Delhi pollution is becoming a problem that is increasing with each passing day. A camp that was held on Monday morning revealed that at least one in every seven policemen in the national capital is suffering from respiratory problems. This data was revealed after 80 of the 516 policemen, who took part in the camp at the Traffic Police Headquarters in Todapur, were suffering from breathing problems, as per a report by Hindustan Times. Lung congestion, asthma and throat irritation were the common problems that were detected. These policemen have been asked to wear pollution masks while performing duty, do ‘Pranayam’ and breathing exercises, try meditation and eat a healthy food. More than 5500 traffic policemen are expected to go through similar tests in the next 10 days.
It is not only the policemen who are getting affected by the Delhi pollution. During the ongoing Test between India and Sri Lanka at the Feroz Shah Kotla stadium, many Sri Lankan players complained of pollution. Fast-bowler Suranga Lakmal had to leave the field due to difficulties in breathing. The other Sri Lankan players fielded with masks.
