The consistently declining air quality index (AQI) in Guwahati has worsened as citizens celebrate Bihu. The highest recorded AQI in the last 24 hours was 396 at 12:26 PM.
Meanwhile, the 396 AQI is regarded as being in the “very poor” category as per standards and is harmful to people going outside.
The real-time air quality in Guwahati this morning was recorded at 323 AQI, which is determined to be “unhealthy.”
Currently, the PM2.5 concentration in Guwahati is 9.7 times above the recommended limit given by the WHO 24 hrs air quality guidelines value.
Accordingly, the best air quality index was 293 at 4:26 AM during the last 24 hours.
Wearing a good N95 mask to protect oneself from a dipping AQI in the city is generally advised until the AQI improves up to the moderate range.
