With the holidays around the corner, people are bidding adieu to the year 2023, and on the other side, the capital is terrorized by the rising air tainting. The city has been in an alarming situation with deteriorating air quality.
The industrial areas have been heavily affecting the air quality. On one side the country’s infrastructure is booming and the city’s AQI is at its severe stage. With all of this, the city folks are still running from place to place; juggling things between home to office.
As the city is working under high alert AQI, here are some ways to avoid and protect us from being affected by the polluted air.
Here are ways to protect ourselves from smog and any breathing issues
Wearing a mask can be a great solution
The primary step to protect yourself from any respiratory problem, is to cover your mouth with a scarf or a cloth mask. The mask can be an effective measure to minimize the chances of any breathing issues.
Avoid traveling in fuel vehicles
Instead of taking your vehicle on the road or booking a taxi; one must opt for a subway or e-rickshaws (small distances) that cause less pollution to no pollution.
Carpooling is a great alternative
In recent times, carpooling has become a dynamic alternative for traveling. Less usage of fuel will directly help in reducing the carbon being released into the environment. The most significant example is the odd-even policy that has been implemented in Delhi-NCR roads.
