India’s capital New Delhi was enveloped in heavy, toxic smog Sunday, the worst levels in recent years which lead to diversion of flights. The recommended World Health Organisation safe daily maximum reading for pollutants in the atmosphere is 25 but it hit 810 micro grams per cubic metre Sunday morning. Locals complained of sore eyes and throat along with visibility issues while driving.
Politicians blamed each other for failing to tackle the crisis. Due to this issue schools have been ordered to close as well.
