The top official at the Public Health Ministry and ministry administrators held a video conference with physicians in provincial public health centres nationwide to be prepared and monitor the health impact of PM2.5 dust particles, which usually increase in December every year.

 

 

The video conference was arranged on Friday (November 22) at the Public Health Emergency Operation Centre, the Office of the Permanent Secretary, Nonthaburi province.

 

Ministry permanent secretary Dr Sukhum Kanchanapimai urged the physicians to be prepared to deal with the dust particle situation, to provide information to people, especially asthma patients, the elderly, children and patients, to monitor patients, to submit reports every week, as well as open Public Health Emergency Operation Centre if the amount exceeds 75 micrograms per cubic metre over three days.

 

PM2.5 are atmospheric particulate matter having a diameter less than 2.5 micrometres.

 

“The prime minister, deputy prime minister, the Minister of Public Health and the Deputy Minister of Public Health are concerned about the PM2.5 dust particle problem and have appointed the Ministry of Public Health to cooperate with related authorities to tackle this problem,” he said.

 

“The Office of the Permanent Secretary is ready to open the Public Health Emergency Operation Centre at four levels -- in provinces, health zones, departments, and ministries.”

In addition I would add that the local police "force" and the fire brigades will be instructed that as soon as the fires starts that they will act in the way they have to do; with fines/arresting and the fight the fires with all the resources  they have even with water-planes.

If there are bigger fires employ the army from the start, then they also have to do something and let the generals be in charge ( there are enough generals in this country to do so)

This all from the start of the problem to let the people know that there will be actions takes from the beginning.

I also know there will not be police and firemen enough to do this all and I hope that  I am not dreaming again.

You have your share of publicity again today!
What does monitoring mean? If the dead are not as many as you expected do you want to increase emissions?
