Normally, this time of the year brings ecstasy for people of Karachi. They get to take a jibe at their fellow countrymen from Lahore and for a good reason.

This is the beginning of winter season in the country. In Lahore, winter means smog, when the air is too hazardous to breath.It is a similar story this year too. Since the start of October, Lahore’s air quality has been “unhealthy” for 17 out of 23 days, according to the air quality data by AirVisual.

For the remaining six days, it was “unhealthy for sensitive groups.”Karachi rarely faces such as situation thanks to its proximity to seaBut the joy for people of Karachi was killed as they stepped out of their homes Saturday morning. The city’s air was filled with dust particles, and visibility was low.

Unhealthy levels of pollution were recorded in the city, plunging the air quality to 194 US AQI, according to IQAir.
