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?

Bad. Many colleagues (or their kids) developed a cough. - Mar 2021

The air quality is bad May-October. - Jan 2021

Air can be sandy/dusty. High humidity in the summer can mean mold in your house. - Dec 2016

Beautiful from October to April. Sand storms and humid, thick, hot air in the summer. - Jul 2013

The air is ok. During the summer it is quite hot, so one would want to stay indoors. During the infrequent sand storms, obviously, one doesn't want to be outside - Aug 2011

Generally good. We get a lot of sandy days where the city is covered with haze, but, as someone who does suffer with hayfever and asthma, it's not too bad. I've not had any problems. - Jan 2011
