Red sticker for Italy. The air in our country is among the worst in all of Europe. Not only in the Po Valley, the area with the worst air quality, but also around the big cities in central and southern Italy, smog conditions are returning due to an increase in fine particles.
It is not a little, there is a lot health risks; The continuation of high pressure for several days without noticeable winds and rain causes long-term damage. to’from (Global Health Organization) clearly confirmed that it causes more deaths than Covid, in a study comparing deaths from pandemic-related causes with those likely caused bypollution. Recent studies conducted by the World Health Organization and the European Union (https://www.eea.europa.eu/it/pressroom/newsreleases/many-European-citizens-are-still/premature-deaths-attributable-to-air-pollution) highlighted that in Europe at least 450 thousand premature deaths can be linked Smog and pollutantsAt least one of them 80-90 thousand in Italy alone And are largely related to PM10 or even more fine PM2.5 particles. In short, the data is terrible.
Nothing has been done to solve this problem either in Milan, in the rest of Lombardy or in other Italian regions: In fact, pollution affects all major cities and urban agglomerations Important. “between regions”worst“With regard to air quality, we find, of course Po Valley Which, due to its geographical configuration, which makes it “closed” between the Alpine and Apennine mountain ranges, can easily encounter severe pollution situations in urban areas, due to poor ventilation and poor mixing of the atmosphere near the ground.
Indeed these days Air quality is polluted or highly polluted (Attached map) Thanks to the unfavorable weather conditions expected, especially during the weekend, with the intensification of high pressure (the return of the low air pressure) the foglack of wind), the situation may worsen further.
