China’s air pollution unhealthy for tourists

China’s air pollutionAlthough China’s outbound tourism may record an all time high, the country may end up being a very unhealthy tourist destination. China has announced, a ‘red alert’ threshold for air pollution will be raised in Beijing.

 
The current air quality index (AQI) rules stipulate that a red alert must be issued when the AQI exceeds 200 for at least three days – that’s for the capital. In neighboring Tianjin and Hebei, it’s only triggered when the level exceeds 500 per day.

 
Starting this March, the country will employ a uniform average measurement for both the capital and its surrounding areas. A red alert will also be imposed if the average air quality is at 200 for four days straight, 300 for at least two days, or 500 for a single day.

 
The report comes just as another measure was announced – to build wind corridors across the capital, designed to redirect the flow of smog away from the city. The special ventilation corridors will measure 80 to 500 meters and connect parks and rivers, as well as highways and tall buildings.
