Think twice before making a deep breath in Dhaka, the capital city of Bangladesh.

Bangladesh, one of the most densely-populated countries in the world, has been struggling with air pollution for a long time with Dhaka ranked the worst in Air Quality Index (AQI) on Monday morning with very unhealthy air.

The air quality is crippling city life and causing a spike in respiratory illnesses, among other health effects.
