Surprisingly, the people in Alor Setar, where I live, conduct their daily routine as usual despite of the air quality. Food stalls by the road side open for business with their regular and drive by customers present.

They are known as type N95 mask. There are cheaper mask costing around 0.30 cent per mask, but I was made to understand that better quality mask for N95 can go up to RM6 per piece.

The masks are sold in hardware, 7eleven and pharmacy stores. Some people I noticed are also using the surgical mask, priced at RM 1.10 per piece which is not recommended.

Don`t forget to stay indoors and drink plenty of water.
