The coronavirus (COVID-19) has become an epidemic around the world. The deadly virus has so far infected almost 210 countries and territories around the world.
The number of victims is increasing every moment. Although India is also being affected by it either. India is being lockdown due to the outbreak of coronavirus (COVID-19).
In India, people are being encouraged not to go out of the house without any urgent need to prevent the infection of Coronavirus (COVID-19). Cars are not running, schools, colleges, factories, offices, and other institutions are being closed. In this opportunity, nature has created a wonderful form. According to the US space agency NASA, northern India has the lowest air pollution in the last 20 years.
As winter approaches, air pollution in northern India, especially in Delhi, makes life unbearable. But the coronavirus lockdown has made the environment air pollution free all over India.
NASA has noticed this unimaginable change using their satellite sensors. From 31 March 2016 to 5 April 2020, NASA has checked the atmosphere of India.
Pawan Gupta, a scientist of the University Space Research Association at NASA’s Marshall Space Flight Center, said:
“We realized that the lockdown may bring changes in many parts of the atmosphere. But at this time of year, I will see so much change, I can’t believe it.”
