New Delhi, India, November 10, 2019—The capital of India’s largest state, Delhi, has the worst air quality in the country.
A recent study by the World Health Organization has identified more than 30 of the country’s top 10 most polluted cities in the world.
Here are some tips for the city’s residents and visitors.1.
Don’t forget to buy your sunscreen in time for winter: The city’s sunburns are a daily reality, especially in winter.
A lack of sun protection is common in the city.
It’s especially problematic in the winter, when the weather is much colder.
But when the sun is out, people don’t need sunscreen.2.
Wear a hat to protect yourself: Delhi is one of the most polluted places in the entire country.
Many of its most polluted buildings are built with cement, a construction technique that can be deadly if not properly maintained.3.
Wash your hands with soap and water after every meal: Delhi’s public washrooms are not open for use during daylight hours, so it’s important to keep your hands clean.
To get the most out of your time at the park, try using the restroom before going to bed.4.
Keep your eyes peeled: It’s a good idea to keep an eye out for cars, buses, and other vehicles on the road in Delhi.
If they’re approaching, look around for the car and avoid crossing the road.5.
Stay off the streets: The state government is cracking down on traffic, but there are some areas that have become even more congested.
Take a break in the parks or the forests, and don’t get caught in traffic jams.6.
Don, don’t breathe: Many of Delhi’s residents suffer from respiratory illnesses, especially during winter, which can cause bronchitis, emphysema, and even death.7.
Drink lots of water: There are lots of rivers in Delhi, but they can be muddy.
Try drinking a lot of clean water and don, don, do not breathe.8.
Get ready for the winter: Delhi, a city with an economy of nearly $4 billion, is on the verge of winter, so many of its residents have to be outside by the time the temperature drops below -20°F (-5°C).
If you’re planning a trip to Delhi, it’s essential that you bring some water, along with a mask.9.
Get some help: If you have asthma, you need to get treatment for it in person.
Delhi has a free-to-stay clinic that can offer you inhalers, patches, and anti-inflammatory medications.
You can also get a free, one-hour physiotherapy session.10.
Use your sunscreen: Many people in Delhi don’t wear masks, but you can still protect yourself with a face mask.
You may not be able to see all of the dark areas in the sky, but a good mask will protect your face.
