"Heavy smog compelled New Delhi to declare a pollution emergency last week. As air pollution soared to hazardous levels and residents donned masks, India’s capital took a series of measures, such as banning most commercial trucks from entering the city and closing all schools, in response to the air quality crisis.
Many residents complained of headaches, coughs and other health concerns, and poor visibility caused major traffic accidents."

"Some 30,000 people have taken part in the Delhi half marathon, held amid high levels of air pollution.

However conditions were better than during last month's hazardous smog, which forced the Indian government to declare a public health emergency."
