Pollen Allergy: Nearly 30 Departments on High Alert


The wonderful days have barely arrived, the pollen is returning to France. While several cities reached temperatures worthy of a summer month on Wednesday, rising mercury levels are also synonymous with the return of pollen and therefore allergies. On Thursday, March 30, the National Network for Aerobiological Surveillance (RNSA) placed all departments of metropolitan France at a “medium” health impact level, and 31 at a “high” impact level.

“Very high allergenic potential”

On its website, the RNSA explains that the main culprits are “birch dust” WHO “would be a concern for allergy sufferers in much of the country”. Bad news for those affected, particles, “A allergenic potential very high” testing “many ocular, nasal, and even respiratory symptoms”, specifies the network. Other departments such as Haute-Saône and Territory Belfort are also affected by hornbeam pollen from the same family as birches.

In the south, it is the pollen of the Cupressaceae-Taxaceae, which include, for example, cypress and juniper, which are very present in the air. The network says that “Ash, elm, willow, and poplar pollen are also present with a low to moderate risk of allergy.” Finally, the first grass pollen arrives from the west of the country, and the pollen of parietaria and plane trees comes from the south. “with an allergy risk already at an average level”indicates RNSA.

The arrival of this pollen is due to the spring weather and strong sunshine that was observed in France on Wednesday and Thursday. However, the rain’s return should provide a bit of a respite, with pollen levels dropping from this Friday and a strong return from April 2nd. Climate change and rising temperatures are affecting the amount of pollen released into the air each year and should lead to longer and more intense allergy seasons, according to a note released Feb. 24 by the Ministry of Environmental Transition.

“Over 30 years, it has already been observed that the amount of birch pollen has increased by more than 20%”Samuel Monnier, an RNSA spokesman, told AFP last summer. “Global warming will increase the length of the pollen season, and pollution will make the pollen more aggressive.” for his part warned Isabelle Bosse, president of the allergist union.
