China’s Capital has now been the ‘victim’ of bad air pollution for the last 5 days straight. On Saturday, February 22, the air quality was 11 times that of the legal limit set by the World Health Organization.
Beijing’s Meteorological Department says that the current batch of smog should dissipate within the next 90 hours. Meaning hopefully by Thursday the city will be livable again.
