Air Pollutants 'to Purpose Millions of Deaths in Korea'

Air pollutants volitionmotive millions of deaths in Korea by skill of 2060 and deal a gigantic blow to the country's economy unless it makes more efforts to fortify air quality, the OECD warned ultimate Thursday.An OECD file warned some 1,109 Koreans per million population may just die in advancebecause of air pollution in 2060.The worst effects were forecast for China with 2,052 deaths per million and India with 2,039.
