The current levels of atmospheric pollution in Europe still exceeds the norms approved by the EU and the World Health Organization. This was mentioned in the recent report by the European Environmental Agency, as quoted by DW.  

The report insists that the major sources of air pollution are the car exhausts, energy production and agricultural activity, as well as industrial activities.

The overall percentage of those affected somewhat decreases; however, the hard particles, nitrogen dioxide and ozone concentration still appear to be the most dangerous for people. 

According to the report, some 422,000 people deceased in 41 countries across Europe in 2015 due to the excess of hard particle levels in the air; nitrogen dioxide effects caused deaths of 79,000 people. The excessive ozone concentration led to the deaths of 17,700 people.
