99% of people in the world breathe in polluted air; World Health Organization report

As many as 99% of the world's population inhales contaminated air, increasing the levels of harmful particulate matter and nitrogen dioxide in the human body. On World Health Day (April 7), the World Health Organization (WHO) warned of far-reaching effects on human health.

The World Health Organization (WHO) has emphasized the need for concrete measures at the global level to reduce air pollution in the future. The World Health Organization (WHO) has said that the level of nitrogen dioxide in the air released from pollution caused by increasing fuel consumption in urban areas exceeds the danger level. Due to the ability of these tiny particles in the air to mix with the bloodstream, there is an increase in cardiovascular disorders, cerebrovascular (similar to paralysis), and respiratory diseases.

At present, about 6,000 cities worldwide are monitoring air quality. Still, the World Health Organization (WHO) has stated an urgent need to take immediate action to increase air quality and prevent air pollution.
