Many areas in Hong Kong experienced heavy air pollution on Wednesday (Jan 17), local media reported.

Out of 16 air-quality monitoring stations, 14 stations showed a “high” to “very high” health risk during the early afternoon, the South China Morning Post (SCMP) said.

By 3pm, all but two of the air quality monitoring stations showed readings between seven and 10 on the 11-tier Air Quality Health Index, the newspaper said.

Stations at Yuen Long, Mong Kok, Tuen Mun, Tung Chung, Kwai Chung and Tsuen Wan had readings of 10+ at around 5pm, a level which was considered a “serious” health risk, reported SCMP.

As of 10pm, two stations in Tsuen Wan and Tuan Mun were still experiencing serious air pollution.

The Environmental Protection Department said it detected higher-than-normal levels of nitrogen dioxide (NO2) and particulate matter across the territory.
