The thick fog covering the eastern coast of Thailand is a natural phenomenon, the Centre for Air Pollution Mitigation said on Saturday.

Recent news of thick fog seen over Pattaya city on Friday had caused jitters among the people about PM2.5 air pollution.

The centre explained that the collision of hot and cold air masses together with high humidity had caused the fog in the areas.

"This fog will disappear when the temperature rises and it may occur again," the centre said.

The centre added that a portable air quality metre may show exaggerated results as it may read water vapour as dust particles.

"People can visit the centre's Facebook page for weather information, PM2.5 air pollution forecast and knowledge about air pollution, while they can report air pollution cases via the Pollution Control Department's hotline 1650," the centre added.
