Mexico City Registers Air Seriously Harmful to Health
During the pandemic, it is particularly important to avoid exposure to high levels of contamination, as the lungs are damaged and that leaves people more vulnerable to the effects of Covid-19.
At noon this Friday, December 25th, the Santa Fe monitoring station registered 100 points in the Air Quality Index of the Metropolitan Area of the Valley of Mexico, for which it was classified as regular.

However, the Air and Health Index warns that the condition of the atmosphere is bad and therefore harmful to human health, due to the high concentration levels of suspended particles pm 10 and pm 2.5, the pollutants that cause the most damage to the lungs since, due to their size, they penetrate the most deeply.
