Delhi Pollution Update: The Air Quality Index (AQI) of Delhi stood at 357 at 9 AM on Wednesday. It has slipped back into the 'very poor' category after strong winds carried the much pollution away two days ago.
The air quality index (AQI) of the city stood at 307, down from 349 the previous day, both under the 'very poor' category. Winds up to 20 Km/h gushed through the city, blowing away pollutants.
Owing to the 'very poor' Delhi AQI, Trucks carrying non-essential items will continue to be barred from entry into Delhi. Meanwhile, the employees of Delhi govt, autonomous bodies and corporations will work from home till November 26th.
Diversions of heavy and medium goods vehicles from Chilla, DND, Kalindi Kunj, Ashok Nagar and Jhandupura borders to other places via Delhi have been changed.
Delhi's air quality remained in the 'very poor' category for the third consecutive day on Tuesday, with the air quality index(AQI) being recorded at 396.
In the last 5 years, school shutdowns due to air pollution in Delhi have cost the kids of Delhi and surrounding areas of NCR, at least 26 days of education.
The average Air Quality Index (AQI) in Delhi stood at 341 at 8 AM. Experts say that this number is likely to go up today, most likely to the 'hazardous' level with the use of Diwali Crackers.
Based on the data at a specific location, the Skymet AQI app will also provide advisories, historical (hourly and weekly), and forecast data of the PMs and personalised health recommendations.
From every known science and engineering angle, the concept of vacuuming air in the open is not a practical solution. In the open where every puff of air is replaced with another puff of air in no time, with equal or sometimes more pollution, this effort to clean air is an illogical operation.
The city also recorded nine 'severe' air days this November, the maximum number in the month in four years.
