Schools shut in Bangkok due to air pollution fears

Jan 30, 2019 21:09 IST

More than 400 schools have been shut down across Bangkok due to serious and persistent air pollution fears. Several weeks of dangerously unhealthy air toxicity levels have forced authorities to take the extreme step. Still air and heavy traffic seems to be causing a buildup of particles in the air. The PM 2.5 particulate matter has gone up in all areas and authorities have asked people to stay indoors.
