What is Sahara dust?

Sahara dust is clouds of dust created from warm air masses charged with sand particles. These clouds travel from the African region to the European and American continents.

The Sahara Desert is the largest in the world. It extends across 11 North African countries: Algeria, Egypt, Chad, Libya, Morocco, Niger, Sudan, Mali, Western Sahara, Mauritania, and Tunisia.


Given the increase in temperatures reported by the National Meteorological Office (ONAMET), you should wear light, and bright-colored clothing, drink a lot of water.

In addition, clean surfaces with damp cloths and try not to expose yourself to the sun’s rays between 10-11 in the morning until 4:00 in the afternoon.

Also, consume foods low in fat, salt, and sugars.

In the same way, those who suffer from respiratory problems use their medications and take all the rigorous hygiene and care measures.
