As per the atmosphere of Lahore and Punjab in general… Its not fog…. Its SMOG …. very thick toxic blanket of pollutants which is a threatening health hazard.
Visibility on open areas and Motorway has decreased to 20-25 m. This condition creates serious breathing elements and eye infections. In countries elsewhere this climatic condition calls for emergency closing down of schools, public places so, people could come in contact of this danger as less as possible. Even at 12:20 pm the smog has got more dense and people complain of feeling it inside their homes, burning eyes, and heavy breathing.
As a request, please minimize going out for long and if possible wear masks to protect yourself and your children. Eye wash should be used frequently to clear eyes.
The schools in general and government in particular should take a step with immediate effect to cope with the situation. They should measure the Air Quality Index and take adequate measures.
Lets all pray to Allah for his blessings in the form of rain and forgive us. Ameen
This #smog/dust situation is pretty bad in #Lahore! No forecasts of rain anytime soon. Better to stay indoors and wash your eyes regularly.
