COPD in Delhi: Who does not want to settle in the capital Delhi, but living here is becoming harmful for health day by day.

In the survey conducted on 40040 thousand people of 8510 houses in Delhi, 443 people were found suspected of COPD. While this disease was confirmed in 394 people. In such a situation, COPD has been found in 9.8 people out of 1000 people in Delhi.
