PART OF MALAYSIA CELEBRATED EID AL-FITR IN HAZE

Unlike previous years, Muslims in some part of Malaysia celebrated Eid-Al-Fitr or Hari Raya shrouded in haze as the API reading reached 145 in Sibu. 
Unhealthy readings were also recorded in Batu Muda, Port Klang, Cheras, Samarahan, Sri Aman, Banting, Petaling Jaya and Putrajaya.
According to report, haze has returned again to Malaysia, with parts of Selangor and Penang recording unhealthy Air Pollutant Index (API) readings yesterday.
Five areas registered unhealthy readings - Port Klang, Kuala Selangor, Shah Alam, Seberang Jaya 2 in Prai of Penang, and Kampong Air Putih in Taiping all registered between 100 and 200 on the API. Port Klang had the highest API of 153 at 6pm.
Most of these pollutants come from sources such as industries, motor vehicles, open burning as well as power generation.
Companies are showing their caring side as they try to help employees cope with the hazy weather.
Pos Malaysia has started providing its 10,000 postmen and courier personnel nationwide with face masks. They connect people so it is important that we take care of them, its spokesman said.
A human resources department staff member said her courier company in Shah Alam distributed three-ply masks to some 1,000 drivers, riders and logistics staff in June.
DeliverEat partner Leong Shir Mein said its crew were given thick filter masks and water bottles, briefed on staying healthy and required to return immediately to the office after every delivery to minimise exposure.
