Os moradores da capital chinesa foram aconselhados a manter-se dentro de casa devido ao grau de poluição do ar, que atingiu, mais uma vez, níveis considerados perigosos e que não deverão dissipar-se tão cedo, devido à ausência de vento na região.

Segundo a embaixada americana, desta vez os níveis atingiram um valor vinte vezes superior ao recomendado pela Organização Mundial de Saúde num período de 24 horas.   

A Air China foi obrigada a cancelar 14 voos domésticos de ou para o aeroporto de Pequim pela falta de visibilidade. O aeroporto na cidade oriental de Qingdao foi mesmo obrigado a fechar e a cancelar 20 voos e há também registo de, pelo menos, 11 estradas cortadas.

O agravamento dos níveis de poluição coincide com maior migração sazonal de pessoas do mundo, com 10 milhões de chineses a viajarem pelo país para comemorar o ano novo, a 10 de fevereiro.
