Temperatures are already falling day by day in Hyderabad. Single-digit temperatures are being recorded like never before. We are witnessing gusts of wind from 5 pm itself. Meanwhile, Danger Bells are ringing once again as temperatures drop. The Meteorological Department reports that the level of air pollution is much higher than in the past due to the extreme temperatures.
The City Air Quality Index has declined sharply. On Thursday, the air quality index was 101-200 in many parts of the city, including Bollaram, Patancheru, and Rajendranagar, but the level of air pollution was so high that it could make breathing difficult for lung and heart patients, Meteorological Department experts said.
On the other hand, the Air Quality Index registered 261 points at Sanath Nagar in the city like never before. Experts estimate that rising levels of pollution in the air are due to declining temperatures. Winter airborne toxins include a variety of pollutants, including Sulphur Dioxide, Nitrogen Dioxide, PM10, Ozone, and PM 2.5, all of which can contribute to air pollution during this time. Medical experts say that these chemicals are usually the cause of asthma or other lung-related diseases.
