Positive News for Some Regions

While multiple locations experienced unhealthy air quality, there were some locations in the country that enjoyed good air quality with an API of less than 50. These areas include:

  • Sibu, Sarawak – API 45
  • Sri Aman, Sarawak – API 44
  • Kimanis, Sabah – API 45

The recent unhealthy API readings in various locations across Peninsular Malaysia are a reminder of the importance of air quality monitoring and environmental consciousness. Efforts to address air pollution and protect the well-being of residents remain crucial. As the situation evolves, residents are encouraged to stay informed and take necessary precautions to mitigate the effects of poor air quality on their health.
