Pollution index (Good, Moderate, Unhealthy, or Very Unhealthy)?

Unhealthy in the winter. Coal is burned. Asthmatics may have trouble. - Jun 19, 2009
During the winter very unhealthy. A lot of people burn coal to keep their houses warm. Not recommended for people with asthma or any other respiratory problems. - Mar 18, 2009
Last winter was very very unhealthy, due to the massive use of wood and lignite for heating. In January people were advised to stay inside because of the bad air. This winter is ok so far. Spring is not good for people with allergies, summer is no problem. Asthmatic people (children) better avoid the city or should choose a house high up in the mountains. - Dec 17, 2008
