Coronavirus pandemic disease (COVID-19) is a transmittable disease caused by a newly discovered coronavirus.
Most people infected with the COVID-19 virus will undergo mild to moderate respiratory illness and get recovered without requiring special treatment.
The ozone layer, also called the ozonosphere, the region of the upper atmosphere, between roughly 15 and 35 km (9 and 22 miles) above Earth’s surface. The ozone layer effectively blocks almost all solar radiation of wavelengths less than 290 nanometres from reaching Earth’s surface, including certain types of ultraviolet (UV) and other forms of radiation that could injure or kill most living things.
The Coronavirus pandemic has killed thousands of peoples and almost all the world is affected by this deadly pandemic. People confined to bed and losing their lives, schools are closed, the healthcare system is clogged.
Peoples lose their jobs, companies are facing financial ruin, stock markets are falling down and countries have to payout billions on bailouts and medical aid.
Whether anyone suffered or not, COVID-19 is an enormous stressor shaking up our psyche, sparking our fears and uncertainties.

The brighter side of Coronavirus on earth
The coronavirus pandemic has a lot of dark sides. Throughout the world, people get ill and die, schools close, the healthcare system is overburden, employees lose their jobs, companies facing financial problems, stock markets falling and countries have to spend billions on bailouts and medical aid.
And for everyone, whether directly hurt or not, COVID-19 is a huge stressor shaking up our psyche, triggering our fears and uncertainties.

The virus caused a shutdown or significant decrease in industrial activities. Factories are closed or operate far below their volume, road traffic has decreased radically and air traffic stopped, and the lack of tourism has evacuated the streets in overcrowded cities like Venice, Amsterdam and New York.
While this may be bad news for most people working in the affected industries, this is also good news for our planet. COVID-19 causes a remarkable demotion in greenhouse gasses and other air, water, and land pollution.
The fact is that the shutdown and lockdown of enormous parts of our economy are good for nature—at least in the short term. The chance is to keep parts of this in place also after the crisis to make long-term improvements.
Along the line of the previous opportunities, the current crisis provides us an opportunity to re-examine our lives and restructure it in a way that has less effect on our planet.
Earth’s Ozone Layer is Healing Itself
The ozone layer which encircles the earth is crucial in maintaining a balance of climatic conditions and also for keeping ocean currents on their natural course.
However, the activities of human beings over the past few decades resulting in the diminution of the layer. That, in turn, had thrown ocean currents off their usual course.
The ozone layer helps in soak up harmful ultraviolet rays of the sun and avert it from directly reaching the surface of the earth. However, the ozone layer has now begun to repair itself.
The continuing recovery has, according to ScienceAlert, stopped many dangerous changes in the Southern Hemisphere’s atmosphere.
New satellite surveillance and climate simulations, shared in a Science Daily research paper on Wednesday, show that the changing wind patterns have headed towards the ozone layer’s recovery.
