AIR QUALITY IN NORTH-EASTERN PARTS 'DANGEROUS'

 

Air quality due to pollution is “dangerous” in three settlements in Borsod-Abaúj-Zemplén County, in north-eastern Hungary, and in Várpalota in Veszprém County, north-west of Lake Balaton, the National Centre for Public Health (NNK) said on Friday. Meanwhile, in Miskolc, Salgótarján and Pécs air quality is in the “unhealthy” category. Poor air quality (the category above “unhealthy”) affects Szombathely, Győr, Tatabánya, Veszprém, Székesfehérvár, Dunaújváros, Százhalombatta, Tököl, Budapest, Vác, Kecskemét, Debrecen and Nyíregyháza. Air quality is likely to worsen in the northern counties, the statement added.
