Coronavirus and its Impact On Nature

Updated: Jul 5, 2020

You've probably heard enough about coronavirus to last you a lifetime, but this is different. Have you seen the impact coronavirus has made on our environment?

New Delhi has always been very polluted, and not so long ago, was very foggy and dark. As you can see in the picture above, the India Arch was surrounded by fog, but then something happened. What? Coronavirus happened. Coronavirus shut down all non-necessary jobs and that includes factories. Boom! No more air pollution. New Delhi isn't the only place that has cleared the smog out, though. Shang Hai, China, Lagos, Nigeria, and other cities around the world have been becoming cleaner and less gray.

What do we do with it is the question I'm asking here. It's hard to shut down the world for a month or anything drastic like that, but this has kind of made the fact that we could do something a lot more clear. For instance, we could try riding public transportation one day a week, which I started doing before this whole pandemic came around. I don't know. You don't even have to do anything. I leave that choice to you. But really, what is the right thing to do?
