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, according to data from the Environmental Protection Department’s website.

The index was 122 in the Central business district and 119 in Causeway Bay as of 7 a.m. local time. The reading in Mong Kok was 106. A reading of more than 100 triggers a government warning for people with heart or respiratory illnesses to avoid prolonged stays in heavy-traffic areas.
