Unhealthy levels of smog in Malaysia and Singapore - Update

Raging fires on the island of Sumatra caused dangerously high air quality levels in Singapore and Malaysia last week. Today Singapore air has finally cleared and is back to a healthy index level. However, in Malaysia, the air quality index remains at a dangerously high level. A state of emergency was declared for Malaysia on Sunday when the index reached 700, and today, schools are closed. Travellers should be aware that a reading above 300 is considered hazardous to health. Travellers can take precautions by staying indoors as much as possible and not engaging in outdoor physical activities.
