AFTER spending several days choking on high levels of fine particle dust, many Bangkokians opted for masks to protect themselves, though some were unable to find the N95-grade facemasks required and are calling for the authorities to cover the shortage.

Meanwhile, an online poll conducted by The Standard online magazine among 2,200 residents on Monday and yesterday revealed that 50.3 per cent wore masks to protect themselves, while the remainder complained they could not find one. They said they had visited many pharmacies and convenience stores, but were told they would only get one in two weeks if they make a reservation or post order for the product now . 

Another poll conducted by the magazine on Twitter found that 53 per cent of the 715 respondents wore a facemask. Most people responded to the question – “How do you live with PM2.5 [dust particles 2.5 micrometers or smaller in size]?” – by criticising the government for being too slow in dealing with the issue and not having any remedial measures in place. Many also complained of developing respiratory problems due to the dust.
