You need to have the air quality index measured with widely accepted or adaptable index as China do for Shanghai. Otherwise he information is not reliable.I don't think AQI of Yangon is not as hazard as Shanghai.
Here is the AQI scale and definition:
AQI Air Pollution - Level Health Implications
0–50 Excellent No health implications.
51–100 Good - Few hypersensitive individuals should reduce outdoor exercise.
101–150 Lightly Polluted - Slight irritations may occur, individuals with breathing or heart problems should reduce outdoor exercise.
151–200 Moderately - Polluted Slight irritations may occur, individuals with breathing or heart problems should reduce outdoor exercise.
201–300 Heavily Polluted - Healthy people will be noticeably affected. People with breathing or heart problems will experience reduced endurance in activities. These individuals and elders should remain indoors and restrict activities.
300+ Severely Polluted - Healthy people will experience reduced endurance in activities. There may be strong irritations and symptoms and may trigger other illnesses. Elders and the sick should remain indoors and avoid exercise. Healthy individuals should avoid out door activities.

The Air Quality Index (AQI) is not measured in %, rather in the scale of 0-to-500 (in USA). Read more about it in Wikipedia, EPA or other websites.
