Bangkok’s ultra-fine dust particles ranged between 31.1–58.3 µg/m³, surpassing the government’s safe threshold of 37.5µg/m³.
BANGKOK (NNT) – Bangkok is on alert as the city faces a spike in ultra-fine dust pollution levels. The Bangkok Metropolitan Administration (BMA), led by Governor Chadchart Sittipunt, said it is closely monitoring the situation and is prepared to implement a work-from-home program if unsafe levels persist for three consecutive days.
The capital is expected to experience poor air quality from Jan 18 – 20, prompting the BMA to issue warnings through its network of over 50,000 members. Residents in 17 districts, including Laksi, Chatuchak, and Klong Toey, have already been advised to prepare for harmful pollution levels.
