With Covid-19 bringing the world to a near standstill, virtually ending air travel and significantly reducing industrial output in many areas of the world, many of us might be wondering what the environmental impact of the pandemic is.
Have carbon emissions and pollution decreased, and if so, by how much?
What about waste – are we creating more of it due to the use of surgical masks and personal protective equipment?
And is more electricity being used as our activities have shifted online?
Some of these questions have been answered in a new infographic created by Venngage, using data collected all over the world to give an overview of the effect of the coronavirus on emissions, waste, wildlife and habitat and energy use.
