Prayagraj. With the onset of winter season, after the big metros, now the climate of Sangam city Prayagraj has also started turning poisonous. The poison of smog has started dissolving rapidly in the environment here. For the last 3-4 days, where the effect of haze and fog is being seen in the city of Sangam. So people are facing many problems due to the filtering of smog. From the people going out for the morning walk every day to the people walking on the road, the problem of breathing has also started due to the smog dissolved in the environment. Where the normal air quality index should be 50. At the same time, the level of Air Quality Index has reached 184 in Prayagraj, which is injurious to health.
Along with this, the visibility seems to be very low even after the sun rises due to the layer of smog covering the atmosphere. Especially in the area of Sangam, there is a haze during the day, due to which people are not able to see very far away. People are also facing many problems due to the fog. There is a burning sensation in someone’s eye, then someone’s head is dizzy. Many people are having trouble breathing.
Along with this, the concentration of the atmosphere has also reached 118.8 micrograms per meter in Quebec, which is not good for health. This figure has increased up to 3 times in comparison to the lockdown in March and April. Due to the increase in the AQI level, there is a slight haze in the atmosphere from now on. At the same time, people are facing problems like breathlessness and burning in the eyes due to pollution. The concern of the people is that if this situation is there now, then what will happen after the fireworks in the festival of Diwali? At the same time, experts believe that the smoke coming out of diesel vehicles, diesel-powered agricultural machines used in agriculture, as well as the smoke coming out of industries and kilns are causing pollution.
Especially children and the elderly need to be protected from smog. To avoid smog, people can only come out of the house by covering their face with a mask or any cloth. However, due to Kovid, people have already been advised to wear masks. Along with this, special attention is also needed on food and drink to prevent smog, so that the immunity of the body remains. Weather experts believe that the problem of smog may increase further after the increase of cold wave and the festival of Diwali.
According to former defense scientist Dr. Mohammad Arif, it is natural to form fog in the cold, but due to the mixing of poisonous gases in it, smog is formed. He has cited the increasing number of vehicles in the country and the pollution caused by it as a major reason for smog. He has said that there are 29.2 crore registered vehicles in the entire country. At the same time, there are 3.25 crore registered vehicles in UP alone. The population of Prayagraj city is around 15 lakh 50 thousand and the surprising thing is that a large number of vehicles are registered here too. In such a situation, you can get an idea of how pollution is spreading due to the smoke coming out of vehicles.
