Areas with higher Air Pollutant Index (API) have higher number of people suffering from respiratory infections, conjunctivitis, and skin rashes. Just like a primary school hypothesis ya; the more the API, the higher chance for you to be sick.

He also said:

“When going outside, it is necessary to take extra precautions as protection from the haze. Use face masks and constantly wash your face and exposed parts of the body.”
