Delhi’s weather has turned very bad after Diwali. The Air Quality Index (AQI) has reached the critical category. It has increased the problem of breathing and itchy eyes of people. In such a situation, AIIMS director Randeep Guleria warned that contamination can increase corona cases. He said the air in Delhi has become more harmful than cigarette smoke. Due to pollution, people’s lives have also been greatly reduced.
Studies have shown that the life expectancy of Delhi residents has been significantly reduced. In a special conversation with an English channel, the AIIMS director said that the severity of Kovid increases significantly in contaminated areas. Patients have more inflammation in the lungs. Due to which the crown case may increase. At the same time, the air in Delhi is causing a sore throat, burning eyes and shortness of breath. Especially has increased the problem of the elderly, young children and seriously ill patients who have recently recovered from the crown.
Dr Randeep Guleria said on Friday that every year during Diwali and winter, stubble, firecrackers and smog are burned in Delhi and throughout the Ganges region of northern India. It has a great impact on health. The director of AIIMS said that we have done a study. In this, we saw that whenever the level of contamination is high, after a few days, the respiratory problem increases in children and adults. It is true that pollution increases the respiratory problem. According to doctors, patients come to all hospitals in Delhi due to pollution.
