Singapore covered in dangerous smog, wildfires are burning



Singapore's air quality has worsened to “unhealthy” levels on Saturday for the first time in three years, according to data from the National Environment Agency (NEA), threatening to deepen a regional dispute over forest fires.

During every rainy season, smog in Indonesia covers the sky over much of the region, raising public health concerns and creating concerns for travel operators and airlines.



The 24-hour pollution index used by the NEA Singapore agency as an indicator was in the range of 87-106 in the afternoon. Readings above 100 are considered unhealthy.

This is the first time that the 24-hour indicator has crossed 100 since August 2016, data show.

“There has been a deterioration in Singapore's fog conditions this afternoon,” the NEA reported.

A city shrouded in gray mist

Many people on Saturday chose to stay home while the city was shrouded in gray mist.

The air quality in the Indonesian cities closest to the fires came to dangerous levels and on Wednesday, thousands of Islamic believers participated in prayers for rain.

Next weekend, a grand prix Formula 1 motorcycle race will take place in Singapore, an event that will draw the world's attention to that tourist destination.
