The amount of suspended PM2.5 particles was 444 micrograms per cubic meter in New Belgrade alone, while acceptable quality is estimated to be from 50 to 100 micrograms per cubic meter, while the high-risk air is between 301 and 500 levels.
It was no better in the Old City around 7 this morning (426), Mostar (361), while the measuring stations in Vracar and ZelenoBrdoo showed good parameters. However, as the day goes by, the level of pollution is expected to oscillate.
Suspended particles are most commonly aerosols, smoke, pollution or ash.
Polluting particles are created by the active industry, cars, and over 100,000 Belgrade fireplaces, and the fog that still surrounds some parts of the city prevents these harmful substances from dissolving in the air.
These particles can have a great impact on our health, and special care is advised for people with asthma, heart problems or lung diseases.
Since the rise of temperature is expected for tomorrow and during the weekend, and strong wind, the air should be cleaner and even of good quality on Saturday.
To recall, the air in Belgrade was on the fourth place yesterday for worst air quality on the planed. Another country found its place on the list today, Macedonia, whose capital Skopje was on number 10. Beijing is not even in the top 10.
