(Sham Shui Po HK, 7:00 PM HKT)

PM2.5 are tiny particles less than 2.5 millionths of a metre in size. They are so small that when you breath in, they can pass directly through your lungs into your blood, and then around your body to organs including the brain.

Past 24-hours PM2.5  

There is strong evidence linking PM2.5 pollution levels to heart disease, cancer, strokes, and COPD.
