Nearly 673,000 premature deaths in India are due to outdoor air pollution
In a recent report, it was revealed that nearly 673,000 premature deaths in India are due to outdoor air pollution. It said that of this, 30% of the deaths are due to household emissions. Adding on to this, about 480,000 premature deaths a year are connected to exposure inside the houses.
