Novel coronavirus 2019 or Covid-19 has murdered more than 154350 and infected more than 2256844 people across the world. Due to its infectious nature, national lockdowns can be seen in many countries. This lockdown has proved coronavirus a blessing in disguise. reduction in air pollution has been noticed in many cities as NO2 and PM 2.5 levels has dropped. Water quality of Yamuna, Ganga, Venice and many other rivers has upgraded as pollution level has depleted. Wildlife can be seen on empty streets of the previously crowded cities. Decline in CO2 emissions and seismic noise under the earth crust has been reported by the experts. Although the world economy has dropped to its lower level, world ecology has jumped indeed. There is need to divert the industries towards renewal energy as an alternative to declined economy. One to two weeks national lockdowns twice or thrice a year could be an option for the upcoming governments of the countries to let our earth breath freely for some time.
