Announcement on the Dust in the Atmosphere of Cyprus

24th of March 2016

 

The Department of Labour Inspection of the Ministry of Labour, Welfare and Social Insurance, announces that today, 24th of March at 17:00 the hourly concentration of respirable particles in ambient air with diameter less than 10 micrometers (PM10), were between the maximum value of 303 μg/m3 and minimum value of 67 μg/m3. Consequently it is expected that the average 24hour concentration will exceed the corresponding limit value of 50 μg/m3 (micrograms per cubic meter), as defined by the relative legislation. Yesterday, Wednesday 23th of March, the average 24hour concentration of respirable particles was between 18 and 30 μg/m3 depending 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, old people and patients) are advised to avoid circulating outdoors and exercising in open spaces during this event.
