Let us tell you that the festival of Diwali falls in the winter season. At the same time, stubble is burnt in the states around Delhi. Due to this, cases of smog are seen in Delhi and the air quality becomes worse. In such a situation, for the last few years, firecrackers are being banned continuously and it is being advised to burst green crackers.
The Delhi Pollution Control Committee (DPCC) has ordered a ban on the sale and bursting of firecrackers in the national capital till January 1, 2022. According to the order, several experts have indicated that the cases of Covid-19 are expected to rise and people will gather in large numbers to celebrate on a large scale by bursting firecrackers. Not only will this violate the rule of social distancing, but the high level of air pollution will cause serious health issues in Delhi. The order said that in view of the significant link between air pollution and respiratory infection, bursting of crackers is not conducive to the health of the people due to the current pandemic crisis.
