The air quality in Prishtina today is average. This is what the data of the US Embassy in Kosovo show for the measurement of air pollution. According to the meters, the pollution index today at 18:00 was 63 AQI.
The “average” AQI is 51 to 100. Air quality is acceptable, however for some polluters there may be average health concerns for a very small number of people. For example, people who are extremely sensitive to ozone may experience respiratory tract problems (symptoms).
The air quality monitor located at the Embassy measures airborne particles in Pristina every hour, including dust, mud, soot, smoke and liquid droplets.
Such particles can be the result of emissions from vehicles and power plants, from the burning of coal or wood, or direct occurrences such as fires at the top and can remain suspended in the air for long periods of time.
Particles of this size, about 1/30 of the average diameter of a human hair, pose the greatest risk to health. Scientific studies have linked long-term particulate pollution, especially from fine particles, to major health problems. as heart and lung disease.
