AQI or the Air Quality Index is a standard way of calculating the quality of the air. While 0-50 is considered good air quality, it keeps on decreasing as the numbers increase. Delhi has been juggling anywhere between 350+ and 800+ in the past few days and it has been disastrous for the city.

As the AQI rises, it also increases the risk of public health. Polluted air can affect your body in the following ways:

  • Eye Problems
  • Bronchitis
  • Asthma
  • Heart Diseases
  • Skin Irritation and even Lung Cancer

Not only are these diseases an outcome of severe air pollution, but if a person is already suffering from them, the air quality makes it worse for them. If the need arises, such patients should be hospitalized and kept under medical care.
