People with respiratory problems have been advised to stay indoors and take precautions after air quality worsened in most parts of the county, with Klang Valley recording poor visibility and moderately bad air quality.

The haze caused by the overnight increase of hotspots from 62 to 120 in Sumatra, Indonesia, caused the sky in the Klang Valley and other cities and towns to be overcast.

Most areas around the city as well as certain northern states also recorded a drop in visibility levels. A Meteorological Department spokesman said the haze would 'come and go' as the south-west monsoon winds would blow it over from the burning hotspots in Sumatra.

'Rain can do little to help as the haze may return once the rain is gone,' the spokesman said, adding that the monsoon season was expected to end by late October or early November.
