Because of the quarantine imposed in connection with the coronavirus pandemic, the Venetian channels of the flock are much cleaner. Local residents also noted that swans returned to the city, which were previously frightened by gondolas with thousands of tourists. Positive changes in water quality in canals and in general in The Venetian lagoon is visible to the naked eye - this is evidenced by numerous photos and videos posted by local residents on social networks.
Crowds of tourists and even the Venetians themselves disappeared from the streets of the beautiful city on the water — the Italian authorities forbade the population of the country to leave their homes without a valid reason. Therefore, sociable and active Italians are forced to sit at computers and near televisions.
Traffic in the canals of Venice has completely stopped and because of this, water pollution with household garbage and petroleum products has practically stopped. The townspeople are surprised to notice how quickly nature takes its course — first fish began to be noticed in the water, and later swans returned to the city, which were very rare here.
This is how one of the residents of Venice expressed his delight on Twitter.
Publications with swans instantly scattered around the world and gathered a lot of likes and enthusiastic comments. Some even noted that quarantine, on the occasion of the coronavirus, can be an excellent "vacation" for many tourist places on the planet, where the load from human activity is especially high.
Now Italy is considered the epicenter of the European COVID-19 epidemic — more than 35 thousand people have fallen ill in the country, and the number of deaths from complications caused by the virus exceeds two hundred per day.
