The Ghana Meteorological Agency (GMet) is advising Ghanaians to consider wearing nose masks due to the recent surge in air pollution in the country. GMet warns that Ghana’s airspace is polluted and is cautioning citizens to wear protective nose gear to stay safe. Recently, Ghana was ranked as the most polluted country by the Air Quality Index.

Felicity Ahianyo, the Head of the Central Analysis and Forecasting Unit of the Ghana Meteorological Agency, has advised citizens to wear nose masks to avoid contracting diseases from the dusty environment.

“You can even see the dust settling on cars, buildings, and any other thing, so it becomes very visible to us, and since it is coming from the bare floor, it will definitely have some pathogens, parasites, or disease-causing agents that may be dangerous to our health.”
