On January 17 morning, the department’s Hanoi Agency of Environmental Protection (AEP) said that Hanoi’s air quality index (AQI) measured at ten monitoring stations in the city was in the range of from 27 to 56.

Specifically, 7/10 monitoring stations which recorded AQI at good level (green) included Tan Mai (27), Tay Mo (34), Trung Yen (35), Minh Khai (38), Hoan Kiem (39), Kim Lien (43), and My Dinh (44).

Compared to air quality a day earlier, the AQI decreased considerably with the highest readings recorded at Pham Van Dong (56) and Hang Dau (55).

The AEP said Hanoi's air quality improves thanks to the cold front that came last night. The northeast monsoon which arrived in Hanoi yesterday evening causes drizzle and helps reduce dust in the air and circulate air flow.


The AEP still recommended 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.

In suburban areas, people need to reduce burning waste and agricultural by-products.
