Delhi s air quality poor stubble contribution in pollution may increase
| Saturday | 17th October, 2020
The city recorded an air quality index (AQI) of 263 at 10 am.
A senior scientist at the India Meteorological Department (IMD) said the maximum wind speed was 10 kilometers per hour on Friday.
The wind direction is expected to be north-north westerly on Saturday, which is likely to increase the impact of stubble burning on Delhi's air quality.
Air quality is expected to improve further to the lower end of the poor category by Sunday, SAFAR said.
With Delhi-NCR bracing for months of poor air quality, experts have warned that high levels of air pollution can aggravate the COVID-19 situation.
