The air quality in Delhi is so bad that United Airlines had to suspend some flights to the Indian capital.
United Airlines canceled flights from Newark, New Jersey to Delhi on Friday November 10th and the following day.
Delhi has been engulfed in a thick blanket of smogsince last week.
The Berkeley Earth science research group says the current air quality in Delhi is equivalent to smoking 44 cigarettes a day.
The thick smog makes it difficult for pilots to see, so United Airlines had to suspend its service to Delhi.
United resumed service there on Sunday but that doesn’t mean the air has cleared up.
Many schools remain closed and most industrial activity has been banned.
The city has also discussed rationing private car use.
City officials have met to discuss possibly sprinkling water from the air to help pollution particles settle.
