Print Friendly, PDF & Email

On Sunday, Lahore City’s Air Quality Index (AQI) reached a concerning level of 155, making it the 7th most polluted city in the world. The increase in AQI has caused the air quality to deteriorate once again in the city. The rise in sunlight this morning indicated a spike in heat and pollution intensity. The current temperature in Lahore City has already risen to 29 degrees Celsius and is expected to reach as high as 38 degrees Celsius later today. 

The humidity level in the air is at 46 percent, with wind speeds reaching 18 kilometers per hour. Unfortunately, the Meteorological Department predicts that there is no possibility of rainfall in the next 24 hours, which could have helped mitigate the situation somewhat. 

The deteriorating air quality in Lahore City is a significant cause for concern. AQI levels above 100 are deemed unhealthy, and levels above 150 are hazardous to human health. The increasing pollution levels can cause respiratory problems, eye irritation, and other health issues. 

It is crucial to take proactive measures to mitigate the situation and protect public health. It is recommended that citizens avoid going outside during peak pollution hours and wear masks when venturing out. Authorities should also take steps to reduce pollution levels by enforcing regulations on industries and vehicles. It is imperative to prioritize public health and take action before the situation worsens.
