The deadly pandemic has caused a nationwide lockdown for the first time after many years. It has affected almost all the countries in the world equally leading to shutting down of companies, falling off the global stock market and even events like the Olympics have been affected. People are trapped inside their house, there’s nothing one can do to improve the situation. The scenario has become something similar to Hollywood’s zombie apocalypse movies, minus the walking deads, we have a contagious virus. While we are surrounded by negative news of the coronavirus outbreak, there have been some positive impacts too that you should know. These might help you to keep your spirit up through these tough times.
The declaration of lockdown has resulted in empty roads and hence, a cleaner environment. There has been a significant decrease in pollution levels in different countries, including China and India.
The quality of the air has improved magically due to reduced pollution levels from shutting down of factories and lesser vehicle use.
The quarantine period has put an end to the honking problem. The cancellation of events has also contributed to a calmer environment. People can now notice chirping of the birds and the sound of trees.
The quality of the water around the world has improved drastically, leading to better marine life.
A new study confirms the steady healing of the ozone layer in our atmosphere. It has the potential to fully recover, thanks to the lockdown which has impacted global emissions.
There’s no denying the fact that the pandemic has given us a hard lesson on the importance of cleanliness.
We might not like the lockdown phase but it has helped to bring the family close to each other. People are now spending more time together and for those who can’t are staying connected with the help of technology.
The coronavirus has given us a time when we can finally take a break from our busy schedule and check on our health. It has forced us to take care of our immune system. This means spending more time exercising, using natural hacks for skincare and avoiding junk foods. It has also helped us to reconnect with our old hobby.
