Air pollution makes asthma symptoms worse, such as coughing, wheezing, tightness in the chest and shortness of breath.
The AQHI is an initiative between Environment Canada, Health Canada, Environment and Conservation, Newfoundland and Labrador and Health and Community Services, Newfoundland and Labrador.
