Stale internal air; a global health problem
The quality of the air we breathe is the first and primary cause of respiratory diseases. Ventilating our homes by simply opening windows may be a serious mistake if we do not have a good air renewal and purification system. In terms of COVID-19, according to a report published by the European Environmental Agency in October 2020, the quality of the air we breathe is a growing concern in society.
The report warns that most Europeans living in cities are exposed to air pollution levels that exceed the guidelines set by the World Health Organization (WHO) for clean air.
Respiratory problems are a growing concern. Deaths from respiratory illnesses have increased in recent years, even without taking into account the COVID-19 outbreak in 2020. Air pollution poses the greatest threat to health in Europe and the rest of the world. A recent report published in Europe, points out that people play a key role in improving air quality. An on-line tool is available in Europe that allows people in EU countries to see their air quality in real time.
