New Delhi, 12th November: An alert has been issued after India’s toxic fog has turned towards Pakistan.
Baaghi TV: According to reports, the increasing toxic fog in the northern part of India has now turned to Pakistan.
Indian media quoted the Central Indian Air Quality Monitoring Agency (SAFAR) as saying that the air quality index in northern India has been above 475 for the past two days.
A score of 50 or less on this index with a score from zero (0) to 500 means “clean air”. A score higher than this indicates pollution.
An atmosphere with a score of 500 on the Air Quality Index is considered to be so toxic and dangerous that breathing for too long can lead to death.
Traditionally, Indian farmers have been blamed for dangerously toxic atmospheres. However, environmentalists say the Indian capital, Delhi, alone has more than 10 million vehicles, more than the total number of vehicles in Mumbai, Chennai and Kolkata.
