Friday, the Government of Delhi will start distributing masks among school students following a spike in the pollution level. In both government and private schools in Delhi, Fifty lakh N95 masks would be distributed among students, said Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal.
A kit of two pieces of N95, one of the good quality masks for tackling smog, will be given to students and will be distributed for a week.
