Let's take a look at some of them;

1. Flu

Dryness and low humidity as we know is associated with this season, hence increases the spread of infections or diseases like cold, cough, catarrrh, sore throat and runny nose.

Since the harmattan season is accompanied by intense cold weather along with dust particles, this can deteriorate the air quality of the human body.
