Carbon monoxide in Moscow is 4.8 times above the admissible maximum

In Moscow, the concentration of carbon monoxide in the air exceeds the maximum admissible level in 5 times.
      
      Pollution in Moscow, caused by thick, acrid smoke from forest and peat-bog fires east of the city, continues to worsen, with carbon monoxide at 4.8 times above the admissible maximum, the citys environmental protection department said on its website.
      
      Emergency crews are battling 558 fires covering 179,596 hectares (693 square miles) across Russia, the Emergency Situations Ministry said on its website today. So far this year, fires have scorched 729,761 hectares. The fires have killed at least 52 people, the Health Ministry said.
      
      The forecasts say the situation will stay the same at least though next Tuesday.
