Serbia’s Prime Minister Ana Brnabic called an urgent Government session on Wednesday because of the alarming situation with air pollution in Serbia, the state RTS TV reported.

Some media reported that the ministers of environment, health, energy and internal affairs, as well as the representatives of the Environmental Protection Agency and the Republic’s Hydro-Meteorologist Institute (RHMZ) would take part in the meeting scheduled for 3 pm.

Earlier,  the City’s Institution for Public Health published on the official ‘Beoeko’ website, the air quality in Belgrade at 9 am on Wednesday was “acceptable,” while the specialised application AirVisual described the air in Serbia’s capital as “unhealthy,” N1 reported.

Belgrade and some other cities and towns in Serbia have been among the worst polluted places on earth in the last weeks.

The AirVisual said on Wednesday the concentration of PM2.5 particles was 110 micro gramme per cubic metre, adding that made Belgrade the fifth most polluted cities in the world at 8 am on Wednesday.
