Bangkok air hits ‘code red’ while authorities resist strong measures

THE CAPITAL’S air pollution situation became more severe yesterday, as the quantity of dangerous PM2.5 particles rose to code-red status of above 90 micrograms per cubic metre of air at many locations. If the level remains that high for three consecutive days, drastic measures may be implemented, perhaps including a ban on the use of cars by 2 million civil servants.
 

Nearly 10 Bangkok areas were at 7.15am yesterday flagged “code red”, which is triggered when particles with diameters sized at or below 2.5 micrometres reach 90 micrograms per cubic metre of air. More than 30 areas were designated “code orange”, which denotes the beginning of negative health effects, a report by the Bangkok Metropolitan Administration (BMA)’s Environment Office’s Air Quality Division said. 

The safe limit in Thailand is considered under 50 micrograms of PM2.5 per cubic metre of air, whereas the World Health Organisation pegs it at 25 micrograms.
