Announcement on the Dust in the Atmosphere of Cyprus

1st of May 2018

 

The Department of Labour Inspection of the Ministry of Labour, Welfare and Social Insurance, announces that today,1st of May 2018at19:00the hourly concentration of respirable particles in ambient air with diameter less than 10 micrometers (PM10), were between the maximum value of82μg/m3and minimum value of45μg/m3 (micrograms per cubic meter). Consequently it is expected that the average 24hour concentration will exceed the corresponding limit value of50 μg/m3 as defined by the relative legislation. Yesterday,Monday, 30th of April 2018,the average 24hour concentration of respirable particles was between27and52μg/m3depending on the location.

 

Because of the small size of the respirable particles and their negative effect on human health, the public and especially the vulnerable groups of population (children, older people, and patients) are advised to avoid outdoor activities and exercising in open spaces during this event.

 

More information on the measured pollutant concentrations is available online through the dedicated website maintained by DLI at www.airquality.gov.cy, and also through the free application “Air Quality Cyprus” on the Google Play and iOS App Store.
