Air quality not alarming in Belgrade Izvor: N1

Air quality in the Serbian capital was bad but not alarming over the past few days, an expert at the Belgrade Public Health Department told N1.

Chemist Ander Sostaric said that the weather caused a drop in air quality but added that the concentrations of pollutants were not alarming. “The quality of the air is at the same level as in other European cities,” he said.  

Rumors have spread on social networks over the past few days that large concentrations of hazardous particles had been registered in the air in Belgrade over the past few days and that the authorities were allegedly keeping that secret.  

Sostaric said that measurements have shown that there is no reason for panic. “The quality of the air in Belgrade was bad because of the weather in the past few days but the concentration of pollutants are not a cause for concern,” he said.  

According to him, the quality of the air in Belgrade improved on Tuesday mainly thanks to wind and rain. He said that it’s normal for air quality to deteriorate in the city every winter because of heating and weather along with traffic. Sostaric said that pollution is higher in the evenings.
