Daily Overview
New Delhi serves as the capital of India and is home to more than 26 million residents in its metro area. In recent days, the city has been choked by smog more than three times the “hazardous” level on the global air quality index. Flights have been cancelled, schools closed, and the government has advised residents to stay indoors. Although New Delhi is known for poor air quality this time of year, this week has been particularly intense due to a mix of weather factors and man-made causes like vehicle pollution, constant city construction, industrial pollution, and crop burning on surrounding farmland.
