The air quality levels in Bangkok have improved to safe levels, according to data seen on Thursday (February 13).

 

The levels of PM2.5 dust (particulate matter smaller than 2.5 microns in diameter) in several districts of Bangkok and nearby provinces were in the safe zone, according to the results from 57 air-quality monitoring stations at 7am on Thursday.

 

The Pollution Control Department (PCD) said dust particle levels were in the range between 17 to 41mcg per cubic metre while the international and Thai safety standards are set at 25mcg per cubic metre and 50mcg per cubic metre respectively.

 

However, other provinces in Thailand like Khon Kaen, Nakhon Ratchasima, Chiang Rai, Loei, Phrae and Mae Hong Son still face unhealthy smog, with dust levels at between 60-70mcg per cubic metre.

'The air quality levels in Bangkok have improved to safe levels...'

FYI

Bangkok PM2.5 levels today: 'moderate' to 'Unhealthy for sensitive groups'

Kanchanaburi 'Unhealthy'

North of Thailand  to a large extent 'Unhealthy'

Yep they are just getting started but no worries the PCD has everything 100% under control.😁

Yes, they control the amount of burning that takes place.  50% of sugar cane is allowed to be burnt and processed

thank buddha for that. now we can all forget about it until next burning season!

 

 

Unfortunately, the current respite has absolutely nothing to do with anything the Thai government has done to improve local air quality...because by and large...they haven't done ANYTHING of any consequence.

 

It's a weather driven respite, and most likely, we'll have more bouts of bad air in BKK later in Feb. before things finally close out the very bad part of the annual smog season.

Even if its better today, it will be the same next year. Drastic action is required, even if it entails pain.
