Air Quality Deteriorates To Unhealthy Levels In Several Cities In Hungary
The air quality in the cities of Dunaújváros and Kecskemét and the town of Sajószentpéter has deteriorated to unhealthy levels, Hungary’s national environmental health institute (OKI) said.

In several other cities and towns -- in Budapest, Debrecen, Dorog, Miskolc, Nyíregyháza, Sopron, Székesfehérvár, Szolnok and Szombathely, among others -- concentrations of particulate matter (PM10) in the air exceed what is considered to be a safe level, OKI said.

The effects of the air pollution level in these cities can be dangerous for vulnerable groups such as children, people suffering from a chronic illness and the elderly, OKI added.
