Delhi’s Deadly Pollution

The city of Delhi, India, is very highly polluted and is still on the rise. The level of pollution there is about ten times over the safe level, making it extremely harmful for those who live there.

The Indian capital of Delhi is so heavily polluted that inhaling the city air is equivalent to smoking 20 cigarettes per day.

As Al Jazeera’s Matt McClure reports, the country’s health professionals warn the health of its citizens is at stake if pollution levels are not addressed.
