Several areas in Bangkok are recorded unhealthy air quality since this morning, January 15th, as PM2.5 dust particles have returned and amounted between 62 to 116 micrograms per cubic meter over the past 24 hours.
The Pollution Control Department announced a real-time air quality index on its website that air quality in all 11 areas of the capital is affecting health, with the highest PM2.5 level between 90 to 116 µg/m3 in Prawet District, Bang Khun Thian District, Bangna District, Chom Thong District, Nong Khaem District, Thung Khru District, Khlong Toei District, Bang Bon District, Thawi Watthana District, Don Mueng District, and Prakanong District.
Locals are advised to reduce outdoor activities, close their windows to avoid dirty outdoor air, and use protective gear.
According to the Bangkok Metropolitan Administration (BMA) spokesperson, Pongsakorn Kwanmuang, more PM2.5 dust accumulation will occur until this Sunday, January 17. This is due to hovering wind over upper Thailand that is weakening as well as cool air with morning fog.
