution is fires in the region and very low wind speeds, the press service of the Kyiv City State Administration reports.

  • limit being outside;

Earlier, EcoPolitic wrote, that in Kyiv from April 13, 2022, you can monitor air quality through the "Kyiv Digital" application, which shows data from all 46 city air monitoring points.

Previously, EcoPolitic analyzed the methods of formation of PM2.5 dust, its danger and methods of combating air pollution. Thanks to anthropogenic influence, more than 99.9% of people on the planet breathe air with an excessive content of solid particles PM2.5, which negatively affect health and cause thousands of premature deaths every year.
