It said the highest urban concentrations were observed in Belgium, Bulgaria, the Czech Republic, Greece, Hungary, Italy, Luxembourg, the Netherlands, Poland, Portugal, Romania, Spain and western Balkan cities.

Northern Italy’s Po Valley, parts of Belgium and the Netherlands, and southern Spain are the worst affected.
