In Slovenia 47% of children were exposed to concentrations of 21-30 µg PM10/m3, and 53% to concentrations of 31-40 µg/m3. In Europe, most children live in an environment where PM10 concentrations are below 30 µg/m3. It is a worrying fact that in Slovenia in 2018 about 2% of children were exposed to concentrations between 31 and 40 PM10/m3, and in 2019 as much as 53%. According to the latest data on hospital admissions of children, admissions due to respiratory diseases represent approximately 23% of all admissions of children (NIJZ, 2020).
