0

BEIJING: China’s capital was shrouded in dangerous smog on Thursday, cutting visibility down to a few hundred meters as a count of small particulate pollution reached more than 25 times recommended levels. A grey haze filled the sky, leaving an industrial, burning smell hanging in the air as PM2.5 reached over 500 micrograms per cubic meter in parts of Beijing. The World Health Organization recommends an exposure level of no more than 25 over a 24-hour period.
