As you all understand that the whole world is under the threat of Novel Coronavirus, officially called COVID–19. To avoid the spread of this deadly virus, several countries like – India, United Kingdom, Australia, Italy, Denmark, Ireland, Spain, Germany, Portugal, Czech Republic, France, Belgium, Norway, China, Slovenia, Indonesia, El Salvador, New Zealand, Poland, and Switzerland, etc. to stricter means that of protection down either the affected regions or the complete country to confirm social distancing.
India is the first country in the world that locked down the whole of the nation forcing the entire 1.3 billion population to remain confined to their homes during the first stage of the virus outbreak till now.
During the lockdown period, the entire population is facing several difficulties but as it is said “Every action has a same and opposite reaction” as a result several good reactions (for the human society) are being experienced. Some of those good reactions are described here as under.:-
In the capital, New Delhi, government data shows the average concentration of PM 2.5 plunged by 71% in the space of a week — falling from 91 micrograms per cubic meter on March 20, to 26 on March 27, after the lockdown began.
2.Finally a clear blue sky: Since the Industries, Vehicles, Aeroplanes, Ships, etc. have stopped running, the presence of smoke and carbon dioxide gases in the air has been drastically decreased. Due to this reason, the visibility range has increased. The sky is returning to its ancient glory with chirping birds and dazzling stars.
India’s Central Pollution Control Board says that there is a dramatic improvement in the air quality in 85 Indian cities of the country during this 21 days lockdown period.
In India, three Sambar deers were spotted walking on a street of Uttarakhand.
An elephant was captured in Dehradun city of Uttarakhand State. Nilgai was found strolling in Noida city of Uttar Pradesh. Olive Ridley Turtles came ashore a beach in Odisha. Peacocks were seen dancing on the streets in Mumbai city of Maharashtra. At least lockdown allowed animals to walk carefree on roads without humans intervention.
At least, now is the best time to appreciate the natural world around us.
“Birds seem to be happy calling out to each other from long distances”. “Go to your backyard, balcony, terrace, look out your window”.
Due to COVID–19-induced lockdown across the whole of India, vehicular traffic has been declined to almost zero. Industries billowing black smoke into the atmosphere is closed. Construction sites that are usually buzzing with activity, spewing dust, and dry cement particles into the air are eerily vacant and due to this reason drastic improvements in air and water quality, visibility of sky, etc. have taken place. The whole world is worried about global warming caused by these activities in our daily life.
The lockdown has taught us a lesson to minimize our unnecessary activities as much as possible and also majorly contributed in restoring our nature.
