A healthier planet during COVID-19 - By Harini Rajesh
Updated: Apr 28, 2020
Currently, the majority of the population around the world is in quarantine, staying away from the rest of the world to help stop the virus COVID-19. As a result, the use of cars or any other type of transportation has stopped except for the occasional use to go buy groceries and other necessities. This action has caused a reduction in pollution in many areas of the world, such as China, due to the decrease in car related auto-emissions. Since cars are being used less frequently, our air quality is slowly improving. From the looks of it, quarantine has helped us start a new change towards a better environment. If our environment can improve without the help of human activity, just imagine how we could improve our world with human activity. We, collectively, can plant trees to support every human life and as a result, make a difference in our world!
