Beijing smog halts children's playground

December 20, 2016

Winter lasts about 100 days in Beijing, but it's smoggy on most days, and the smog often reaches hazardous levels. 

“My playground has been losing money, I barely make any profit.” said Mr. Yang, owner of a playground in the eastern suburbs of Beijing, “I could get maybe ten guests if there’s no smog, but maybe only one guest if there’s smog.”
