New Delhi: Amid the COVID-19 pandemic, Delhiites are forced to face the deteriorating air quality as Delhi’s air pollution level has been continuously rising for the last few weeks.

Peoples who come out for a morning walk and exercise are complaining about the pollution levels. “I am a regular walker and I noticed that there is a problem with breathing for the last few days. The comfort level, which we had a month ago, is down,” a moring walker has told ANI.
Another daily jogger says, “Even I am facing breathing problems and a sore throat.”

Due to the pollution, the COVID-recovered patients and those with asthma are most at risk. “For asthmatic persons, pollution is poison. Doctors advise them not to come out of homes. It’s serious, the government should take serious action,” a Delhiite says.

The Delhi government has claimed that it is taking concrete steps to curb the pollution.
