The Pollution Control Department has warned residents in Bangkok and Nonthaburi living in five districts to avoid spending long time in the open due to the poor air quality which may pose health threat.
Ozone tests conducted by the PCD have shown that the amounts of ozone in the five districts are beyond the safety standard of not exceeding 100 parts per one billion parts or 100 ppb. The results are: 130 ppb in Bang Kapi; 101 ppb in Intharapitak road in Thon Buri; 112 ppb in Wang Thong Lang;123 bbp and 119 bbp in Nonthaburi’s Bang Kruey and Pakkred districts.
The PCD blamed the poor air quality to high pressure which has been blanketing most parts of the country for keeping the polluted particles from dissipating.
The poor air quality will pose greater health threat to those suffering from lung or breathing problems.
