Mongolia’s Ulaanbaatar topped the index with an AQI value of 422 while India’s Delhi and Afghanistan’s Kabul respectively stood third and fourth on the worst air city list with AQI values 201 and 197. Earlier, Dhaka had topped the list on 17 and 23 November, 26 December, and 6 January. The AQI is a tool for measuring daily air quality of any city or country.
