One humorist said that one benefit of the present lockdown is the cleaner air. Pollution had gone down remarkably because public transportation is banned and private car owners are discouraged to travel because of the numerous checkpoints on the road. It was said in jest but it is true that the air has become cleaner since the smoke belching buses and trucks are not on the road anymore.
What if the lockdown would last for 1 year? I guess if that happens then we can believe that nature has done it to us or should I say done it for us. We need the clean air and isn’t it a coincidence that the corona virus makes it difficult to breath like there is too much pollution? I am not superstitious but this situation is telling us something.
Is there smog in your main road?

Based on your geographic location, it’s so amazing to see Philippines resting from years of heavy trafffic, smog and pollution. How are the people doing with food supplies and basic needs?
i live out in the country – so the air is pretty clear. Still, nice to see fewer cars on the road!
