The Pollution Control Department and Bangkok Metropolitan Administration held an urgent meeting on Wednesday to discuss fresh efforts to counter health risks posed by smog that continues to blanket the capital.

The authorities have thus far focused on cleaning roads more often, spraying water in the air, creating artificial rain and strictly enforcing laws against vehicle exhaust, but to little avail.

The meeting was participated with all authorities concerned. The outcome of the meeting was not known at time of publication.
