AQI remained in very poor category

Let us tell you that due to the dense smog of the capital Delhi throughout the day, the people of the capital had to bear the brunt of pollution. This situation may worsen further, due to which the capital may completely become a chamber of poisonous gas in the coming days. Delhi’s overall average AQI continued to remain in the very poor category on Thursday, while the air pollution index (AQI) crossed 400 in the severe category in many areas.
