April 16 (Bloomberg) -- 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 191 in the Central business district and 115 in Causeway Bay as of 6 a.m. local time. The reading in Mong Kok was 167. 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.
