What The Drop In Sydney’s Air Quality Means For Your Health
The bushfires that have plagued New South Wales for the past few weeks have done more than just cause physical destruction to many homes, vegetation and wildlife. As a direct result, Sydney has been visited by dense smoke that doesn’t seem to be on the move anytime soon. With an air quality rating lower than that of Beijing, one of the world’s most polluted cities, how can you stay healthy when the air you are breathing is so bad for you?
The Daily was joined by Christine Cowie, Senior Research Fellow At The Centre For Air Pollution, Energy and Health Research at The University of NSW to tell us more about the possible effects of low air quality brought about by bushfire smoke on our health.
