It causes serious damage to health of the population, causing problems ranging from sore throat, watery eyes and breathing difficulties in the short term, even chronic asthma, emphysema, lung cancer and disease in the eyes and skin in the long term. Also included are high economic costs that are perceived immediately, in the form of absenteeism , closing of businesses, reduction in tourism, airport delays and accidents, not to mention the emergency measures, expensive and often useless, taken to eliminate fires.
