The Chandigarh Administration has cautioned city residents on use of fire crackers, stating that studies have revealed that 15 per cent Covid-19 deaths are caused due to air pollution. The administration added that even those who have recovered from the virus will become vulnerable if people don’t restrain themselves during Diwali. “With the approaching winter and the deteriorating air quality in Chandigarh, more and more people will be susceptible to cough and cold. With the constant threat of Covid-19 looming over them, further pollution by bursting crackers and fireworks will be dangerous for people with weak lungs,” said the administration in a statement.
