After taking various measures the Government of Delhi was capable of controlling the air pollution in the national capital but now the air quality of Delhi went into a severe category once again. People of the state are currently living in a gas chamber as they are not able to breathe fresh air. So let’s get into the article to check out the severe condition of air quality in Delhi.
According to the data from the Central Pollution Control Board (CPCB), the majority of locations in Delhi have an air quality index (AQI) of above 400 which is a very bad condition.
We can also see a blanket of smog in various areas of the national capital, including AIIMS, Kartavya Path, DND, and Barapulla. It is said that Anand Vihar was recorded at 407, Jahangirpuri at 402, Mundka at 408, Okhla Phase-2 at 424, Punjabi Bagh at 411, RK Puram at 401, Vivek Vihar at 438, and in Wazirpur at 423.
The air quality in Delhi showed marginal improvement following heavy rain last Sunday but the AQI started to drop from Thursday.
For those who are not aware, an AQI between zero and 50 is considered good, 51 and 100 satisfactory, 101 and 200 moderate, 201 and 300 poor, 301 and 400 very poor, 401 and 450 severe, and above 450 severe-plus.
The present condition of Delhi is very difficult for people with diseases like asthma and it will also create various health-related issues for a healthy person as well.
We recommend you to avoid going out from your home unnecessarily and try to use public transportation as the smaller number of vehicles on the road will help us to reduce air pollution.
