“Breaking News: Delhi’s Air Quality Deteriorates, LG Saxena and CM Kejriwal to Meet”

the air quality in Delhi-NCR has become very bad, crossing a dangerous level on a scale from 0 to 500. This is happening in many areas and it’s a serious problem. Because the air is so polluted  schools in Delhi have been closed for two days to protect the health of students and prevent them from breathing in harmful air This is done to keep everyone safe and healthy while the air quality is so poor.

Today November 3 in Delhi-NCR the air quality became even worse. It went beyond a danger level marked as 400 on a scale that goes up to 500  This is very concerning because the air quality in many areas reached extremely unhealthy levels. the air people are breathing is full of pollution and can be harmful to their health.

Several places in Delhi like Anand Vihar station Punjabi Bagh station and Mundka station had very poor air quality, which is measured using the AQI (Air Quality Index) and it was in the severe category meaning it was really bad and above 400 on the AQI scale.

Because of this, the government took some actions. They stopped non-essential construction work and they closed primary schools in the city. Also they put restrictions on the use of diesel and petrol vehicles in and around Delhi. All these steps were taken to address the serious air pollution problem in the area.

The government is saying that the pollution in Delhi and the surrounding areas might get even worse in the next 15-20 days. This is because there are more fires in nearby farms and the weather is getting colder with less wind to blow away the pollution.

Right now a smoky haze is covering the sky in the capital and it’s likely to stay that way for a few more days. This means the air quality could become even more harmful for people’s health in the coming weeks.

PM2.5 is a type of air pollution made up of tiny particles that are smaller than 2.5 micrometres in size. The safe limit for PM2.5 in the air is 60 micrograms per cubic meter.

in various places the concentration of PM2.5 is much higher sometimes 7 to 8 times above the safe limit. This is a big problem because high levels of PM2.5 can cause respiratory and health issues.

One of the major reasons for this high PM2.5 pollution is the burning of crop residue or stubble. On November 2 this stubble burning contributed to 25% of the PM2.5 pollution in Delhi and it might even go up to 35% today.  this agricultural practice is a significant source of air pollution in the region and is making the air quality much worse, which can harm people’s health.
