Delhi air quality deteriorates to ‘very poor’; only rain can bring relief
| Monday | 11th February, 2019
“This return of very poor air quality in the national capital can be attributed to reduced wind speed since Sunday night.
“The air quality will improve and remain constant once the temperatures begin rising in March,” Palawat said.
The overall air quality index (AQI) of Delhi at 4 p.m. on Monday was recorded at 309 (“ery poor”), against Saturday’s “moderate”.
He added that the air quality in Delhi will oscillate between poor and very poor for the rest of February and only rain would be able to improve the situation to moderate or satisfactory.
New Delhi: As predicted, the overall air quality of Delhi and adjoining areas deteriorated to “very poor” on Monday, after days of improved “moderate” air caused by last Thursday’s rain and hailstorm, which washed away the pollutants across the city.
