The Hanoitimes - Hanoi’s air quality index (AQI) measured at 10 monitoring stations in the city was in the range of from 111 to 161.
Air quality in the latest 24 hours in Hanoi has been back to the unhealthy level after improving a day ago, according to the Hanoi Agency of Environmental Protection (AEP).
On November 15 afternoon, the AEP said that Hanoi’s air quality index (AQI) measured at 10 monitoring stations in the city was in the range of from 111 to 161.
After experiencing one day with AQI at the good level, thanks to the influence of rain and strong winds, today it stopped raining and was sunny in the capital city.
Air quality worsened compared to a day earlier. The AQI has increased considerably, with the highest readings recorded at Minh Khai (161), Pham Van Dong (157), and Hang Dau (156).
Other areas had AQI below 150 such as Thanh Cong, Trung Yen 3, Hoan Kiem, My Dinh. The area with the lowest reading was Tan Mai (111).
The AEP repeated the recommendations that Hanoi’s residents should follow air quality information where they are living and working before going out to prevent diseases.
Besides, sensitive groups including children, the elderly and people with respiratory diseases should limit their time outdoors.
When travelling on roads, people need to strictly follow traffic laws to reduce traffic congestion. The Hanoi police should strengthen traffic regulation in some areas with high traffic density such as Pham Van Dong, Hang Dau, Minh Khai, among others.
