This is the worst haze in Singapore’s history that caused its main air pollution index to hit a measurement of 401 at noon on Friday, going higher than its previous highs of 371 on Thursday and 321 on Wednesday, both of which were also record readings for the country. Measurements such as these are classified as “hazardous” and can exacerbate respiratory ailments in people.
