    For what it is worth, air pollution actually increases the seriousness of illness due to COVID-19. The American Lung Association reports that “researchers found that an increase in exposure to hazardous air pollutants is associated with a 9% increase in death among patients with COVID-19.”

    Please don’t call Pm 2.5 particulate matter “dust”. Either use aerosol particle or particulate matter. I’ve had people send me videos of fur in the air or pictures of dust on furniture as an example of PM2.5 which is not correct. Although your article does outline the size of the particles, people are unlikely to know how small these particles are and the use of the term “dust” confuses them more.

    Sad to say it but to the Thai government covid is everything and all other stuff that kills you to an even greater extent, such as road accidents, air pollution, crappy foods, pesticides, malaria etc. etc. they sweep under the rug.

      Wait and see – wait and see. When the covid situation gets better we will be seeing new emergency decrees on the basis of air pollution or whatever plausible they can come up with to keep it in effect.

      When Mr. Covid have gone home and the protests start again we might even see emergency decress on the basis of the weather.

    Did Prayuth just push the play button on the same old same old stuff he said every year. Pollution hit 400 AQI in Bangkok and 170 on average for the whole north and over 100 AQI on the so called “tourist” islands. Good job! LOS – Land of Smog, TT – Toxic Thailand. Sorry we need to breath. Must move.
