2014’s Highest Mold Count Recorded in the Midwest

On May 28, the allergy count for the Midwest regions showed the highest mold count in the year 2014.

According to Joseph Leija , who is an allergist and the creator of Gottlieb Allergy Count in Gottlieb Memorial Hospital, situated outside Chicago, “The daily rains coupled with the warm, humid weather have created the perfect environment for mold….The mold count is around 30,000 which is high but not at air quality alert status, which is 50,000.”

Leija also said that this high mold count can trigger symptoms like nasal congestion, scratchy throats, fatigue, headache and runny nose, in the people having mold allergies.
