Hong Kong Air Pollution Very High at All 3 Roadside Stations
Hong Kong’s Air Pollution Index was “very high” at all three of the city’s roadside-monitoring stations, the Environmental Protection Department said on its website today.
The index was 178 in Mong Kok, 174 in Central business district and 172 in Causeway Bay as of 7 a.m. local time, the department said. Roadside pollution of more than 100 triggers a government warning for people with heart or respiratory illnesses to avoid prolonged stays in heavy-traffic areas.
