Dust levels at certain times can be very high and definitely a problem for the young, the elderly and anyone with respiratory problems. As Veronica has said, you will find that dust gets everywhere indoors - very hard to prevent. However, itís not all bad, and when it is, the local press gives ample warnings. Itís not difficult to see the effect for yourself. When the mountains seem hazy, itís more often than not due to dust. We also suffer from various Coptic storms with airborne sand/dust from the Sahara being Ďdumpedí here.
Although not asthmatic or suffering any particular respiratory problem, I do find that when dust levels are high, I have problems. The good news is that, of course, we are talking about a few days out of the entire year.
