Lockdowns in China and Italy caused similar improvements to their fight against Covid-19.

On April 22, Jakarta was ranked 38th as a contributor to air pollution.

The combination of the increasing volume of vehicles on the road and low precipitation levels has fueled Jakarta’s increasingly poor air quality.

Jakarta’s Air Quality Worsens

The large number of vehicles crowding every corner of Jakarta has resulted in the capital city’s poor air quality.

Based on data from AirVisual IQAir.com, Jakarta’s air quality at 6:39pm on June 15 was at 131 US AQI.

The figure thus positions Jakarta as the second-biggest contributor to air pollution after the city of New Delhi, which recorded a score of 142 US AQI.

Greenpeace climate and energy campaigner Bondan Andriyanu stressed that Jakarta’s air quality level must be immediately addressed.
