The Bangkok Metropolitan Administration (BMA) has advised the general public to anticipate severe air pollution from now until the end of the month, urging them to take precautionary measures.

All schools under the supervision of the Bangkok Metropolitan Administration (BMA) have been ordered closed from today until Friday, as air quality in the capital worsened today and the situation is likely to persist due to poor air circulation and accumulation of PM2.5 dust in the atmosphere.

In the northernmost province of Mae Hong Son, the highest level of PM 2.5 was reported in Tambon Chong Kham in Muang district, at 125.
