EPA, GMA, Ghana Meteorological Agency issues an alert to the General Public


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)



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.
