City's PM2.5 doubled on Spring Festival eve

SHANGHAI'S air was lightly polluted by 2am this morning after a night of firecrackers and fireworks, according to data from the city's environment monitoring center.

After the fireworks celebration last night, the hourly PM2.5 reading stands at around 523 micrograms per cubic meter, or "polluted," early this morning, according to the center.

Though yesterday's air quality reading remains at "good" during daytime, today's reading turns to polluted after the Chinese New Year eve's traditional firecrackers setting.

The peak of pollution was detected between midnight and 1am this morning, with the reading doubled, the center reported.

The center calls on more residents to reduce the setting of fireworks for a better environment.
