By THE NATION

One of 25 drones released yesterday sprays chemicals over Vachirabenjatas Park in Bangkok’s Chatuchak district to reduce the amount of hazardous PM2.5 dust particles.

 

THE CAPITAL’S air pollution situation became more severe yesterday, as the quantity of dangerous PM2.5 particles rose to code-red status of above 90 micrograms per cubic metre of air at many locations. If the level remains that high for three consecutive days, drastic measures may be implemented, perhaps including a ban on the use of cars by 2 million civil servants.
