Along with the death toll arising with these pollution figures, there's an estimated cost of United States dollars 225 billion in lost labour and trillions in medical costs.

New Delhi was the world's most polluted capital city in 2018, two groups monitoring air pollution said on Tuesday in a study of the amount of fine particulate matter known as PM2.5 in 61 capital cities around the world.

Globally, the alarming increase in air pollution is expected to cause 7 million premature deaths in the next year. Delhi - a frequent fixture on global pollution hotspots - was only the 11th most noxious city behind Lahore, Pakistan (10th) and Hotan, China (8th). While, Afghanistan, Mongolia, Bahrain and Kuwait topped the chart, countries like Iceland, Finland, Estonia, Australia and Sweden were among the least polluted as per the 2018's World Air Quality Report. On the other hand, Chinese cities have seen a marked improvement.

According to data released by the non-profit organization, IQAir AirVisual and Greenpeace, 15 out of the 20 most polluted cities in the world belong to India.
