What’s Happening?

Not China, but Europe has now been declared as the epicentre of Coronavirus. Italy has been under a lockdown, and has now entered in its second week.

Yes! It seems like the dolphins have returned to Venice. Many Venetians are tweeting pictures of clean canals, fishes, swans and dolphins that have found their way back.

What Could Be The Reason?

Factories are shut, no one is travelling, hardly any flights or vehicles, hence hardly anything is contributing to the pollution. This is making the atmosphere cleaner, which in turn is making the nature flourish.
