Delhi Air Quality Continues To Be In ‘Severe’ Category

Air Pollution In Delhi

Delhi residents faced heavy smog on Monday as the national capital continued to remain in the ‘severe’ air quality index category.

The Air Quality Index was at 472 in the ‘severe’ category at ITO. Air Quality Index (AQI) is at 484 in Anand Vihar, 470 in Mundka, 465 Okhla Phase 2 and 468 in Wazirpur, all in ‘severe category’, as per Central Pollution Control Board (CPCB).

With Diwali around the corner, the Delhi Government had already banned the sale and bursting of firecrackers in the city to prevent further deterioration of air quality.

Air Quality between 0-50 is marked good, 51-100 is satisfactory, 101-200 is moderate, 201-300 is very poor and 401-500 is considered severe or hazardous. If experts are to be believed, people with breathing problems should prefer to work from home to avoid further deterioration of lungs.

A resident living near Okhla said, “Being an asthmatic patient, it is getting difficult for me to breathe in this city. The situation gets worse in the Covid-19 pandemic. Hence, I prefer to work from home.” (ANI)
