Recent reports highlight Lahore’s recurrence under a blanket of smog, leading to a significant spike in air pollution levels. The city’s Air Quality Index (AQI) has surged to alarming levels, categorizing Lahore among the most polluted cities globally.

The Meteorological Department’s forecast offers little respite, indicating no likelihood of natural rainfall in Lahore within the next 24 hours. The persistent smog has posed challenges for residents, prompting medical experts to advise precautionary measures for individuals venturing outdoors.

In response to the critical situation, Caretaker Chief Minister of Punjab, Mohsin Naqvi, announced on Wednesday the closure of schools and offices across the province on November 18 (Saturday). This decision is part of heightened efforts to tackle the smog crisis and protect the well-being of the public.

Lahore consistently maintains its ranking among the top three most polluted cities, predominantly due to widespread smog. The decision to shut down educational and administrative institutions follows a meeting chaired by CM Mohsin Naqvi with the provincial Cabinet Committee on smog, reflecting the urgency of addressing the environmental challenge.
