Published 2021-06-30

Abstract

The climate is an important aspect when it comes to the well-being of living things. A primary health concern of the 21st century is the covid-19 pandemic. The outbreak of SARS-CoV-2 in Wuhan, China, in December 2019, and its dissemination to regional countries and countries affected worldwide today is the first recorded pandemic in humanity's history. Not only did the covid-19 pandemic significantly affect certain aspects of human activities, but it has also affected the economic conditions and health organizations tremendously. In the aftermath of the pandemic, lockdowns, isolation, and border closures have improved air quality by reduced traffic and manufacturing. Most of these affirmative ecological impacts are probably transient. However, they can indicate that improvements in lifestyle could provide us with immediate beneficial effects on the environment and show us the value of using methods that reduce travel, such as web-conferencing. Therefore, this pandemic can
encourage lifestyle changes with beneficial effects on the environment that
covid-19 is a universal calamity.
