It's giving me respiratory problems.

I'm worried I might need to go to the doctor.

Don't waste time and money. He will tell you to stay indoors and drink more water.

P.S.: I'm also coughing for a week now.

I am a smoker so it would be slightly ironic if I were to be worrying about my own health due to the haze. Just concerned for my wife and daughter.

To think I moved them from Manila to Singapore for a better life including air quality!

Frankly, It's not bothering me at all and I don't have aircon so the windows stay open 24/7. What DOES bother me is SMOG. ala LA or Mexico City or even Washington DC at certain times during the summer months. That shit is TOXIC as well as being uncomfortable especially when it's 102° F in the shade!.

Is this just a different way of measuring says it peaked at over 224 ?
