Chinese primary school sets up an inflatable anti-smog gym to protect pupils from toxic air pollution
While half a billion Chinese are gasping for breath in hazardous air quality, one school in China has come up with a solution to protect its pupils from toxic smog.
Huaxing Primary School, in northern China's Shijiazhuang city, has set up a huge inflatable sports hall so that children can have their PE lessons inside while there is smog outside, reports People's Daily Online.
Pictures taken yesterday shows dozens of pupils jogging and playing badminton inside Jiakai Sports Hall, which is equipped with an air-purifying system.
According to the report, the white dome measures 164 feet long and 66 feet wide. The air quality, temperature and humidity inside the dome are strictly monitored.

The uk would ... give the kids more smog to kill them quicker as it would be the cheapest way to end their suffering from smog.
