The Senior World Health Organization (WHO) official in Serbia Marijan Ivanusa said on Monday that some 3,600 people die from the consequences of air pollution in the country every year.

Ivanusa told the Serbian state TV (RTS) that air pollution affects people with cardiovascular and lung ailments in some way depending on the level of air pollution and length of exposure.

According to WHO data, some seven million people die of pollution every year across the world, including half a million in Europe. Ivanusa said that regular measurements have to be conducted to inform the public about air pollution levels.

Air pollution levels across Serbia were high over the weekend, especially in Belgrade, Novi Sad, Subotica, Nis and Valjevo with experts saying that the weather contributed to the high pollution levels.

The RTS said that the air in Belgrade was highly polluted on Monday.
