ENVIRONMENTAL IMPACT FROM COVID-19

Human life is experiencing a nightmarish hiatus due to the Covid-19 Pandemic. Certainly for this reason Mother Nature is healing herself with the tranquility and peace. Humans disrupt Mother Nature in many ways. Now, Mother Nature is taking a break from human disruption… isn’t She? 

Environmental impact from covid-19 has been explained in this article.

Humans are claimed to be the most talented, sensible, and intelligent living object in this planet. But considering the detrimental examples of the pollution created by humans, we can say humans are the worst possible living objects.

From Air to Water, From Soil to Ocean, what not left to be polluted by humans? Mother Nature has a self-healing power. Think about the Chernobyl nuclear accident happened on April 26, 1986 in Russia. City was devastated and destroyed. But now Nature is getting back her normal appearance. Trees are growing, Squirrels are playing at the tree branches, Birds are singing, Butterflies are flying around and many more. Radiation Didn’t hurt much, Human did.

From making home to making a simple pack of popcorn, humans are simply making a mess of the beautiful Mother Nature slowly but surely.

Evidently, environment is getting polluted by thousands of misdeeds conducted by humans. When we cultivate we cut trees but we don’t re-plant, when we wash our clothes we intoxicate our ecosystem we don’t detoxify, when we visit ocean we throw plastic bottles, when we take care of our plants we use chemicals, and finally when we breathe out we do hurt our very own Mother Nature.

However, Mother Nature heals herself… But how many years Mother Nature can endure such brutal and unwholesome misdeeds of humans?

Now it’s time to see the reaction how the nature backfires. Pollution is exceeding its normal recycling and healing limit. Misdeeds are bouncing back to humans with a bunch of harmful examples.

World Health Organization (WHO) estimates that, says 23% of all estimated global deaths are linked to the environment.

Every year, more than 7 million people die from Air pollution which is twice of the number of deaths caused by road accidents (Ref: UN) WHO data shows that 9 out of 10 people breathe air containing high levels of pollutants.  

Air pollution causes airborne diseases, respiratory problem, lung cancer, lung tumors, ischaemic heart disease, stroke, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease,  and many more.

Water pollution causes many life killing disease. Contaminated water and poor sanitation are linked to transmission of diseases such as cholera, diarrhea, dysentery, hepatitis A, typhoid, and polio. More than 2 million people die each year directly/indirectly from water pollution.

Ocean pollution is now a great threat for marine ecosystem. Specially toxic and plastic materials like single-use grocery polythene bags, water bottles, industrial chemicals are found to be the main reasons behind Ocean pollution. Man made carbon emission increase the level of acids in the Ocean. Birds, Fish, and Marine Animals are facing life threatening challenges.

Noise Pollution is posing a great harm to city dwellers. Noise pollution affects exposed persons by increasing the risks of cardiovascular disease like hypertension, heart attack, brain stroke. Millions of people are now dying indirectly from noise pollution. Bio-diversity is heavily interrupted by noise pollution.

Few months back the world had seen the worst reaction of Mother Nature when wildfire broke out in the world’s largest rain forest Amazon in Brazil. Amazon rain forest is called the lungs of the earth which supplies 20% of the world’s total oxygen production.  After this remorseful event, the world has witnessed how wildfire unrolled in Australia.

Amid the worldwide pandemic of Covid-19 Mother Nature is taking a breathe! A break from human disturbance…!

Flowers are blooming in this Spring, Birds are flying, Turtles are free to breed on the sea shore, Dolphins are playing near to the beach, Whales are splashing in the blue water, and air quality suddenly begins to improve…

At the end of this observation, mankind must take a lesson form this worldwide crisis and act accordingly.

It’s time to rethink how we can redesign our attitude & lifestyle to be less harmful to Mother Nature… Just a simple careful behavior. Nothing much…
