Beware of Poor Air Quality Escalation

Indonesia is a country in the equator that has 2 seasons in one year. Currently, the dry season has taken place, in some regions in Indonesia experiencing drought. This incident besides being able to cause a crisis of lack of clean water can also result in a health crisis. The prolonged dry season is one of the causes of the potential for air pollution such as dust and the spread of air pollution from vehicles.

Based on data from the Ministry of Environment and Forestry (KLHK), the Air Pollution Standard Index (ISPU) in several regions in Indonesia has experienced an increase that has a bad impact. ISPU scores in Pekanbaru City, Dumai City, Bengkalis Regency, Rokan Hilir Regency, Palembang City, North Jakarta City, Central Jakarta City, Surabaya City, Serang City, and Manado City were observed PM10 had a Medium value. However, in 3 DKI Jakarta areas such as East Jakarta City, South Jakarta City, and West Jakarta City, the ISPU values ​​were not healthy.

The impact of poor air quality will cause respiratory problems and irritation to the eyes. In this case, there is a need to prevent the exposure of air pollution to the body so that people are encouraged to use masks as a precautionary measure to avoid air pollution.
