new Delhi: The presentation was given by the Health Ministry in the meeting of Parliamentary Committee of the Ministry of Urban Development on Friday, in which shocking facts have been revealed. According to a research, between 2016 and 2019, Delhi's climate was just 4 days, while 366 days was the most polluted. Due to pollution, people are having difficulty in breathing, due to which people will sneeze more and droplets can stay in the air for longer.
Because of this there is a high possibility of corona infection increasing.
The Parliamentary Committee was also informed by the Ministry of Health that 12.5 per cent of people die in India due to pollution and related diseases. At the same time, the average age of people in India has decreased by 1.7 years due to pollution. Along with this, one thing was also revealed that India has 21 cities among the 30 most polluted cities in the world. Life risk has increased by 1.7 times due to pollution in Delhi. Due to this, according to an estimate, between 10,000 and 30,000 people are dying every year.
“No concrete evidence of link between pollution and Kovid-19”
A new study on more than three thousand counties in the US has shown that people who live longer with exposure to 'PM2.5' micro-particles increase their chances of death from Kovid-19. After this research has come up, there has been increased concern about the trend of epidemic and the rate of deaths in the areas of North India already facing pollution problem. But some experts say that no authentic relationship has yet been established between PM 2.5 and death from Kovid-19.
Scientists at Harvard University believe that the excess of 'ACE-2 receptor' proteins are produced in the lungs when exposed to 'PM2.5' particles. Which helps the corona virus to enter the cells of the body. Scientists believe that prolonged exposure to air pollution also adversely affects people's immunity.
