From smog hanging over cities to smoke inside the home, air pollution poses a major threat to health and climate. The combined effects of ambient (outdoor) and household air pollution cause about 7 million premature deaths every year, largely as a result of increased mortality from stroke, heart disease, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease, lung cancer and acute respiratory infections.

Acute effects of air pollution on stroke. Early studies examining severe pollution episodes reported increased mortality from stroke [5,6], although one report found no increase in requests for hospital admission for cerebral haemorrhage [].Whilst pollution levels have reduced substantially, numerous daily time series studies have found associations between current levels of outdoor air.

The team also made estimates for countries, suggesting 27% of coronavirus deaths in China are attributable to air pollution, 26% in Germany, 18% in the US and 14% in the UK.Air pollution occurs when harmful or excessive quantities of substances including gases (such as carbon dioxide, ammonia, carbon monoxide, sulfur dioxide, nitrous oxides, methane and chlorofluorocarbons), particulates (both organic and inorganic), and biological molecules are introduced into Earth's may cause diseases, allergies and even death to humans; it may also.

Air pollution, release into the atmosphere of various gases, finely divided solids, or finely dispersed liquid aerosols at rates that exceed the natural capacity of the environment to dissipate and dilute or absorb them. High concentrations can cause undesirable health, economic, or aesthetic effects.
