Air Pollution 

Much of southern England and parts of Wales are predicted to be hit with either ‘high’ or ‘very high’ levels of air pollution later this week, according to the Department for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs, which could leave people vulnerable to the worst symptoms of coronavirus more exposed.

The forecasts use the Daily Air Quality Index to show complex air quality information on a simple 10 point scale.  Each level has associated health information and advice, so please check the DAQI page for more information. Predicted pollution levels across the whole of the Dover District area are likely to be high on Thursday and very high on Saturday and Sunday. DEFRA’s Health & Wellbeing advice for high/very levels is that adults and children with lung problems, adults with heart problems, older people and those with asthma should reduce/avoid strenuous physical activity particular outdoors. People with asthma may find they need to use their reliever inhaler more often. More detailed advice is available on DEFRA's website.
