Following the COVID-19 and the major disruption that has brought, the quarantine measures unexpectedly made Venice canals look clearer and cleaner. With no boats and the reduced traffic due to the country’s lockdown, small fish swimming around in the water canals are visible.
Except the negative impacts that the deadly pandemic is having, it has caused an unexpected positive side effect like this.
Specifically, a spokesman the Venice mayor’s office told to CNN that : “The water now looks clearer because there is less traffic on the canals, allowing the sediment to stay at the bottom”
Apart from the fish swimming around the Venice canals, there were also several dolphins seen in the Venetian Lagoon. At the same time, the Venice’s air pollution levels marked a drop, since there is less boat traffic than usual.
