On Saturday (November 13, 2021), New Delhi decided to close its schools for a week due to air pollution, which has reached alarming levels in recent days.

“From Monday, schools will be closed so that children do not have to breathe polluted air,” Prime Minister Arvind Kejriwal told reporters. The lessons will be online (online) during the week.

The government also asked employees in government departments to work from home during the same period. A call was made to private institutions to allow their employees to work from home. Construction work and all work that causes dust will be prohibited on Mondays, Tuesdays and Wednesdays of next week.

Government data showed pollution levels in the megacity were 437 on a 500-point scale of the air quality index, nearly eight times higher than the global average.
