Raising concerns over the deteriorating air quality in Uttar Pradesh, artificial lungs installed in Lucknow’s Lalbagh area near Nagar Nigam office has turned black within 24-hours.

The object of the artificial lungs installation is to mimic the functioning of the human lungs.

“This shows the air quality here. It took six days for the lungs to turn black in Delhi, 18 days in Bengaluru,” said Climate Agenda Director Ekta Shekhar, the organization which has installed the artificial lungs.

Ms. Shekar said that “in Lucknow, the lungs turned black by the very next day of the installation, within 24 hours. We had used HEPA filters. There are loopholes in the National Clean Air Programme of the government. Till the time they are not addressed, the situation won’t be better in the state.”

Apart from Uttar Pradesh, the overall air quality index (AQI) has deteriorated to “very poor” category in Delhi after the level of harmful pollutants has shot up.

As per the government-run SAFAR, Delhi’s AQI was docking at 382 in the early morning.
