In the past two years, there have been 1,200 deaths that can be directly attributed to air pollution, said Dr. Armando Ahued, Secretary of Health of Mexico City. He also said that death rates related to air pollution increased by 19 percent between 1990 and 2013.

In a meeting with the government commission of the Mexico City Congress (ALDF) about the consequences of air pollution, especially ozone, carbon monoxide and other pollutants, Ahued explained that the government of the city has taken major measures to protect the health of its citizens, and that although they remain insufficient, he will keep working to ensure citizens’ health.

Leonel Luna, the president of the government commission, proposed that the asphalt plant in Coyoacán be removed from the city, and that other industry be removed from the Valley of Mexico. He also proposed promoting non-polluting “chimneyless” industry to compensate for possible job loss.
