All schools under the supervision of the Bangkok Metropolitan Administration (BMA) have been ordered closed from tomorrow (Wednesday) until Friday, as air quality in the capital worsened today and the situation is likely to persist due to poor air circulation and accumulation of PM2.5 dust in the atmosphere.

 

City Hall spokesman Pongsakorn Kwanmuang said today that the city administration will ask high-rise and the electric train construction sites to suspend operations until Friday.

 

Police have been asked to prevent trucks with six wheels or more from accessing the Ratchadapisek ring road from midday until midnight on Thursday and to set up roadblocks to check vehicle exhaust emissions.

When will you start to see this problem as a national problem and not just a Bangkok problem?

What's the point of closing schools ???

Several schools in Bangkok area were ordered to remain closed on February 26-27 by the Bangkok Metropolitan Administration (BMA) to avoid air pollution that could affect commuting students and parents.

The Thailand Meteorological Department has forecast that from February 26-28 weak winds and lack of rains in Bangkok and its perimeter areas will worsen dust pollution, especially particulate matter less than 2.5 microns in diameter (PM2.5).

Closing schools instead of lowering pollution levels? As things stand, Thai students already don't get the education they need! Yet another ridiculous idea.
