Potential reduction in total annual premature deaths (central estimate and 95 % confidence interval (CI)) among people 30 years and over in 26 APHEIS cities
All other things being equal, policies to reduce PM2.5 to 15 µg/m3 would prevent three times more premature deaths in the cities than a reduction to 25 µg/m3, and reducing them to 10 µg/m3 to five times more than to 25 µg/m3
