In order to measue air quality index (AQI) of Ulaanbaatar city, totally 11 monitoring stations are placed in different areas of the capital. On the above picture Misheel expo shopping center area`s AQI shows 33 points, which is the lowest. But AQI indicator which placed in near Misheel expo has been broken, that`s why it shows low numbers.
Due to World health organization recommendation, AQI must not exceed 501 and if indicator reaches higher than 501, polluted air causes unhealthy conditions.
Doctors recommend that in the morning and in the evening, residents have use masks (specially for children) when going outside.
