Hidden dangers on ‘still’ days
During periods of high air pollution adults & children with lung problems, and adults with heart problems, should reduce strenuous physical exertion, particularly outdoors, and particularly if they experience symptoms.  People with asthma may find they need to use their reliever inhaler more often.  Older people should also reduce physical exertion.  Anyone experiencing discomfort such as sore eyes, cough or sore throat should consider reducing activity, particularly outdoors.
