Hebei had severe air pollution over 70 days in 2013, report says

Hebei province had suffered severe air pollution every one day out of five in 2013 due to excessive emissions, Xinhua news agency reported Wednesday, citing data from the provincial environmental protection bureau. Air quality in the province could reach China’s ambient air quality standard in only 35.3 percent of the days last year, it said. Cities in the province occupy 5 to 7 of the ten positions on the “Chinese cities with worst air quality” list which is published every month by the national environmental authority, the report noted.
