      According to Changde City Environment Monitor Station on February 26, Changde city’s air quality during the Chinese New Year was better than that of 2017. Data showed that the average daily concentration of PM 10 was down 33.7% year-on-year, and the average daily concentration of PM 2.5 declined by 26.7%. Sulfur Dioxide was down 44.4%. Especially on New Year’s Eve and the first day of the Chinese New Year, the air quality indexes were down 42.3% and 56.4% respectively. Firework burning easily pollutes the air quality. So, the municipal government banned public firework burning before the spring festival which provided the citizen a healthier environment to celebrate our traditional festival.
