New Delhi: Today is the morning after Diwali, but last night the air in many cities including Delhi turned toxic. Due to the burning of firecrackers in the sky, the pollution level suddenly became dangerous. It is being said that the effect of this will be that in the coming days the air of the capital will become even more toxic. Although the noise of firecrackers was less in Delhi last night, but the intensity of pollution remained high. Anand Vihar’s AQI on Diwali evening – 398 ‘Very poor’ whereas, 1 day before Diwali, Anand Vihar’s AQI – 375 was ‘Very poor’.

That is, the level of pollution increased on the night of Diwali and reached the very poor category. The air quality has reached the poor category in most areas of Delhi. More dangerous than this was that of Noida – where the level of pollution in the air reached the category of severe. Last night, Noida was wrapped in a blanket of mist. The tall buildings of the city were seen wrapped in a blanket of smog. Noida’s AQI – 342 was ‘very poor’ on Diwali evening. Whereas, AQI of Noida 1 day before Diwali – 309

It was ‘very bad’. At the same time, it is claimed that today the AQI in Noida can go beyond 400. That is, air pollution will reach the category of severe.

Now let us tell you in which category AQI can affect your health. An AQI between zero and 50 is considered ‘good’. Whereas 51 to 100 are considered ‘satisfactory’. While 101 to 200 have been categorized as ‘moderate’ and 201 to 300 in ‘poor’ category. If the AQI of a city is between 301 to 400, then the air there is ‘very bad’. And 401 to 500 are considered ‘serious’.

With the onset of winter, the air quality starts deteriorating in the big cities of the country. The worst hit of pollution falls on the capital Delhi, where the poison in the air dissolves in such a way that it becomes difficult for people to breathe. The pollution in the air increases rapidly even with the crackers that are burst on Diwali.
