Amid The Coronavirus Pandemic, The Earth Is Healing Itself
THE EARTH IS HEALING ITSELF – When your body gets a virus, your internal system gets defensive, it starts a fever to flush the virus out.
Now, with the new coronavirus pandemic, some say this is the Earth’s response to its own virus – the activities of man.
As countries like Italy went into lockdown, it brought significant recovery to its canals. Usually murky waters are crystal clear and teeming with life. Moreover, dolphins can be seen in the canals.
But, this phenomenon isn’t only happening in Italy. Meanwhile, in Singapore, tourist hotspots were empty – at least with humans. However, a cute family of otters has decided to take a stroll themselves.
Following a short visit to Merlion Park, the seven otters returned to the water. Here they are chilling in the shades of the trees.
While humans carry out social distancing, a group of 14 elephants broke into a village in Yunan province, looking for corn and other food. They ended up drinking 30kg of corn wine and got so drunk that they fell asleep in a nearby tea garden.
According to an article from Science Alert, Stanford University environmental resource economist Marshall Burke did some back-of-the-envelope calculations about the recent air pollution drop over parts of China.
This is all due to countries imposing lockdowns and travel restrictions to curve the spread of the virus.
Currently, there are 218,997 infected with COVID-19 worldwide. Additionally, the virus has caused over 8,953 deaths. However, 84, 795 have recovered from the virus.
