  Kuwait • Kuwait health authorities have warned sandstorms are causing the public physical and mental illness, said a report. Unprecedented sandstorms in Kuwait, the likes of which have not been seen for 30 years, are making the public physically and mentally ill, health authorities have warned.


The adverse weather conditions, labelled the ‘Al Bawareh wave of dust’, have caused physical illness in many residents, particularly those suffering from allergies, state news agency KUNA reported on Sunday.


Psychologists have also said the sandstorms are causing “seasonal depression”, stating that “environmental pollution and changes play a great role in creating psychological and behavioural tension and anxiety”, KUNA said.
