Algiers



What is the air quality like at post (good/moderate/bad)? Are there seasonal air quality issues? Does the air quality have an impact on health?

Algiers has bad air quality when the rains don't wash the air out for more than a day or two. Too many cars, and neighbors burning trash. The damp also promotes mold like you wouldn't believe. - Sep 19, 2016
Car pollution is bad. - Jun 9, 2016
Normal for any big city, perhaps even slightly better because we're right on the sea and there's usually a reasonable breeze, so pollution doesn't settle. I've never heard anyone express any concerns. - Mar 15, 2014
