What has changed since we began lockdown? A lot less cars on the road, factories stopping, planes being grounded, less litter in the streets and a lack of Deforestation. Is Coronavirus a way of the planet trying to heal itself?
Less people are traveling means that there will be a lot less Diesel and petrol fumes entering the atmosphere, fewer car accidents which cause huge congestion on the roads, and in turn more and more pollution. Much fewer planes in the sky means a huge reduction in pollution.
Due to the fact that we are not allowed to leave our homes unless its an emergency, arborists won't be able to cut down trees giving our precious forests time to breathe. We are also breathing cleaner air making our bodies healthier too.
Since everyone is having to stop going to work, that means the people that work in factories must stop for a while, giving our planet a break. Perhaps the earth has been through enough?
Coronavirus is a terrible, life-threatening disease and the trauma it is causing across the whole world is devastating however the trauma our planet is experiencing every day is just as devastating.
