Smog in the Indian capital, killing one person per hour
According to the Xinhua News Agency, according to the Global Burden of Disease Research, outdoor air pollution has become the fifth leading cause of death among Indians, after high blood pressure, indoor pollution, smoking and malnutrition. The number of deaths from outdoor air pollution has increased from 100,000 in 2000 to 620,000 in 2010. In the capital New Delhi, an average person died every hour because of air pollution.
The Hindustan Times reported that one-third of India’s population lives in an environment where harmful gases such as nitrogen dioxide and sulfur dioxide and particulate matter (PM10) are seriously exceeded.
‘About half of India’s airborne particulate matter (PM2.5) levels exceed the standard.’ Chandra Bhushan, deputy director of the Indian Centre for Environmental and Science, told reporters. The monitoring results show that India only has air quality standards in two cities in southern Kerala. The green coverage rate in New Delhi is very large and the industrial area is also far from the urban area. Environmental experts believe that air quality in New Delhi has deteriorated in recent years due to the surge in the number of cars.
