Air pollution has been an ongoing problem in many countries in the Southeast Asia region, and Malaysia is one of the worst affected. The main cause of this haze is the slash and burn activities and peat fires.
We should take note that when the Pollutant Standards Index (PSI) reading is 101 and above, where Haze particles can sometimes affect the heart and lungs, especially in people who already have chronic heart or lung disease such as:
-Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD)
When there is haze, it is recommended to stay indoors, drink plenty of water and to wear an N95 face mask when you do go outdoors.
