The air quality in Dhaka remained "moderate" this morning.

Dhaka was tenth on the list of cities with the worst air quality in the world at 8:52 am, with an air quality index (AQI) score of 90.

With AQI scores of 162, 151, and 119, respectively, the top three cities on the list were Sao Paulo in Brazil, Dubai in the United Arab Emirates, and Jakarta in Indonesia.

An air quality index (AQI) of 50 to 100 is considered to be "moderate." However, a very small proportion of people who are extremely sensitive to air pollution may experience health issues.

Particulate matter (PM10 and PM2.5), NO2, CO, SO2, and ozone are the five criterion pollutants on which Bangladesh's air quality index (AQI) is based.

Air pollution has always been a problem in Dhaka. Usually, the winter is when the air quality becomes bad, and the monsoon is when it gets better.

One of the leading causes of mortality and disability globally continues to be air pollution.

According to the World Health Organization (WHO), air pollution claims the lives of seven million people annually.
