Indian capital records worst air day


New Delhi / Amritsar, Oct 13 (EFE/EPA).- Air quality in the Indian capital of New Delhi has hit the hazardous levels, falling into the "very poor" category on Tuesday after months of respite due to the strict nationwide coronavirus lockdown.The significant deterioration in air quality was due to the crop waste burning by farmers in Delhi and its neighboring states that sent a massive cloud of smoke billowing across the northern part of India.A thick haze covered Delhi's skyline as the average air quality index (AQI) was 304 in the morning, which falls in the "very poor" category, according to the Central Pollution Control Board.
