Coronavirus Lockdown Clears Air, Indian People Can See The Himalayas After 30 Years

Ankita Chetana |Apr 16, 2020

With a distance of just 200 kilometers from Punjab (India) to the Himalayas, this mountain range appears visible to the northwestern state of India after 30 years due to the coronavirus lockdown.

After a nationwide 21-day coronavirus lockdown in India, the air pollution levels seem to go down, signifying the positive effects on the environment. Last month, India's Central Pollution Control Board showed a report about the air quality of the country. According to its data compared to the data before the curfew, air quality is improving significantly.

The Himalayas can be seen now from Punjab, India which is about 200 km away from the mountain range.

Several people took to Twitter to share pictures and tweet about the visible Himalayas for the first time after 30 years. Check out the below:

Many others have been wondering if the statement that residents in Punjab haven't seen the mountain range for 30 years. Otherwise, it is true that this has occurred for decades until the coronavirus lockdown helps to clear the air.

One of the main reasons for this issue is air pollution in India. Some cities of the country have even topped the list of 'the most polluted cities in the world' over the years. In 2019, 14 amongst the 20 cities were included in the most hazardous air quality, making India become the worst polluted country in the world.

In November last year, the government declared a public health emergency when the air quality index (AQI) level was over 800 in some areas of New Delhi. This index was three-fold to the hazardous level.

Nonetheless, when COVID-19 hit the globe, life has witnessed an upside due to the coronavirus lockdown. This doesn't only happen in India but Italy, China, and the Middle East also acknowledge this positive change.

Recently, PM Narendra Modi announced another 19-day lockdown to prevent the spread of the global pandemic. It brings the hope of a better situation for both people's health and the environment.
