A thick blanket of dust and haze obscures New Delhi’s skyline on Thursday. The sudden nosedive in Delhi’s air quality has seen a spike in the number of patients with respiratory complaints.

Neighbourhood News Desk: Do you have a cough, cold, and a runny nose, or suffering from breathlessness? Blame it on the dust pollution. Doctors across Delhi reported an increase in the number of patients of respiratory ailments coming in with aggravated symptoms.

  • Stay indoors as much as possible.
  • Travel in cars with windows rolled up.
  • For people who have already been exposed to the dust and have congestion or runny nose, doctors advise antihistamine.
