Singapore in year’s worst pollution as Indonesia haze hits

Singapore

As of midday local time (0400 GMT) the Pollutant Standards Index (PSI) reading ranged from 60 to 72, according to the government agency for the environment.

A reading between 51 to 100 is in the moderate range.

The reading also carries a health advisory to reduce outdoor activities and prolonged exertion.

The smoky conditions blanketed the island from Thursday.

The haze was a result of “an increase in hotspot activities observed over Sumatra” in the past week, the agency said on its website.
