Delhi was the world's most polluted capital for the second year running in 2019, according to IQ AirVisual, a Swiss group that gathers air quality data globally.
With all transport and construction suspended, good air has emerged as one of the few positive byproducts of the lockdown to stem the virus that has infected more than 17,000 people and claimed over 500 lives in India.
Experts warn that air quality will drop sharply once the government lifts the lockdown, that is scheduled to run until at least May 3.
