Colombo Breathes Cleaner Air

Colombo, Sri Lanka’s commercial capital hasn’t seen cleaner skies in almost a decade. Reports came across recording the capital’s air pollution status. As the results may not impress many, the impact of the country’s successful lockdown seemed to have resulted in slightly cleaner and more breathable air.

The air pollution status in the early hours of today, stood at a moderate level of 57, as measured by PM 2.5 (fine particulate matter).

The ‘moderate’ level, which ranges from 51-100, doesn’t imply a major change remaining at an ‘acceptable state’ however, residents have informed that the air is ‘less heavy’ on the lungs.

“Active children and adults, and people with respiratory disease, such as asthma, should limit prolonged outdoor exertion,” according to the Air Quality Index (AQI) categorizations.

“Colombo’s air pollution status, however, will stand still at ‘unhealthy’ the National Building Research Organization (NBRO) said citing the AQI predictions of the US Embassy in Colombo.
