[Quick Update] Beijing AQI reaches 500

I just checked the AQI in Beijing and believe it or not we have reached the maximum 500 mark. AQI is a scale devised by the US-based Environmental Protection Agency (EPA). With an AQI of 500 it states “Health warnings of emergency conditions”. What do we do now? For more information of interpreting the AQI in a Beijing context please visit the My Health Beijing Blog.
