[Real-time news/comprehensive report]China’s sandstorms once again harmed neighboring countries. South Korea was attacked in the middle of the month, and the whole area was covered by yellow dust. The country was once again victimized yesterday and today. South Korean authorities pointed out that the concentrations of PM10 and PM2.5 are serious everywhere. Exceeding standards, the health of the people across the country is threatened.

According to the Yonhap News Agency, as of 7 am today, the average PM10 concentration in Seoul, the capital of South Korea, reached 217 micrograms per cubic meter, and in Gunsan City, Jeollabuk-do, the average PM10 concentration reached 973 micrograms per cubic meter. For comparison, many countries All set the safety concentration limit at tens of micrograms per cubic meter, while in some parts of South Korea it is as high as nearly 1,000 micrograms, which obviously exceeds the limit by dozens of times.

The South Korean Meteorological Agency has issued PM10 warnings for most parts of the country and issued PM2.5 warnings for Busan City, Gwangju City, Chungcheongnam-do, Jeollabukdo, Jeollanam-do, Gyeongsangnam-do and Jeju-do.

Allegedly, high-emission vehicles are prohibited from passing through the above-mentioned areas from 6 am to 9 pm today, coal-fired power plants are closed, and construction sites are prohibited as air quality improvement measures.

As one of the most severely desertified countries in the world, sandstorms in China are regarded as typical “man-made natural disasters.” Long-term human activities in the area, such as cutting trees and excessive reclamation, have led to desertification of the land. Once weather activities are coordinated, sandstorms can easily be triggered. Not only will it affect the country, but it will also bring harm to neighboring countries.
