On Tuesday, October 1, authorities in Vietnam warned people to limit outdoor activities due to "unhealthy" levels of air quality. In a statement, the government said that levels of hazardous particulate matter (PM2.5) have risen in Hanoi and Ho Chi Minh since early September primarily due to low rain and crop burning.
PM2.5 levels are forecast to stay high over the coming days.
Individuals present in Vietnam are advised to monitor the situation in the coming days, limit outdoor activity, and adhere to any instructions issued by the local authorities. If experiencing breathing difficulties, do not hesitate to seek medical attention.
