A group of doctors and residents are urging New Delhi authorities to shut down schools and cancel sports events held in open areas after air pollution levels in the Indian capital have remained at an alarming rate for two consecutive days.

The Central Pollution Control Board (CPCB) in its air pollution guidelines, said a field fire in a neighboring country, caused smoke to surround the city, caught toxic smoke, which could endanger the health of its 20 million people.

The CPCB air quality index is reported to have reached 400, a dangerous scale that can affect people with respiratory problems, as well as those who are healthy.

Pollution readings in some areas have also been reported to be 500, the worst level on the scale of the government.
