The level of dust in the atmosphere rises year by year. Moldova’s biggest cities – Chisinau and Balti – are the most polluted localities. Only in Chisinau the level of the dust in the atmosphere is 13% more than 4 years ago.
Specialists explain the phenomenon by the car emissions and by the particles getting away from used tires and brakes. In addition, the sewage system functions poorly and the dirt from courtyards flows on roads.
This can be a cause to numerous pulmonary diseases, doctors warn.
They recommend to wash the streets and roads at least once a day.
The practice in Chişinău is however to do so only when it’s too hot.
