In Europe 12.9%, infants die due to respiratory diseases. Data for Slovenia show that in 2017, 6.7% of all infants aged 28-364 days died due to respiratory diseases. In 2014 and 2015 in Slovenia, no new-borns died due to respiratory diseases. Studies have shown a very complicated link between level of air pollution and infant mortality due to respiratory diseases, mainly due to various external factors (allergens, cigarette smoke, diet, and lifestyle).
