    Air pollution persists in capital city

    BANGKOK, 8 January 2019 (NNT) – Particulate Matter under 2.5 microns or PM 2.5 was above the safety level throughout the capital city, especially in central Bangkok.


    The Pollution Control Department has reported that PM 2.5 was measured between 42 and 80 micrograms per square meter in Bangkok and its vicinity throughout Monday, threatening the health of Bangkokians in 21 areas, particularly those living in Kanchanaphisek, Bang Na, Bang Kapi, Din Daeng, Lad Prao, Thonburi and Phayathai.


    People residing in central Bangkok have voiced their concerns about possible health issues and long-term effects. The department expects the situation to worsen on Tuesday.


    The public can check air quality in their areas via the “Air4Thai” application developed by the Pollution Control Department. The application allows users to understand the Air Quality Index using signs and colors.

    It was actually a bit nicer yesterday, so I thought it's going away as Prayuth must have prayed for us lowly masses.

    Nope. Another red day.

    I suppose one advantage of all this smog is that I have saved a fortune on ciggies- just stick my head out the window and breath in!


    It's bad air day when I can't read the sign on the apartment complex in the distance- it should say Encanto Town in big yellow letters.
