Air is made unsafe for breathing when it contains unpleasant odour from fåeces, dirt, poisonous gas and other rubbish. When air is polluted, it causes diseases or germs to spread to people. This can cause cough, small pox, chicken pox, tuberculosis (TB) and measles.
Polluted air can also cause suffocation. If people suffering from these diseases cough or sneeze, the germs that cause the diseases go into the air and other people could breathe them in, and be infected, with the diseases.
