    • Haze returns to Singapore as reports of burning smell pour in

       

      Many people in Singapore reported a burning smell as haze readings surged early on Friday (22 Aug).

      As of 10am, the 3-hour PSI level stood at 111, according to the website of the National Environment Agency.

      A 24-hour PSI reading within 101-200 would be in the “unhealthy” level, but as of 10am it was still within the “moderate” 51-62 range.

      The PM2.5 pollution index, which measures finer pollutants of smaller than 2.5 microns in diameter, shot up to the “normal to elevated” Band II range of 150 in the west of Singapore and 102 in the north from single digit levels earlier in the morning.

      PM2.5 pollutants is one of the six pollutants, including carbon monoxide and sulphur dioxide, that the PSI measures. Long and regular exposure to PM2.5 is linked to higher risk of death from complications like lung cancer or heart disease. There are four bands of measurements for the PM2.5 index.

    • what's new?

      I'm surprised that after so many years, the human body has not adapted itself to the haze.

      Maybe we would, eventually.
