With normally heavy traffic and lively crowdedness, these images are a sight for sore eyes. While it’s beautiful to see Lebanon as though frozen in the eternity of times, one can’t shake off a wave of sadness at these scenes. Such stillness in a country with so much life to give is a bit unsettling.
We’re not alone, though. Photographs like these have been taken around the world where the coronavirus is forcing people into quarantine.
On the bright side, satellite images have shown that air quality has improved in those countries, even in Lebanon, thanks to the coronavirus. A decrease in air pollution, yay Earth!
In fact, it seems that Earth is healing itself by giving humanity a long-overdue wake-up call. Painful as it is, the world is getting to realize that they can no longer take our planet for granted, nor our coexistence as one human race.
