Penang island remained enveloped in a veritable smog on Wednesday with the Air Pollutant Index A-P-I readings breaching very unhealthy levels of above 200.

All 162 schools in the Barat Daya and Timur Laut districts were forced to close while a number of flights at Penang International Airport were delayed.
