China’s Smog So Bad, a Huge Fire Burns Unnoticed For 3 Hours

Still no bodies.

“Breathing in this air is taking its toll: the Beijing Shijitan Hospital reported treating 20 percent more patients than usual at its respiratory health department. Most of them were coughing and sought treatment for various respiratory illnesses. In addition, official media reports that Beijing’s main children’s hospital has recently seen 9,000 patients per day, a third of them with respiratory diseases.” [Care2.com]

    Thus “smog” must pre-date any industrialization in Beijing.
