SO2 levels in Wuhan’s vicinity
According to international data supplier Windy’s tracking data on February 8, the density of sulphur dioxide (SO2) emissions in Wuhan, Hubei has reached 1342.27 µg/m3, 16 times the danger threshold of 80 µg/m3.
According to INTELWAVE’s Twitter, SO2 emissions around Wuhan is 1700 µg/m3, more than twice the levels of its runner-up, Chongqin (800 µg/m3).
This caused some to speculate that it is a sign of mass cremations of victims of the deadly disease – to generate that amount, an estimated 14,000 corpses would need to be burned.
