Respiratory problems on the rise in Phayao as field burning continues

Phayao is seeing an increasing number of patients with respiratory problems after PM 2.5 dust particles rose to an “unhealthy” level in the province.

 

The amount of PM 2.5 dust particles in Phayao province today (January 28) was measured at 104 microgrammes per cubic metre, while PM 10 dust particles were put at 124 microgrammes.

 

Phayao Hospital director Jiraporn Patraranuthaporn said the hospital is advising patients to use masks to tackle the toxic dust problem.

 

“The number of respiratory patients is increasing. Wildfire and the burning of weeds in agricultural areas still occur in Phayao, because there is no announcement to ban the burning of crops yet,” she said.

It's difficult to see how babies and toddlers can wear masks, and yet they are a group which is particularly vulnerable to the health impacts of PM 2.5.

This is the worst I have seen in January in the 8 years I have lived here. There has been no rain for almost 2 months.

My advanced answer had disappeared. My fault or supervision?

 

OK.   *  This year it is the worst. - Stop.  *

In Thailand you cannot change old habits. I bough a potato chipping machine for my staff that would have produced 15 french fries with one stroke of the handle, but would they use it ? Not a chance !

Thanks, Mr sceadugenga,

then it's me and my computer.

Adding to 'Unhealthy Levels':

Phayao today is completely normal/average in Northern Thailand with an AQI 170.

So normal has become unhealthy.

A dangerous development.
