Air quality in the Mongolian capital city of Ulan Bator has been deteriorating dramatically due to smoke from massive wildfires raging in Russia’s Siberia, authorities said on Monday.

The Mongolian national agency for meteorology and environment monitoring said in a statement that air quality in the capital city had reached very unhealthy levels.

“Today, the average density of PM 2.5 in the city stayed at 151.5 micrograms per cubic meter, which is 15 times above WHO exposure recommendation.

“The northern and central parts of Mongolia, including the capital city, were covered with smokes since the middle of last week.

“The smoke is as a result of the Russia’s Siberian wildfires,” the Agency said.
