WHO SAYS 99 PERCENT OF WORLD POPULATION BREATHE POLLUTED AIR

Written by on April 5, 2022

The World Health Organisation has said that a staggering 99 per cent of the global population now breathes air that exceeds the prescribed quality limits, thereby posing serious health dangers for the globe.

These are the latest statistics released by the WHO on Monday ahead of the 2022 World Health Day slated for April 7, 2022.

According to the WHO, a record number of over 6,000 cities in 117 countries are now monitoring air quality, but the people living therein are still breathing unhealthy levels of fine particulate matter and nitrogen dioxide, adding that people in low and middle-income countries are, however, more susceptible to the highest level of exposure.
