The Lockdown Program In Italy Makes Water In Venice Canals To Be Clean

And now the muddy Venice canals have cleared up revealing the thousands of little fish that live there.

Many positive aspects of quarantine are carried out countries in the world with the spread of the coronavirus. Natural pollution that was very high both on land, water (sea, river, canal) and air is now quite sharply decreased. Most of the people time are inside the house not roaming outside. Likewise what happened in Italy.

Turns out the coronavirus quarantine not only stops the virus from spreading but also has some positive effects on nature. First, nitrogen dioxide (NO2) levels above Italy dropped significantly as more and more people began staying indoors.

Following the news of dropping NO2 levels, some people began speculating that the water cleared up due to reduced pollution. These rumors, however, were quickly debunked.

Like many other Italian cities, Venice went on lockdown following the outbreak of the coronavirus and its busy squares and canals that are usually full of tourists stand empty and desolate.

“The water now looks clearer because there is less traffic on the canals, allowing the sediment to stay at the bottom,” said a spokesman of Venice mayor’s office in an interview with CNN . “It’s because there is less boat traffic that usually brings sediment to the top of the water’s surface.”

"Turns out the fish lived in the canals all along, they simply weren’t visible due to heavy traffic."

Even if the reason isn’t reduced pollution, you can’t deny that the canals look so much better when they’re crystal clear rather than murky green.

"People had a lot to say about the cleared-up canals."
