The coronavirus pandemic has brought the world to a standstill but for nature, it has emerged as a blessing in disguise. And a good example would be Italy’s environment right now, which is currently facing a lockdown amidst cornavirus spread.
Images from Italy being shared online shows how the lack of human activity has changed the city’s environment for good. The images of Venice shared online show the cleaner state of canals as there are no humans around to pollute them.
In the viral pictures, one can also notice hundreds of fishes swimming in the pound, which is a rare sight for the people of Italy. One can also notice how the bottom of the canal has also cleaned itself.
The pictures were shared by a Twitter user. “Here’s an unexpected side effect of the pandemic – the water’s flowing through the canals of Venice is clear for the first time in forever. The fish are visible, the swans returned,” she wrote.

Naturally, this is not the only good thing happening to Italy amidst coronavirus spread. Recently, satellite images of Italy captured from the space have shown a reduction in the pollution level in the country.
This is the result of the rapid decrease in nitrogen dioxide emissions in Italy. European Space Agency Copernicus shared the before and after lockdown images of Italy and one can clearly see the plunge in the pollution level.
The pictures and the current state of nature in Italy is the proof that nature has this ability to restore itself no matter what. And if we pollute or harm the nature in any way, it would be like digging our own graves because nature, in the end, has the ability to grow a garden on the same grave.
And even netizens agree with the same:
