Beijing air pollution soars ‘Beyond Index’ again

Air pollution in Beijing again soared to “Beyond Index” [AQI=506] at 6.00 am on Thursday.

The air quality further deteriorated as a massive sandstorm accompanied by gale force winds from Mongolia hit the Chinese capital several hours later, according to the Beijing Meteorological Bureau.

  • The sandstorm has so far affected parts of Inner Mongolia, Gansu, Shanxi and Hebei provinces.
  • Beijing authorities had already issued a “yellow haze” warning on Wednesday.

The amount of pollutants suspended in the air over the city of Beijing during the worst smog last month was more than 4,000 tons, according to a report by the Chinese Academy of Science.
