China has issued its first-ever national red alert for severe fog, after around two dozen of its cities across the country reported persistent air pollution problems.

While a handful of city authorities had raised the pollution warning to the highest level, Tuesday China’s national observatory did so, signalling a first-ever red alert for a phenomenon that has come to be known as the “airpocalypse.”

The new red alert has been raised in parts of the Beijing-Tianjin-Hebei region, as well as in the provinces of Henan, Shandong, Anhui and Jiangsu, state news agency Xinhua reported. A total of 24 cities are currently on red alert for smog, while an additional 21, including Beijing and Tianjin, are on the less-severe, orange alert.
