– trending news updates, world news, local news and all about nations, states and governments.

This Friday (21), a large volume of smoke was recorded that spread across the state of Mato Grosso do Sul, reaching the population. This large amount of smoke was caused by the constant number of fires found in the Pantanal, in Mato Grosso do Sul. The smoke spread, reaching everything from homes to commercial establishments.

Since last Wednesday (19), fires have caused inconvenience to residents of the city of Corumbá (MS).

Smokes

After the start of the fires and consequently the large volume of smoke in this region, cases of respiratory problems tripled, thus increasing the number of patients with flu problems. This results in high numbers of people needing medical care. In an attempt to reduce the risk, the Department of Education prohibited any activity from taking place in external areas, that is, outdoors, to ensure everyone's well-being and ensure that the population hydrates even more.

Population

For a few days now, residents in the region have avoided opening their windows due to the smoke, and continue to take some precautions to avoid illnesses that could arise from the smoke. Despite this, professionals who need to be exposed to the open air also continue to be careful, such as gas station attendants, for example, who are wearing masks, to avoid breathing major toxic substances that are present in the smoke and are harmful to their health.

The substances present in smoke are carbon monoxide and oxygen oxide, which when inhaled, can cause great harm to health.

Current fire situation

The fires are all under control. It is estimated that there are 508 fires in the Pantanal and 409 in Corumbá. Although fires are part of the Pantanal cycle, Embrapa researcher Walfrido Thomaz says that if it continues like this, it could end up causing serious damage to the region in terms of ecosystem renewal.
