It is caused due to stubble burning in Haryana and Punjab. Why this year is sounding even more dangerous? Economic services have been resumed after covid – induced lockdown and it could end up being a big culprit. Children and the elderly are more prone to respiratory diseases. It is advisable to keep them indoors.
