Lahore’s air quality remained ‘hazardous’ with an air quality ranking of 447, according to Air Visual’s Air Quality Index (AQI) list. The Punjab capital is ranked second most polluted city in the world, according to Air Visual, which records air pollution levels across the globe in real time. According to Air Now, “the entire population is more likely to be affected” at hazardous level.
Government officials blame the smog on crop burnings in India. Experts, however, say that the situation is caused by pollution in the country.
