Economic activity slows down, people go out, air quality in Europe and China has improved. From a positive perspective, Covid 19 is like a period of time for the world to "rest" and recover from the severe environmental pollution that the planet is suffering from
The widespread epidemic caused flights to be cut, residents in homes and factories closed. Air pollution in parts of China and Europe has improved. The European Space Agency (ESA) has found a significant reduction in pollution between January and February. NO2 emissions are gaining attention throughout Europe, especially in northern Italy, where a moratorium began on March 9.
Using the Copernicus Sentinel-5P satellite, the European Space Agency recorded a clear positive change in air quality in Europe - from January 1 to March 11.
Share with SBS News, Mr. Josef Aschbacher "Even when the weather is taken into account, the drop in pollution is quite unexpected," said ESA's director of Earth Observation. The decline in Italy, especially in the Po Valley, is important evidence that the impact of blockade orders from COVID-19 can make the environment better.
I believe pollution levels will continue. decrease in the days and weeks to come. "Other countries are currently taking drastic measures, we will see air pollution significantly reduced in the near future."
Both Dr. Schofield and climate scientist Michael Mann both believe that dramatic changes in the environment over time can show the world how we should act to prevent climate change.
Residents are also excited to see swans begin to swim on the canals of Venice, ducks appear at the Rome fountain ... when people are indoors avoiding Covid-19. Usually, tourist wooden boats or motorboat running around in the water makes them very rarely appear here, not only swans, many small fish also rush into the canals of Venice.
Spokesman for city mayor Luigi Brugnarocho said the water pollution index had not dropped significantly but the air quality had changed a lot. Fresh air is also a hope for improving human health during the epidemic season.
According to a recent report from the University of Colorado Boulder (USA), the ozone hole above Antarctica is showing signs of self-healing after years of serious human damage. Not only that, the images show that the level of pollution has decreased sharply in major cities in Europe has been published by the European space agency (ESA). The image compares the level of NO2 emissions in the air between the time of Covid 19 epidemic and the year before.
There is ample evidence that air pollution is a major cause of premature death in humans. So, the obvious question is: Will many people be saved by reducing air pollution to surpass the number of deaths from the COVID-19 virus? We can fully hope that after this pandemic, Europe will become more livable and fresh, the awareness of environmental protection will certainly be enhanced.
