Haze Chokes the Administration
The Capital is sick, being choked with PM 2.5, the fine dust composed of various cardiovascular and respiratory carrier toxins.
Since early this week, the dust particles with the diameter less than 2.5 microns or “PM 2.5” have started to surge in the city, and the trend has continued until today.
Yesterday, their concentrations touched the higest level addressed by the government as the “crisis” with the particle concentration measured above 100 micrograms per cubic meter. This is not to mention that several measurement stations in the city saw the concentrations of the dust particle well passed the safety standard that is set at 50 micrograms per cu m.
