Due to the unusual outbreak of COVID-19, pretty much every of all shapes and sizes
urban areas and towns in the influenced nations like China, Taiwan, Italy, USA, France, Spain,
Turkey, Iran, Germany, S Korea, U.K, India, Australia and some more, is under fractional of all
out lockdown for an extensive stretch of time going from half a month up to a couple of months.
All nearby and focal organizations worldwide have actually put a prohibition on free
development of their residents outside their home so as to evade network transmission the
different strict, culture, social, logical, sport, and political mass get-together occasions like, Hajj,
Olympics and so forth are dropped. Different kinds of ventures are not working, a wide range of
movements are dropped. Then, endeavors to limit transmission of the SARS-CoV-2, by
confining the development have had an exceptional ecological impact. Due to non-working of
businesses, modern waste emanation has diminished to an enormous degree. Vehicles are not
really found on the streets coming about just about zero outflows of green-house gases and
harmful small suspended particles to nature. Because of lesser interest of intensity in businesses,
utilization of non-renewable energy sources or customary vitality sources have been brought
down significantly. Environments are by and large significantly recuperated. In numerous huge
urban areas the occupants are encountering a reasonable sky without precedent for their lives.
The contamination level in places of interest, for example, timberlands, ocean sea shores, slope
territories and so on is likewise contracting to a great extent. Ozone layer has been found to have
restored somewhat. The pandemic has shown its differentiating result on human development, as
in, on one hand it has executed overall annihilation, however made a positive effect on the world

condition then again.

Photographs of reduced smog in China, unpolluted canals in Italy, and wild creatures
meandering the avenues in the United States have been shared all over Facebook, Instagram, and
Twitter in the course of recent weeks, helping offer would like to a dampened worldwide
populace. Nonetheless, a significant number of those photographs are some of incalculable
instances of the destructive deception that has spread over the web during the pandemic - they
have sustained a bogus story of a situation spared by half a month of isolate and overlooked the
negative ecological effects that have rather resulted. To start, the pandemic has prompted the
surrender of numerous ecological supportability programs - in the United States, littler regions
have stopped reusing programs because of the dangers related with the spread of the infection. In
like manner, Italy has prohibited contaminated inhabitants from arranging their loss by any
stretch of the imagination. Also, numerous organizations have upset dispensable pack bans and
started depending by and by on single-use plastics, and numerous cafés are done tolerating
reusable holders - toward the beginning of March, Starbucks declared a transitory restriction on
utilizing reusable cups. Besides, with an ever increasing number of buyers segregated at home,
there has been an expanding number of online buys and dinner conveyances made. This has not
just caused the removal of increasingly single-utilize plastic bundling, yet has additionally
required progressively petroleum derivatives to be scorched for the individual transportation and
dispersion of products. There has likewise been an expansion in clinical waste - a significant part
of the individual defensive gear that human services experts are utilizing must be worn once
before being discarded. Medical clinics in Wuhan, for instance, created more than 200 tons of
waste for each day during the pinnacle of their flare-up, contrasted with a normal of under 50
tons earlier. Regardless of whether mass detachments were helping in the decrease of
environmental change, it would not be a maintainable method for tidying up the earth.
Joblessness is arriving at record highs and trillions have been vowed by governments to
help re-establish their economies. The impacts of financial downturn and isolate have hit the
poor the hardest - those that don't approach joblessness protection, the individuals who live
check to check, and the individuals who don't have social wellbeing nets bear the monetary brunt
of the emergency. Tolerating the passing of the helpless and outrageous limitations on regular
day to day existence is certainly not a practical or solid approach to battle environmental change.
Besides, many have anticipated that following required lockdowns, nations will be centered
around restarting their economies by subsidizing modern exercises, while people will need to
travel. These activities could turn around what advantageous natural impacts have emerged from
the pandemic reaction. A comparable case can be seen with the 2008 money related accident - in
spite of the fact that there was a transitory lessening in outflows of 1.3%, as the economy
recouped in 2010, discharges were at a record-breaking high. While it is totally justifiable to be
attracted to positive news coursing on the web in this wild time, so as to forestall the spread of
falsehood, it is essential to recollect to truth check news before sharing it. (Yvonne, 2020)

II. Discussion
As people around the world isolate in their homes to prevent the spread of COVID-19,
research indicates there may be some positive environmental outcomes. Robert O. Lawton
Distinguished Professor Jeff Chanton from the Department of Earth, Ocean and Atmospheric
Science (EOAS) said data show significant decreases in air pollution since January 2020.
(PRENTISS, 2020)

In this statement, we can absolutely say that COVID 19 helps in reducing the pollution in
our air that is positively good environmental effect. Personally, I see this as an opportunity for us
to really see what it would look like to slow down, what the effects might be and what the
consequences will be if we don’t. Due to the pandemic, the world economy is slowing down
causing excessive expenses for the government just to cope to the needs of its people.
Covid-19 pandemic has immediately affected our homes and workplaces; however with
regards to the earth, the image is far less clear. Vincent-Henri Peuch accepts the present
circumstance may impact our way to deal with contamination, pushing ahead "The lessons
learned once we will have this crisis behind us will be very important to rethink the problem of
air pollution" he says. Unfortunately climate change will still be around and will not really be
changed by this crisis. There are a number of similarities between the COVID-19 crisis and
climate change, including that they demand early and aggressive action to flatten the curve. In
the case of climate change, it is the emissions curve. There is a significant cost to denying
scientific expertise, so we need to act quickly and appropriately. The extent to how extreme
either one of these global crises gets, depends on our actions.
Environment change is one of the biggest and most vital challenges of the 21st century.
In spite of all their efforts to restore the nature during the last few decades, humans could only
move a few steps forward. But during the last few months, consequences of the pandemic have
successfully recovered the environment to a large extent that should definitely set positive impact
on global climate change. Whatever is the cause or origin, the occurrence of COVID-19 has
emphasized to improve the mutually-affective connection between humans and nature. At
this point of time, it is indispensable to control the source of disease, cut off the transmission
path, and use the existing drugs & means to control the progress of the disease proactively. Like
all the preceding disasters on the earth, let all be optimistic enough that, human beings will
definitely win over the pandemic in due course of time, but they should know the limits to which
they can thrust nature, before it is too late.
