In just a blink of an eye, the entire world was shaken by a microscopic pathogen that causes severe pneumonia-like symptoms to its unwilling victims. A novel strain of the coronavirus, now officially named SARS-CoV-2, was first identified in Wuhan City, China, where reports of residents falling ill to a seemingly respiratory illness were recorded. The spread of the coronavirus disease (COVID-19) was swift. In just a matter of days, the virus was able to go beyond the Chinese borders and infect millions of people in every world continent.
Who would have thought that a virus that measures less than one nanometer would be enough to bring the whole world to its feet? Now, the COVID-19 pandemic has introduced us into a world of new normal. We can no longer do the usual outdoor activities together with our friends and loved ones. As much as possible, we must stay inside our home to avoid catching the virus.
In this case, travels and vacations are affected, as nations impose strict lockdown measures, preventing the inflow of people and the subsequent human-to-human infection. With very little number of people going to long trips, Mother Nature is said to finally have its much needed break from us, humans, who sometimes cause the environment’s deterioration.
Nature Heals As Humans Tries To Figure Out A Cure For A Dangerous Disease
I bet that you are among those many people who have already grown frustrated with these travel bans, spoiling their much-awaited trips that they already planned way before the COVID-19 pandemic broke out. However, our own health and safety are at risk here, and perhaps you understand this too well by now, hearing all the horror stories of people catching the virus. For now, just think about how our little sacrifice of staying indoors not only protect ourselves and others from the threat of the virus, but also allows nature to regenerate.
We are often told that due to human’s irresponsible practices, we act as if we are the virus that harms Mother Nature. Good thing that we have picked up some habits such as waste segregation to help nature. Now that we are away from nature, we are starting to see how nature’s less interaction with us actually brings benefits. We have seen a couple of pictures of the environment turning cleaner and clearer than before. The sky has turned more blue and the waters becoming crystal clear. Wild animals have become more visible in their natural habitats than before. These are all great indication that our absence from nature allows it to thrive.
