Guangdong Department of Environmental officials announced last week that the province’s air quality in the first quarter was nearly 10 percent higher than the same period last year.

According to officials, 14.4 days were reported as pollution days, including slight pollution and moderate pollution. No serious or extremely serious pollution was recorded in the first quarter. Guangzhou eighteenth and Shenzhen was seventh on the province’s list of good air quality.

The Pearl River Delta recorded 48 micrograms per cubic meter of PM 2.5, while the PM 10 was 69 micrograms per cubic meter. In the first quarter, the Pearl River Delta had no serious or extremely serious pollution on record.

Nine Guangdong cities were listed in the national top ten list of best air quality by the Ministry of Environmental Protection. Huizhou ranked third after Lhasa and Haikou. Shenzhen, Zhuhai and Zhongshan ranked seventh, ninth and tenth respectively.

According to Guangzhou Environmental Protection Bureau officials, Guangdong cities usually have very good air quality in the first quarter of every year because of the lack of rain and high temperatures.
