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.

“Its a public health emergency. Right now, our lungs are blacker than 20 years ago”, said Ram Manohar Lohia Hospital’s medical expert, Desh Deepak.

Following this, several groups of New Delhi residents and doctors posted a message on Twitter urging authorities to close schools, thus improving air quality.
