About 100 percent of the world’s people breathe in polluted air

The World Health Organization (WHO) said on Monday that 99 percent of the world’s people breathe in highly polluted air. The company blames poor air quality for the deaths of millions of people worldwide each year.

New data from the United Nations Health Organization shows that every corner of the globe is being tackled with air pollution. But more evident in poor countries.

Maria Neira, the agency’s director of environment, climate change and health, told reporters that about 100 percent of the world’s population now breathes air that exceeds World Health Organization recommendations.

In a report four years ago, the WHO reported that more than 90 percent of the world’s population was affected by air pollution. The World Health Organization (WHO) says the number has now exceeded that level.

The WHO also said that there was evidence that the damage caused by air pollution was increasing rapidly. And this damage indicates that air pollution has reached a low point.

Although UN data showed last year, air quality had risen slightly for a short time due to lockdowns and travel bans on the Corona epidemic. However, air pollution remains a major problem, according to the WHO.
