The air quality in the country improved Monday after dropping to “very unhealthy” levels in some areas over the last few days.

No area nationwide had air quality at “unhealthy” levels as at 6am, according to the Department of Environment (DoE).

The Air Pollutant Index (API) readings released by DoE showed 11 areas with “moderate” Air Pollution Index (API) readings and 41 with “good” readings.

Places with “good” API readings included Kuala Terengganu (24), Kuching (19), Seri Manjung in Perak (21) and Alor Setar (47).

An API reading of zero to 50 is categorised as good; 51 to 100, moderate; 101 to 200, unhealthy; 201 to 300, very unhealthy and 301 and above, hazardous.
