The level of air pollution over China has decreased.
New satellite images released by NASA show that this coronavirus ☣ has a positive effect on the environmental situation in China.
Coronavirus still poses a threat to the entire world’s population, but the epidemic is also having a positive impact on the state of the environment of the Chinese state.
New satellite images NASA show that the level of air pollution in China has decreased sharply since the outbreak of the epidemic.

This harmful gas emitted by cars, power plants and industrial enterprises.
From 1 to 20 January of the pictures show a higher amount of NO2 in the air, and from 9 to 25 February traces the evolution of gas practically invisible.
Researchers believe that this reduction of the content of polluting substances in the air is directly related to the spread of coronavirus.
According to the United States space Agency, reducing pollution was the most noticeable, initially, in Wuhan, the city where the epidemic began.
