Worsening air pollution to cover Bangkok today, Jan. 16


BANGKOK — Residents of Bangkok were told to brace for worsening air pollution today, January 16, caused by stagnant air which doesn’t disperse the fine dust particles.

Bangkok governor Aswin Kwanmuang issued a warning on Wednesday, referring from Pollution Control Department’s report that the amount of dust particles shrouding Bangkok will increase substantially, especially during evening rush hour, partly due to a lack of movement of air in the current weather conditions, which are likely to continue for the rest of this month.

Outdoor activities for the rest of January, according to the governor, should be avoided so as to keep oneself in good health. The governor also advised to always carry a face mask.
