“Pandemic is a terrible way to improve physical, mental and environmental health.”
COVID-19 have impacted throughout the world. Most significant impacts are related to the environment and the climate. This outbreak has provided cover for environmental pollution as well as for many of the illegal activities.
Let’s get to the positive impacts of COVID-19 one by one. The lockdown has seen global greenhouse gas emission drop. Significantly under several measures to prevent the spread of the coronavirus over last few months. Local businesses have shut, factories closed, social movements restricted and transportation bring to a halt. With all restrictions mentioned above, the rate of burning of fossil fuels reduces. The carbon footprint has lessened, and air quality has improved significantly. Despite the country, the whole world has felt the impact. More so canals oceans across major cities in the world have benefited from global lockdowns, escaping the usual and constant pollution from every day human activity. Researchers said that the reduction in pollution would likely to yield significant health benefits.
Not only environmental pollution but also the rate of road accidents also has been decreased, and it has found that Highway accidents, including those who involving an injury or fatality and traffic accidents, have remarkably reduced. Another most critical positive impact is improved hygiene. Most of the people forget to wash their hands as often as necessary as a result of the hectic lifestyle. But part of the safety precautions to keep the coronavirus away requires improving hygienic practices, such as consistent washing of hands, constant use of hand sanitizers and also wearing a mask whenever you expose to the outside. And these habits may remain in people’s life long after the pandemic is over. Consequently, physical well-being will be better maintained.
Another most critical outcome of this pandemic situation is innovations to stay connected and to help each other in every possible way. This quarantine welcome ideas, hacks and tips to beat the broadness during the lockdown period and to improve our communities. Companies all over the world started thinking about coming up with new service ranges that enable their customers to stay connected as before. This exact pandemic situation has opened a new way of thoughts. Organizations cannot just stop functioning and wait until everything resumes back, so altogether each day they are coming up with ideas that can sustain both customers and employee. Aside from office work if we look at ordinary people, those who never expected, nor ever wanted to use digital technology to communicate or work now must. So, they are learning how this necessitates a new level of digital literacy for everyone.
From my point of view, the most outstanding benefit we have received as “human beings” is this lockdown period help us to build genuine relationships. We all have swamped living the life, many of us have lost those real, natural moments we have with our loved ones.it could have been the busy schedules running a rat race, rushing to be in urgent meetings. But now this COVID-19 situation has positively impacted the way we emote and maintain our relationships. As life slowed down, we have found ways to stay connected with people. More or less, this will gift you a recital of anecdotes to recall in the long run. This time nature has taught all of us a lesson which we should not forget at all. No matter how many external factors are there such as money, prestige or power, they have nothing to do with nature’s ultimate decision. Law of life is the same for everyone.
Every coin has two sides. With bad comes the good. Yes, the battle is quite hard and long. Anyway, we should win this. So let’s look forward and focus on the brighter side of this.
Stay physically distant, but mentally active!
