PUTRAJAYA, Sept 22 — All 296 schools in Kuala Lumpur closed last Thursday and Friday due to the haze situation will resume classes tomorrow (September 23), Federal Territory Education Department director Maznah Abu Bakar said.

In a statement released today, she said the Air Pollutant Index (API) at the Batu Muda and Cheras stations at 5pm today (Sunday) showed readings of below 200 and a declining trend.

“Updates will be provided from time to time,” she said.

The API reading between 0 and 50 is categorised as good, 51 to 100 (moderate), 101 to 200 (unhealthy), 201 to 300 (very unhealthy) and 300 or above (hazardous). — Bernama
