Coronavirus! Actually Healing The Planet Earth
The 50th anniversary of Earth Day is here. This is always an interesting event worldwide People fill parks, stadiums, plazas, and universities around the world to rally for environmental protection. However, this time it is going to be different. It is celebrated virtually because of the COVID-19.
“Amid the recent outbreak, we encourage people to rise up but to do so safely and responsibly – in many cases, that means using our voices to drive action online rather than in person,” Kathleen Rogers, president of Earth Day Network, said as reported by the US Today.
COVID-19 has taken the world by storm and has lead to complete or partial lockdown in many countries. Billions of people have been requested to stay indoors since the fatal and mysterious virus has taken the lives of thousands.
This is a dark time for all of us but a positive outcome is that the strange virus is benefiting nature in many ways. Many experts have identified lockdown as the reason for this improvement. The humming of the human crowd has vanished and the cleaner air and silence have taken over in the major cities of many countries.
Is it a good thing? Yes! Though many of us have lost our loved ones, we still have to remain optimistic. Many think that Coronavirus is healing the earth and going through the record of these changes, we also believe so. Here are a few of them:
Water Is Cleaner
Water has become clearer and cleaner. How? The pollutants like sediment churning and motorboats which mostly polluted the tourism spots are almost zero. Beaches around the world have also shown a significant amount of changes since humans are not going there in an attempt to maintain social distancing. This has been evident in most of the areas of Venice where the water got so clear that fish can be seen through. That’s dramatic.
