Macedonian citizens in Skopje advised to stay indoors due to high pollution index


SKOPJE, Dec. 4 (Xinhua) -- The Ministry of Environment and Physical Planning in Macedonia issued a health advisory on Tuesday to recommend citizens in the capital city of Skopje to stay indoors and reduce pollution exposure due to the latest readings exceeding 200 on air quality index (AQI) scale in the last two days.

According to the Ministry of Environment and Physical Planning, the latest readings in the monitoring stations show that the pollution level in Skopje ranges from 256 to 163 scale in different areas.

The health advisory was based on pollution indexes reaching the 200 limit at two monitoring stations in two subsequent days.

201-300 AQI levels are considered very unhealthy, warranting health warnings of emergency conditions.
