SOCIAL, ENVIRONMENTAL, AND ECONOMIC EFFECTS OF COVID-19
Environmental change is one of the 21st century’s major threats. Despite all the attempts to preserve the natural world, humans have hardly moved towards progress, at least not to an impressive degree. However, COVID-19 has effectively restored the atmosphere to a considerable degree over the last several weeks. These changes in the atmosphere can have a favorable impact on the overall climate change. It affects the everyday actions of humans as well as the natural environment that surrounds them. This research throws light on the various effects of lockdowns on social, environmental, and economic activities worldwide.
