Air pollution is declining in the United States as states enforce lockdowns to prevent coronavirus from spreading

Air pollution has declined in some parts of the U.S. as millions of Americans are forced to be trapped by the coronavirus outbreak.

California has experienced the greatest improvement in air quality, particularly in the Bay Area and Central Valley, where stricter social distance guidelines have been implemented.

Other metropolitan areas, including Seattle, New York, Chicago, and Atlanta, have also declined after residents were asked to stay at home to limit the spread of the virus.

Air pollution has declined in some parts of the U.S. as millions of Americans are forced to be trapped by the coronavirus outbreak.

The images are designed based on data from the first three weeks of March.

This pollution is the result of burning fuel and emissions from vehicles and power plants.

In recent weeks, however, parts of the US have enforced lockdowns that allow only necessary travel to stop the spread of the coronavirus.

The coronavirus that started in Wuhan, China has never been in this outbreak before.

It started in December 2019 and has since infected more than 164 countries around the world.

The death toll from coronavirus now exceeds 15,000 and the number of cases worldwide has since risen to more than 348,000, with more than 40,000 cases and 484 deaths in the United States.

And as it makes its way to the U.S., officials have begun setting strict socialization rules for their state.

Many non-essential companies are closed, and some states have curfews.

All social meetings have also been canceled until further notice.

The image shows that the nitrogen dioxide drop was created by CNN using Sentinel-5P satellite data.

Fei Liu, an air quality researcher at NASA’s Goddard Space Flight Center, said, “This is the first time I’ve seen such a dramatic drop-off over such a large area for a specific event.”

“I am not surprised that many cities across the country have taken steps to minimize the spread of the virus.”

Seattle, which had one of the earliest coronavirus outbreaks, has also seen a drop in nitrogen dioxide levels

The New York Times has also released satellite images showing a massive drop in pollution in major metropolises.

Los Angles has been striving for strict socialization since early March, and since then the number of cars on the road has fallen by 40 percent, ultimately reducing air pollution.

Seattle, which had one of the first coronavirus outbreaks, has also seen a drop in nitrogen dioxide levels.

Earlier this month, the city of Washington requested residents aged 60 and over to stay at home, and shortly thereafter, Microsoft and Amazon closed their office doors and forced homework for their employees.

New York City is the newest metropolitan area to have a lockdown that went into effect Friday.

Researchers at Columbia University have seen carbon monoxide emissions in New York City drop by more than 50 percent in the past week.

Carbon dioxide levels have fallen by 10 percent, and methane has also dropped “ significantly, ” according to the Colombia team.

Last week, NASA and the European Space Agency released a separate set of satellite images that showed a dramatic reduction in the amount of harmful greenhouse gas emissions over China.

Stanford University researchers say that reducing air pollution in places like China has led to fewer premature deaths from inhaling toxic air.

However, the improved air quality around the world is unlikely to last in the long run, as scientists warn that things are likely to ‘return to normal levels’ when industry resumes.

STATE-WIDE CORONAVIRUS-LOCKDOWNS

In the most extreme measures to date, 100 percent of the non-essential workforce have been ordered not to go to work to combat the spread of COVID-19.

Non-essential gatherings of any kind are prohibited, people over 70 must stay indoors, and everyone must be 6 feet apart in public.
