The problem of air pollution is serious all over the world, including in Pakistan.
But in one country, the situation of air pollution has become so bad that people in the capital and neighboring provinces have been advised to stay at home.
The level of air pollution in Bangkok, the capital of Thailand, and neighboring provinces has exceeded the safety level of the World Health Organization by 14 times.
Levels of PM 2.5, the tiny, harmful particulate matter in the air, have skyrocketed, making Bangkok the sixth worst city in the world, according to IQAir.
Thailand’s air pollution control agency said in a statement that weather conditions had worsened as a result of vehicle fumes and burning of crops on agricultural land.
According to the statement, we have advised people to work from home to control air pollution and to avoid activities outside the four walls of the school to protect public health.
Residents of Bangkok have complained of breathing problems and reduced visibility outside their homes.
“My eyes are burnt, I can hardly see my surroundings while riding a motorcycle,” said the citizen.
According to the World Health Organization, 4.2 million people die prematurely every year due to air pollution.
