Air Pollution Rises in China

Air pollution in Chinese capital has gone 40 times higher than the WHO's recommendations. Rise in air pollution has become a big worry for China as the daily death rate has increased to 50%. There are other megacities as well that have sought a rise in air pollution like cities in the UK that have gone two or three times higher than the WHO guidelines.

On the 10th and 13th January, high pollution was recorded in Derry, and in east Midlands, Chesterfield, on the 17th, and in the Nottingham, on 24th Jan that was found to reach the peak of air pollution.

Amongst the most polluted cities, seven are in China. Car emissions, construction dust, atmospheric conditions and burning of coal during winters particularly are the major factors that are involved in creating smog that engulfs the city.

In 1952, the smog in London claimed the lives of nearly 12,000 people and then, actions were taken to reduce the intensity of air pollution. Now it's the high time to apply preventive measures in Beijing by going for permanent solutions.

According to a study published in the wake of air pollution in China, 3.8% of GDP is what that could be the economic burden of air pollution in relation to the impact on health.

Japanese government is about to send a team of health experts to China very soon to do medical checkups of Japanese residents.
