Pollution Control Department (PCD) warned people living in Bangkok and nearby areas that PM2.5 dust particles will increase from tomorrow (Thursday).
Atthaphol Charoenchansa, director-general of PCD, said yesterday that the weakening of the cold front from China will “slow air circulation, causing airborne dust particles to accumulate and drop to a lower altitude, especially on Friday,” Thai PBS World reported.
The director-general encouraged motorists in Bangkok and its suburbs not to keep the engines of their cars running while parked and farmers not to burn agricultural waste in open fields, while everyone should reduce outdoor activity, the report added.
Air quality across Thailand at 3 pm yesterday showed that it was within acceptable standards.
