It is the festive season soon for most of us Malaysians because of the upcoming Chinese New Year celebrations. Some might spend time at home with their families while others might be planning to travel. For those who are planning to fly up to Bangkok this festive season, you might want to reconsider that idea.
Earlier this month it was reported that the air quality in Bangkok has been deteriorating and has reached a dangerous level. The fine particles in the haze cannot be dispersed because of Bangkok’s cool climate and the high pressure coming from China.
As reported by Daily Mail, the toxic smog is now at PM2.5 particles and has affected the health of the people and animals in the city. Although most of them are already wearing masks to protect themselves from the dangers of the smog, the damage has been done as some individuals have been sharing photos of blood coming out of their noses, eyes and even when they cough or sneeze.
An office worker told Daily Mail,
“Two days ago, my nose was hurting when I breathe. I sneezed all night and it was even worse in the morning when I sneezed out blood. I was totally shocked because I never sneezed blood before in my entire life. I believe the dust is to blame.”
As of now, the Thai government has closed 439 schools and initiated steps in order to fight the smog. The authorities have done cloud seeding, sprayed water to catch the pollutants and even stopped people from burning incense for the Chinese New Year. However, the efforts have yet to show any results.
Again, for all Malaysians, if you have plans on visiting Bangkok anytime soon, do take the necessary precautions. For the time being, maybe you can opt for travel in other locations instead.
