  The Delhi High Court issues a notice to the Delhi govt, Delhi Pollution Control Committee, the police and the organiser of the Delhi Half Marathon on the Indian Medical Association's plea to postpone the event in view of the poor air quality in the city.

 

 

The IMA last week declared a 'public health emergency state' in Delhi with its president Dr K K Aggarwal requesting people to avoid stepping out and asked schools to remain closed. The medical body also requested Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal to cancel the Delhi Half Marathon scheduled for November 19.

 

 

Pollution levels skyrocketed by the hour in Delhi on Sunday, turning the air quality hazardous, which agencies consider unfit for inhalation even by healthier people. People complained of burning sensation in their eyes and heaviness in breathing, reflecting the severity of the pollution.
