Regarding the AQI of Malaysia and Singapore in Recent Days

In Breathe Quality, we have received more and more questions of audiences who come from Malaysia and Singapore in recent days. First, we feel sorry for the problem you all have come across, and here we are, giving you the answers for some frequently asked questions.

What causes air pollution in Malaysia and Singapore?

There are currently 3 major sources of air pollution, which have been researched thoroughly, in both Malaysia and Singapore: mobile source, power stations and industrial process’s wastes.

What is the current status of Air Quality in Malaysia and Singapore?

According to some local news, the air quality index (AQI) in Singapore has been improved, as the PSI readings changed from “unhealthy” to be “moderate”.

The situation, however, is not that good for Malaysia, and we found an article claimed that thousands of schools in Malaysia and Indonesia have been temporarily shut to wait for a better situation.

Is air purifier necessary in such haze crisis?

The air purifiers DO help, but you must remember that all the air purifiers only work indoors. You need to close all the doors and windows, to limit the outdoor polluted air to come in, then you can use the air purifier to filter the bad contaminants and improve indoor air quality.

You shouldn’t use the air purifier outdoors, and you need to cover your face with your mask, and you should wear eye glasses to protect the eyes.

Here is the list of the best air purifiers to use, to serve specific purposes, and for reference only (because these air purifiers are mainly for U.S citizens):
