Because of pollution, air quality is degrading almost everywhere, but, at several place, the air is so contaminated it makes breathing laborious. According to the journal Deutsche Welle, from Shanghai to Beijing, the smog periods kill people by the thousands every day.

It makes perfect sense, but why is this so shocking?
