The Capital’s AQI was ‘severe’ for six days, starting November 6. Due to a change in wind speeds, Delhi’s air quality had marginally improved on Wednesday and Thursday but scientists have warned that respite from severe pollution will be short-lived.
The air quality in Delhi has deteriorated along with the dip in the mercury. Parts of the national capital are engulfed in a dense layer of fog. Flights and trains have also been cancelled due to low visibility.
