Beijing stores to display air quality stats

From Xinhua:

BEIJING, Nov. 10 — The Sanitation Bureau of Beijing’s Haidian District announced on November 6 that, from the next day onward, the area’s busiest supermarkets and department stores would display real time information on their indoor air quality during holidays and at weekends, the first initiative of its kind.

Zheng Yang, from the bureau’s Sanitation Supervision Institute, said levels of carbon monoxide, carbon dioxide, formaldehyde and bacteria, as well as temperature and humidity measurements, will be visible at Haidian store entrances.

The scheme, conducted jointly by the bureau and Haidian District Disease Prevention and Control Center, will enable supervisors to identify when standards are not met and advise stores on changes that need to be made.
