In the article, “The Bright Side of Quarantine,” (BTW, btwuser, 2020) I learned that although quarantine had a lot of negative outcomes, there is one positive outcome that came from it. For instance, we have cleaner air and water in our world. In particular, in Italy the boat traffic caused them to have “mucky” water, however, with the pandemic, there was less traffic so their waters cleared up. Another example of this is in China where there was a large amount of air pollution, there were not many animals there. However, the pandemic allowed them to come back and the air has become more clear for its citizens as well. All of these effects of the pandemic happened rather quickly over time. The pollution dropped in a matter of two weeks. 

I think what has happened during the pandemic in regard to air pollution is amazing and a great way to stop pollution from growing so much. I also believe that even though there have been many negative setbacks to quarantine, it is great that we did get something great out of it. In addition to this, the air quality for humanity has gotten so much better so we should continue to take care of our Earth.

What other positive outcomes have come from quarantine?
