Why ozone hole is maximum over Antarctica?

The very low winter temperatures in the Antarctic stratosphere cause polar stratospheric clouds (PSCs) to form. Special reactions that occur on PSCs, combined with the relative isolation of polar stratospheric air, allow chlorine and bromine reactions to pro- duce the ozone hole in Antarctic springtime.

What is the total area of the hole that was found in ozone layer in Antarctica?

6.3 million square miles
