AQI Goes Above 400 in Lahore

LAHORE: Provincial capital of Punjab has been declared the most polluted city globally after the city’s Air Quality Index (AQI) went above 400.

The Air Quality Index data was released on Monday and put Lahore on the list of the most polluted cities in the world while Karachi came in fourth.

On the other hand, PM2.5 concentration in Lahore air is currently 75.6 times above the WHO annual air quality guideline value.

Lahore suffers from high levels of air pollution, with the city regularly ranking at the top of live pollution rankings of major global cities. However, pollution only rose to the top of the public’s consciousness in early 2017.
