“current change in weather/atmosphere isn’t harmattan, rather an extreme air pollution with dire consequences on human health” ~ EPA.

Information from EPA (Environmental Protection Agency), GMA/GMet (Ghana Meteorological Agency) and GHS (Ghana Health Service) is that the current change in weather/atmosphere across the country is not harmattan, but rather an extreme form of air pollution with dire consequences on human health.

This can be hazardous and lead to:

1. Reduced Lung function.
2. Respiratory infection
3. Inflammation
4. Oxidative Stress (low level of antioxidants which creates an imbalance in your body)
Etc.

Consequently, everyone is being advised to:

-Mask-up (wear nose mask)
-Stay hydrated (Drink more water)
-Cover food and water very well to prevent dust from settling on them.
-Wash fruits very well before eating them.
-And stay indoors as much as possible.

This condition may prevail for a considerable period.

Therefore, let’s take note and adhere and keep our families and friends informed.

Thank you.
