Business MInutes

A new study from healthcare provider Pristyn Care found that nearly 60% of people in Delhi and Mumbai are considering relocating because of worsening air quality and pollution. Both cities deal with high pollution every year, and there's still no permanent solution for this recurring problem. The study included 4000 people from Delhi, Mumbai, and nearby areas.

A staggering 9 in 10 respondents report experiencing the most common symptoms of the deteriorating Air Quality Index (AQI). These include persistent coughing, shortness of breath, wheezing, sore throat, and watery or itchy eyes. The study also revealed that 4 in 10 residents in Delhi and Mumbai seek medical attention for health issues related to air pollution every year or at least every few years. When questioned about adjusting their lifestyle to deal with air pollution, 35% mentioned they stopped outdoor activities such as exercising and running, while 30% began wearing masks outdoors.

While air purifiers can improve indoor air quality by eliminating or reducing pollutants and allergens, a mere 27% of respondents in Delhi and Mumbai employ them. Surprisingly, 43% still have this misconception that these devices reduce immunity.
