Dhaka's air quality improves after two days of rain
Dhakaiites were greeted with clearer-than-usual weather today as the air quality in Dhaka has improved significantly following two days of rainfall in the last week. According to the U.S. Embassy air quality monitor, the AQI (Air Quality Index) at 12 PM today was at 57, the lowest it has been in the last month.
The AQI is a measure of how polluted the air is, and a lower AQI indicates better air quality. The improvement in air quality can be attributed to the recent rainfall, which has helped to clear the air of pollutants.
The improvement in air quality is a welcome relief for residents of Dhaka, who have been suffering from high levels of air pollution for years. Air pollution is a major public health issue in Bangladesh, with millions of people exposed to dangerous levels of pollutants on a daily basis.
Despite the recent improvement in air quality, it is important for residents to continue to take steps to protect themselves from the harmful effects of air pollution. This includes avoiding outdoor activities during times of high pollution, using air purifiers and masks, and supporting efforts to improve air quality in the city.
