Nature’s Beauty Returns to Venice As Swans & Dolphins Return To Its Canals and Air, Water Quality Improves During Lockdown Over CoronavirusHowever, due to the increase of coronavirus case in the country, the country has been put under lock down. All activities has been stopped as Authorities has ask it’s citizens to stay at home, this measure is to curb the rate of transmission of the virus.
But surprisingly, the lockdown has helped in clearing the city’s canals.
The canals of Venice have become as clear as streams thanks to the absence of tourists and much-reduced traffic due to Italy’s quarantine measures to tackle the Coronavirus outbreak.
The bottom of the canals can be now be seen, with fish clearly visible as they weave their way through the channels of the north Italian lagoon city.
The enhanced visibility of the canals is seen as a direct effect of the lack of pollution from the city’s normally-busy vaporetti as well as the drastically-reduced movement of other boats and cruise ships.
As reported By CNN, the locals have noticed a huge difference in the clarity of the water. The air quality has improved in the city.
The Venice mayor’s spokesperson said, “The water now looks clearer because there is less traffic on the canals, allowing the sediment to stay at the bottom. It’s because there is less boat traffic that usually brings sediment to the top of the water’s surface.”
As pollution from human activities dropped. Nature in its resilience is reclaiming its spaces during quarantine in Italy.
