How bad is the pollution in Beijing?

Posted by Nanette Liang 5 years 11 months ago

While everyone tells me "Oh it's getting better" I follow the pollution indexes and during last summer, it was still often in the red! My daughter has very mild asthma.


We were there 3 years ago from mid June to mid July. The air quality only started to be bad in the last 10 days we were there. My kids did not have any reaction to the air quality though. Hope this helps.

It is there - we tracked it with I phone apps and compared with other cities . But... we moved around in 100 f heat in June and were just fine. Our daughter with mild asthma was fine. For three weeks. We are both MDs and were scare to death before trip. But it was just fine.
PS do not drink water from faucet.
