PUTRAJAYA, March 31 — The enforcement of the first phase of movement control order (MCO) on March 18 until yesterday has not only helped to break the chain of Covid-19, it has in fact reduce environmental pollution as well, said Environment Minister Datuk Tuan Ibrahim Tuan Man.
This followed a reduction of activities such as vehicle exhaust emission, industrial stack emission and open burning,” he said. He said a detailed analysis by the Department of Environment (DOE) on several main parameters namely nitrogen dioxide (NO2), sulphur dioxide (SO2), carbon monoxide (CO) and fine particles of 2.5 microns (PM2.5) found their levels have fallen significantly.
Tuan Ibrahim said the monitoring was conducted at the air quality monitoring stations in Batu Muda and Cheras in Kuala Lumpur as well as Putrajaya. “All three areas recorded marked drop of between 55 to 68 per cent for NO2; 17 to 34 per cent for SO2; six to 15 per cent for CO; and six to 14 per cent for PM2.5,” he said in a statement here today.
Tuan Ibrahim said apart from that, DOE also expanded the analysis to air quality monitoring stations at several major cities such as Shah Alam, Ipoh, Penang, Kuantan, Seremban, Melaka, Johor Bahru, Kuching and Kota Kinabalu for the same period.“The findings also showed significant fall in each parameter with NO2 reduced between 11 to 62 per cent, SO2 between five to 22 per cent, CO between two to 25 per cent and PM2.5 between two to 23 per cent,” he said.
The latest hourly Air Pollutant Index (API) is available on DOE website athttp://apims.doe.gov.my/v2/or by downloading the official smart phone application, MyIPU via Android Google Play and at Apple App Store.Tuan Ibrahim also advised the people not to carry out opening burning to reduce the risk of fires in the hot and dry weather now.
Members of the public can report cases of open burning to the Fire and Rescue Department at 999 or DOE’s toll free line at 1-800-88-2727. — Bernama Read more: Malay Mail »
I agree!!!!!!! OMG! Like Wow! What great capability this minister has. Is he taking credit for better air quality? Asking for a friend. I don't think anyone need the Environment Minister to tell them that 🤦♂️ Our ministers’ insights to the obvious needs full recognition. Where would we, the rakyat, be without their daily parting of wisdom. KJ must look like a rocket scientist in the weekly cabinet meeting Malaysia
bila otak dah x leh terima walau sedikit kebaikan sedangkan apa yang dia cakap tu ada betulnya. bila kurg kereta diatas jalan raya.. asap2 yang kurg menyebabkan udara akan sihat do you actually agree with it or nope Waiting for Minister of Transport to chime in and say that there's no traffic jam since first phase of MCO too 🤣
Napela bt statemen bodo ni. Mmg la udara bersih sbb org tk kerja. Bila org tk kerja problem lg maha besar dari udara terlampau bersih. Buat la kerja lain yg lg penting. Statement ni tk penting sbb beroq atas pokok tu pun tau pasal ni Can u pls tell us something we don't know...we don't need to be told about common sense issues
Yes, and less logging in Kelantan. Your party not happy. Better air quality? Yeap. Have you seen the amounts of rubbish we throw out during this MCO? He must be going nuts staying home, with wife nagging. Now we see the consequences, air quality n Rina Must be watching the blue skies in China to prompt him to say this. Saya intelligent kan! Dumb ass
OK , we should have this MCO more often. The air quality improved, Crime rate are down as well and best of all no more meetings and parliament sessions. This one copy from other news. Anything technical and using brain a bit? You’re so clever. Please say more clever things. Impressive. Of course when there is less vehicles on the road.
Kita kena bersyukur dgn virus COVID-19 ni. Is that what you're trying to say? POINT Of coz la..less car on the road Such an intelligent individual ! Wow I’m impressed ! All U can come up with is better air quality ?! Seriously ? Menteri Alam Sekitar.. Kasi chance la, nak try jugak score point time covid19 nie..
Macai ph bodoh lain mcm. Dia cumi berita tahu kualiti udara saja. This moron is talking like he's from tadika. What the hell does he want. Just showed his low level intelligence. Oh ok. My student in std 3 told me so ... Thankiu minister....syukur mesia ada mentri lam skita What Minister are u? Air Minister?
From Yeo Bee Yin to this. Hidup melayu. RM52K per month of tax payers money for this extraordinary statement....🙄 Who cares Facepalm Sejak u jadi menteri? Next he'll say much less cars on the road Air 2015? ridicules movie No shit Sherlock South west monsoon is from April to November. Hence we'll expect the haze in a month or so.
Everyone knows, he hasn't been polluting it. Can't think, pocket too kosong. Tadika kid also shud b able to tell 🤦♂️ Good air quality does not stop covid-19; social distancing, personal hygiene, stayathome, sanitising and washing hands do. It does not take a genius to know that air quality is good bcos there's so little traffic, factories are closed AND lesser garbage coming fr the lebais.
Copy cat Then what do we do with that info A typical class a1 politician .. he says like *he* is the one who has improved our air quality. Sigh! Can’t tell. Stuck at home. Oh wow. Who knew!?!?! What is Tuan Ibrahim trying to prove? His intelligence? Saying something which is obvious.
