On this study, Sandeep Nair, respiratory specialist from BL Kapoor, Delhi, says pollution in Delhi is the main reason. The air in Delhi has turned toxic. In such situation, respiratory illnesses have also increased among Delhi children. In their own patients, children now have more breathing problems than ever before.

Corona and pollution together become a big problem. With the increase in pollution, the possibility of increasing cases of corona also increases. In such a situation, the administration will have to take measures to reduce the pollution. He further says that if it is not necessary, the children should be out of the house less often.
