The General Directorate of Meteorology announced that dust transport from Syria and Iraq is expected. In the statement, which stated that a decrease in air quality and visibility is expected with dust transport, especially in the southern parts of Sanliurfa and Mardin, it was asked to be careful and cautious against negativities such as mud.

Professor of Chest Diseases, Dicle University Faculty of Medicine. Dr. Abdurrahman Şenyiğit warned that the dust storm, which will be effective from today, may cause serious health problems other than causing pollution in rainy areas.

Prof. Dr. Şenyiğit, “the Sahara is expected to contain Turkey, the effect of dust storms from the desert. Is expected to rain the same time. Therefore, it rained when these dust storms will unfortunately spread the mud on the earth. Also health outside pollution, creating in this case the car and in certain places In places where it rains, it may be thought that this dust goes down with rain and its effect passes, but it is not. I think that staying at home for at least 1-2 days after rain, even if it is clear, will reduce the effect of dust cloud even more in snowfall, but this does not mean that this is harmless. With the cold weather caused by the snow, even if the dust storm decreases, the patients will have an effect on you. Patients should be careful in the same way, “he said.


Prof. Dr. Şenyiğit said that especially those with COPD, asthma, respiratory disease and allergies should not open doors and windows. Stating that their own diseases can be triggered by dust entering the lungs, Şenyiğit said, “When there is dust storm in places where there is no rain, the degree of this is very important, especially if it is too dense, the effect on health is higher, and less dust movement can cause less damage to health. Especially people with asthma, COPD, respiratory disease and allergic diseases need to be very careful. If this dust enters the lungs through the nose or mouth, their own diseases can be triggered. Do not go out, do not be fooled by the beauty of the weather, because your illness can be triggered and you can have an attack. Staying at home is of great benefit. In places where there is a lot of dust, you should definitely not go out, doors should be closed, windows should be closed and ventilation should not be done.
