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

The air pollution index is good during the rainy season and moderate to unhealthy during the dry season. People burn everything during the dry season and so the dust and detritus in the air is irritating to eyes, throats, and nose. The water should not be drunk straight, but is not nearly as bad as some other African countries.
