Animals On The Streets During Coronavirus Quarantine

Nature can finally take a breath. If there is anything good that can come out of this situation it is a significant drop in air pollution levels. Images taken by the European Space Agency’s satellite Sentinel-5 show best how these measures may help our planet in the long run.

There is a significant drop in air pollution levels.

In countries which are in complete lockdown, people report seeing animals on the streets. Due to human absence, animals roam freely in some cities in Italy, Thailand and Japan. On social media people share videos and photos showing deer, sheep, horses and even wild boars walking around.

Despite the seriousness of the situation people are amused by these unusual guests. But the sad thing is they are only in search of food. This is not something we are used to, which explains why some people are in complete shock.

As more countries adopt strict measures for quarantine, there will be more of these kind of photos for sure. And remember, be kind to one another and help everyone in need if you can.
