If there’s one thing we Delhiites have been battling for a long time, it’s a low Air Quality Index (AQI). The city is often gripped in the cold clutches of smog, making visibility poor and creating respiratory issues for many people. After a long time, there’s some good news that’ll surely delight you all.

A Breath Of Fresh Air | So, ever since the lockdown, Delhi has witnessed relatively cleaner air and on Wednesday, the 8th of July, the AQI stood at the cleanest in the past 3 months. The air quality was in the ‘Good’ category in several parts of the city and we’re certainly breathing easier (quite literally). With a spell of light showers, the AQI dropped down to 44, which is amazing.

But when the AQI was recorded again at 4 PM it had increased to 51 (satisfactory) for the city while the same remained at 44 in Greater Noida and Ghaziabad. The last time AQI was in the ‘Good’ category, it stood at 45 on the 28th of March which was the first week of lockdown. 

Let’s hope we can keep up with this downward trend!
