In Mumbai, as the monsoon rains return and the winds become calmer, the air quality in the city is getting worse. An organization called Safar has been keeping records, and they’ve noted that the air quality in the city has been in the “bad” category for several days.
This means that there are more harmful dust particles in the air, especially PM 2.5 and PM 10 particles, which are not good for health. For instance, on Monday evening in Vile parle, the air quality index was measured at 318, indicating very hazardous air. It’s not safe to go outside in such conditions.
Other areas like Mazgaon, Colaba, Andheri, Malad, Paral, and Mulund also experienced very poor air quality on Monday. So, people in these areas should be cautious and avoid unnecessary outdoor activities when the air quality is this bad.
