Lancet study: 23.5 lakh deaths in the world due to pollution in India in 2019, Lancet report

According to the study of Lancet, 6500 deaths are being done every day in India due to diseases caused by pollution. Every sixth death in the world is being caused by different types of pollution. It is a matter of relief for India in this report that the number of deaths in 2019 has decreased compared to 2015.

In the year 2019, more than 23.5 lakh premature deaths have occurred in the world due to all types of pollution in India. Out of this, 16.7 lakh deaths have occurred due to air pollution alone.

This has been claimed in a new study published in the leading journal The Lancet Planetary Health Journal. According to the study report, out of the deaths due to air pollution in India, 9.8 lakh deaths were also due to pollution from airborne dust particles (PM2.5). These tiny pollution particles present in the air are 2.5 microns or less in width. The remaining 6.1 lakh deaths due to air pollution were due to domestic air pollution.

6400 deaths daily, shocking figure
On the basis of 23.5 lakh deaths in a year, the average daily deaths are taken out, then this number comes to 6400. That is, 6400 people are dying every day due to diseases caused by pollution. This number is many times more than the figure of the corona epidemic. Corona has caused more than 5 lakh deaths in the country in about two and a half years. Therefore, the number of deaths due to pollution given in the study is shocking.

9 million deaths worldwide
Globally, there have been 9 million deaths due to pollution in 2019. This number is one in every six deaths worldwide. Out of these 90 lakh deaths, 66.70 lakh deaths are due to domestic pollution and environmental pollution.

6500 deaths daily due to pollution
Yes, this figure is shocking, but according to the study of Lancet, 6500 deaths are being done every day in India due to diseases caused by pollution. Every sixth death in the world is being caused by different types of pollution. It is a matter of relief for India in this report that the number of deaths in 2019 has decreased compared to 2015. There were 25 lakh deaths in 2015, while in 2019 there were 23.5 lakh deaths.
