Here is the news article from The New York Times:

The government was poised to call the smog a natural disaster, but some are skeptical about this and feel that the smog is due to pollution. Some are pointing fingers at the coal industries. Schools were cancelled on Monday due to a red alert on the smog levels, but a school still continued to have exams outdoors. The health effects from smog could be extremely detrimental in the long term. The smog should clear by the end of the week, as reported.
