Dhaka ranks worst in Air Quality Index

Bangladesh’s capital was ranked worst in the Air Quality Index (AQI). Dhaka had a score of 245 at 08:25am, indicating that the air quality was ‘very unhealthy’.

A numerical value between 201 and 300 indicates that the general public will be noticeably affected and that sensitive groups will experience reduced endurance in activities.

Dubai, Kuwait City and Kuala Lumpur occupied the next three slots with scores of 166, 166 and 163 respectively.

A score between 201 and 300 is classified as ‘very unhealthy’.

The AQI, an index for reporting daily air quality, tells people how clean or polluted the air of a certain city is, and what associated health effects might be a concern for them.
