Webinar on Air Pollution and Transport
Author(s): The Energy and Resources Institute (TERI)
With the ongoing un-lockdown, there has been a rising concern about air pollution in Delhi, and north India in general.

It has been found that exposure to air pollution could also increase vulnerability and have detrimental effects on the prognosis of patients affected by COVID-19. A study by Harvard University highlights that a trivial upsurge in long-term exposure to PM 2.5 leads to a huge increase in the COVID-19 death rate. The webinar discusses the preparedness of Delhi Government and other state governments for the upcoming air pollution crisis, and the role of EVs and public transport to overcome it.
