An AQI between 201 and 300 is considered "poor," while a reading of 301 to 400 is said to be "hazardous," posing serious health risks to city residents.

In Bangladesh, the overall AQI is based on five criteria pollutants, such as Particulate Matter (PM10 and PM2.5), NO2, CO, SO2, and Ozone (O3).

Bangladesh has a subtropical monsoon climate characterized by wide seasonal variations in rainfall, high temperatures and humidity.

Generally, Dhaka's air starts getting fresh when monsoon rain begins from mid-June. The air remains mostly acceptable from June to October.

According to the World Health Organization (WHO), air pollution kills an estimated seven million people worldwide every year, largely as a result of increased mortality from stroke, heart disease, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease, lung cancer and acute respiratory infections.
