The Pollution Control Department (PCD) has reported an improvement in the air quality in Bangkok and neighbouring provinces.

As of 7am on Friday (January 24), the average particulate matter smaller than 2.5 microns (PM2.5) in the air was around 25 to 55 micrograms per cubic metre.

The PCD said the amount of particles in almost all areas was likely to decrease, as compared to Thursday’s reading.

One area with unhealthy level of particles -- in the orange zone -- was near Lat Phrao Soi 95 in Wang Thonglang district of Bangkok.

The PCD warned people living in this area to avoid outdoor activities and use self-protection equipment if needed.

People can monitor the PM2.5 situation through Air4Thai.com, ‘Air4Thai’ mobile application, and bangkokairquality.com.
