Dhaka, the capital city of Bangladesh, has again ranked worst in the Air Quality Index (AQI) for the second consecutive day.

Dhaka had a score of 246 at 08:45 am on Monday, indicating that the air quality was very unhealthy, reports UNB.

In the index, Lahore of Pakistan, Ulaanbaatar of Mongolia and India’s Delhi occupied the next three slots with a score of 186, 184 and 182 respectively.

When the AQI value is between 201 and 300, every city dweller may begin to experience health effects.

Children, adults, and people with respiratory diseases are advised to avoid outdoor exertion while everyone else is suggested to limit outdoor exertion in this situation.

The air quality is categorized as good when the AQI score remains between 0 and 50 while the air is moderate when score is 51 to 100. When the number is between 101 and 150, the air is classified as unhealthy for sensitive groups.

The AQI is an index for reporting daily air quality, which tells people how clean or polluted the air of a certain city is and what associated health effects might be a concern for them.

Bangladesh’s overcrowded capital has been grappling with air pollution for a long time. The quality usually improves during monsoon.
