Dramatic reduction in global air pollution from Corona virus
Rome, Italy – Environmental experts say that although the global outbreak of the novel corona virus is affecting the world economy and millions of small factories are closed, global pollution is also seeing a dramatic decline.
Last week, Stanford University’s Marshall Burke said groundwater obtained from artificial satellites showed a remarkable reduction in harmful nitrogen dioxide gas emissions in China’s atmosphere.
If this reduction is seen from the point of view of health benefits, it means that in the last two months 4000 children under the age of five and more than 70 years, due to air pollution reduction in China. The lives of 73,000 elderly people are saved. “The savings are far greater than the mortal damage that has been inflicted on the corona virus worldwide,” Burke said.
Following the BRICS, now European Space Agency experts have also compared air pollution before and after quarantine in Italy. For this purpose, they used groundwater photographs, taken from “Copernicus Sentinel 5P satellite“.

They also revealed that the industrial activities, cars, trucks and power plants were blocked by the Corona virus, which had a very positive impact on the environment and also the amount of nitrogen dioxide gas in the atmosphere. Has decreased.
A short video has also been released by the European Space Agency about this:
Watching this video, it can be inferred that the global outbreak of the Corona virus in environmental terms is proving to be a “mercy in disgrace” as environmentalists have proved that air pollution is the largest killer in the world at present. As a result, the average age of people in some places has also decreased by three years.
