The city is getting warmer after witnessing a cold winter. Despite the sweltering days, the air quality has remained consistently in 'poor' and 'very poor' categories for the past several weeks. However, since Wednesday the Air Quality Index (AQI) has improved marginally.

The city’s declining air quality and sudden shift in temperatures have contributed to several health problems with people across the city getting infected by influenza.

On Thursday morning, the city's temperature stood at 20°C while the humidity was 80%.
