Delhi: Students Wear Masks To Battle Pollution

With Delhi witnessing its worst spell of smog in 17 years, sale of air masks has seen an upsurge in the past week with stores across the national capital and neighbouring regions running out of stock. While Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal has termed Delhi as a “gas chamber” and sought Centre’s intervention in mitigating the alarming levels of smog, Delhiites are running to medical stores and hospitals looking for masks. Some schools in Delhi-NCR have also issued advisories for parents to ensure that their children use masks.
