GB NEWS24 DESK//
Dhaka, the capital city of Bangladesh, has ranked the fifth-worst in Air Quality Index (AQI) this morning.
According to Saturday’s reading, Dhaka had a score of 228 at 8:20 am, indicating that the air quality was ‘very unhealthy.’
In the index, Shenyang of China and Bosnia Herzegovina’s Sarajevo occupied the top two positions in the list of cities with worst air with scores of 304 and 294 respectively.
When the AQI value is between 201 and 300, every city dweller may begin to experience health effects.
The AQI, an index for reporting daily air quality, 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.
