New Delhi’s air quality plummeted again on Friday. and a thick haze of toxic smog hung over India’s capital due to a drop in temperature and wind speed, along with a spike in the burning of crop waste in the surrounding farmlands.
The haze reduced visibility and the Air Quality Index (AQI) hit 461 on a scale of 500, according to the federal pollution control board. This level of pollution means the air will affect healthy people and seriously impact those with existing diseases.
New Delhi, often ranked the world’s most polluted capital, faces extremely bad air in winter due to the crop stubble burning, emissions from transport, coal-fired plants outside the city and other industrial emissions, open garbage burning and dust.
