A health warning was issued here yesterday morning because of the haze covering Malaysia, Singapore and southern Thailand, caused by the burning of fields in Indonesia and Sumatra. Over 400 fires were picked up by satellite yesterday. The old, young and anyone with a respiratory disease warned to stay indoors or wear a mask if you have to go outside. A reading of 120 is classed as dangerous, yesterday in Phuket it was 127. Don't know what the reading is yet today.
Even with all the doors and windows closed it feels like someone is trying to strangle me. Apparently the hospitals are swamped with people having breathing difficulties.
I love my tropical island, but wish i was elsewhere at the moment. Hopefully the wind will pick up and blow it away soon.
