With the haze conditions getting worse and worse by the day, Malaysians are finding all kinds of ways to cope with the polluted air. Malaysia was even announced as the most polluted country in the world yesterday (18 Sept) and we’re just hoping and praying that things will start looking up soon.

They were reported to have crossed the 300 mark in their API reading on 17 September and are also reported by Bernama to experience a shortage of water supplies.

“This face mask doesn’t help lahhh!!! It’s only a physical barrier between the mouth and nose of the wearer and potential contaminants in the immediate environment,” one netizen commented.

“Wrong mask… Stop giving people a false sense of security…” another netizen commented.

Meanwhile, Malaysian citizens are finding it hard to purchase N95 masks as they have almost been sold out!
