What is the Environmental Impact of COVID?
There is Less Air Pollution
Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, many cities and entire nations are under lockdown in some cases. Earth-observing satellites have detected a significant decrement in common air pollutants and nitrogen dioxide concentrations. These things enter the atmosphere through cars, trucks, buses, and power plants emissions.
Air pollution can seriously damage human health. According to the World Health Organization, ambient pollution, including stroke, heart disease, and respiratory illness estimated to kiss about 4.2 million people a year. But this COVID-19 lockdown is helping to overcome air pollution rapidly.
Less Noise Pollution
Due to coronavirus pandemic lockdown, everything is closed, people are staying at their houses all the time, so there is significantly no noise from cars, buses, trains, and other transportation. All the noisy and crowded areas are sealed, reducing noise pollution in a huge amount.
Oceans are Probably Quieter
Ocean water has changed in the absence of noise from cruise ships as the industry suspends operations worldwide. These ships and cruises make a hell of a lot of noise and harm ocean life, so just stopping those cruise ships out of the water will reduce the amount of global ocean noise. And due to lockdown in ocean noise that probably hasn’t been experienced in decades.
Ozone Layer Shows Improvement
Main importantly, the Earth’s Ozone layer showed improvement during the lockdown. As per the new study, the ozone layer has started to get better as compared to before.
So this is all about the good side of COVID-19 for the environment. We hope you understand the positive effects of coronavirus on environment.
