Delhi air pollution live updates: Deputy Chief Minister has appealed to the people in the city to avoid venturing outside, in the wake of high pollution levels.

Delhi NCR woke up to a smoggy morning on Wednesday, as air quality remained in the ‘severe’ category in several parts of the city. The state government on Tuesday had ordered all primary schools to remain closed and barred outdoor activities for children in the wake of the pollution. Chief Minister Arving Kejriwal, who described Delhi as a “gas chamber”, reviewed the situation in a meeting with health and environment officials.

The Delhi government is “prepared” to re-launch its odd-even transport scheme and restrict trucks from entering the city in the case of an “emergency,” deputy CM Manish Sisodia. The government also issued a health advisory for residents of the capital, especially children, the elderly and those suffering from asthma and heart ailments. “We appeal to the people of Delhi to avoid morning and evening walks,” Sisodia had said yesterday.
