Air Pollution in Hanoi

Air Pollution in Hanoi - MAU Mask

In October 2019, figures released by AirVisual put Vietnam’s capital city Hanoi as the most polluted city list followed by Jakarta in Indonesia and Ho Chi Minh City.

According to the air monitoring system of Hanoi Department of Natural Resources and Environment, the city air quality remained at “unhealthy” levels, mostly due to dust pollution.

Bad weather in the capital and fog made it difficult for the dust to be diluted or blown away.

At the same time, low wind speeds reduced air convection and trapping dust near the surface all contributed to the declining quality of the air in Hanoi. [Source: Vietnam News/ANN]
