SINGAPORE - Although air quality has improved slightly, hazy conditions continue to persist today.

At 10am, the 24-hour Pollutant Standards Index (PSI) reading was at 113-136, the low end of the unhealthy (101-200) range. The three-hour PSI stood at 69.

According to the National Environment Agency's last update on Tuesday, the 24-hour PSI for Wednesday is expected to be in the mid to high sections of the unhealthy range and may drop gradually to the low end of the range if less dense haze is blown in.

Healthy persons should reduce prolonged or strenuous outdoor physical exertion.

The elderly, pregnant women and children should minimise prolonged or strenuous outdoor physical exertion, while those with chronic lung or heart disease should avoid prolonged or strenuous outdoor physical exertion.

Persons who are not feeling well, especially the elderly and children, and those with chronic heart or lung conditions, should seek medical attention.
