I am a local here and I didn't really know the air was that polluted. The Smog in 2016 or 2017 from Indonesia has cause more and more pollution rapidly. I moved to the U.S about a year ago and boy the air quality over there was A-OKAY, I have no more stuffy nose and my throat started to get better after years and years of coughing. I visited Vietnam frequently and the first time I got back, after a week or so. The disease was chasing after me, I ended up having a terrible fever and didn't get to spend a lot of time with my relatives. Now that I'm moving back here, the air quality is getting worse and worse. I started having an idea of having an air purifier inside my room and they aren't cheap over here compare to the U.S, The PM2.5 is pretty high over here so I'm hoping to get that air purifier ASAP.

A good alternatieve would be if people in HCM start using electric bikes. You already see them in several Vietnam cities, like Hanoi or smaller towns like Hoi Ann. Bikes in HCN are really killing, pollution and noise is terrible
