On January 19 afternoon, the AEP informed that Hanoi’s air quality index (AQI) measured at 10 monitoring stations in the city was in the range of from 70 to 119.
Two days ago, the capital city’s air quality was mostly at good and average levels at all ten monitoring stations, Hanoians woke up breathing healthier air thanks to the cold front and northeast monsoon which helped reduce dust in the air and circulate air flow.
However, the index increased slightly on January 19 afternoon. The highest AQI was recorded in Hang Dau (119). Six other areas had AQI below 100.
The AEP still recommends that when travelling on roads, people need to strictly follow traffic laws to reduce traffic congestion.
People should reduce activities that cause air pollution such as burning waste, cooking by charcoal stoves, transporting construction waste without shielding.
