Chiang Mai was once again the world's most polluted city, with air quality level at 346, the AirVisual application reported at 9.58am on Friday (March 20).

 

Dust particles smaller than 2.5 microns in diameter ( PM2.5), measured 295.7 micrograms per cubic metre.

 

The province was followed by Bangladesh capital Dhaka and the Pakistani city of Lahore, with the air quality levels at 214 and 204 respectively.

 

According to the Air Quality Index, a reading between 0 to 50 is healthy, 51 to 100 is moderate, 101 to 150 is unhealthy for sensitive groups, 151 to 200 is unhealthy, 201 to 300 is very unhealthy, and 301 to 500 is dangerous.

Should make the Governor of CM operate his office outside in the smoky air for a few weeks as punishment.

Chained to a tree in the Forest would be a better idea !

Last week they were number 1 with score around 240 I think. Beat #2 by around 50. This new score is like if I raced against Usain Bolt. Have to check some more trucks, I reckon (kidding)

The air is so much better here in Chiang Rai: ‘only’ 301 today at. 13.00h. Was 404 a couple of hours ago.........

Yes, that's actually good according to Thai standards and a great time to get outside and play football with the kids. 👍 The health minister has everything under control. Enjoy...😆

But why hasn't he tasked them with reporting air pollution measures daily too?
