Fifty-one areas in Bangkok, and eight in its vicinity, have been declared ‘orange zones’ this morning (Monday) as the levels of PM2.5 dust in the air reach 77 microns.

Air quality monitoring devices at 72 locations in and around Bangkok show readings of airborne PM2.5 dust ranging from 42 to 77 microns, said the Department of Pollution Control.

Meanwhile, the Meteorological Department forecast today that the central region, including Bangkok, will face worsening air pollution, from the accumulation of more fine dust and smoke in the next couple of days, due to the weakening easterly wind.
