Polluted air can be life threatening in view of COVID-19

Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal launched a mega anti-air pollution campaign on Monday, saying polluted air can be life-threatening in view of the COVID-19 pandemic.

Under the campaign ‘Yuddh Pradushan ke Viruddh,’ separate plans have been prepared for each of the 13 pollution hotspots in the city, Mr. Kejriwal said during a digital press conference.

Polluted air can be life-threatening in view of the COVID-19 pandemic. Both affect lungs, he said. Mr. Kejriwal added that a war room was being set up to monitor all anti-pollution measures being taken by his government. “The government was also preparing a Green Delhi mobile application,” he said.

“Using it, people can bring pollution-causing activities such as garbage burning or industrial pollution, to our notice. There will be a deadline to address complaints. I will get a daily report about resolved and pending grievances,” the Chief Minister said. – PTI
