Delhi-NCR gasps for breath, air pollution still 'severe'

Dec 27, 2018 22:11 IST

Residents in Delhi-NCR gasped for breath as the air quality turned severe again on Thursday. Data by the Central Pollution Control Board showed the overall air quality index at 403 in the 'severe' category. The overall PM 2.5 levels was recorded at 322 and PM 10 level at 485 in Delhi, almost 13 times more than what the World Health Organization considers safe. The Delhi govt has ordered fire dept officials to sprinkle water from high rise buildings to settle dust particles.
