How To Avoid Respiratory Attacks from the Sandstorm In UAE?

Sandstorm in Dubai and the surrounding UAE region is a serious issue, with no end in sight. By Wednesday evening [17 May 2022], nearly all air quality monitoring stations in Dubai and Abu Dhabi measured dangerously high concentrations of PM10 and PM2.5. PM10 is particle pollution like sand measuring 10 micrometers in diameter. PM2.5 – particles 2.5 micrometers in diameter and the pollutant most harmful to human health – consists of finer particles, such as dust, soot, viruses, and bacteria.

What is a sandstorm?

Sandstorms are a naturally occurring phenomenon in almost all the deserts of the middle east and Northern Africa. Sandstorms usually blow in from other regions and land in the Arabian Gulf, mainly due to prevailing southerly winds. These sandstorms cause several problems in the UAE, including complete loss of visibility, low visibility, and red dust in the atmosphere.

How do sandstorms affect us?

This kind of weather can have serious health effects on people and frequently causes significant damage to machinery and building. Experts say the phenomenon could worsen as climate change warps regional weather patterns and drives desertification.

As frequent sandstorms occur in Dubai, they pose a serious health risk to residents. The dust and particulates that can enter the body cause respiratory infections and other health problems. The storms frequently disrupt air traffic, causing delays. These storms also damage buildings and machinery.

But there are still other ways these sandstorms can be dealt with — such as air filtration system solutions from American Air Filter (AAF)
