COVID-19 impacts environment in a surprising way

Although the COVID-19 pandemic has had a detrimental effect on countries around the world, there has been a positive impact on the environment. With social distancing being the new norm, there has been a decrease in air and water pollution.

Society has struggled to acknowledge the fact that the earth and its environment needed a break from all the contamination that humans have created.

Every community needs to start creating better habits for the welfare of the future.
