    In lots of ways it is by forcing a shutdown on society where there is less industrial production and vehicles travels so, there is less fossil fuel burning.

    yes, on a planet 5 billion abortions short, it's helping at cleaning out the nursing homes in particular. with any luck it will become an annual virus like the flu and the common cold.

    During this pandemic work is stopped. People prefer to stay at home that is the main reason. No vehicle movement, no factory smoke. These all help in reducing the pollution

    No. Air pollution in China has already bounced back from astounding lows during the country's coronavirus shutdown to monthly levels exceeding those recorded during the same period last year. Chinese government figures confirm a spike in April, which the Finland-based Centre for Research on Energy and Clean Air (CREA) warns could herald the beginning of a "dirty" economic rebound from the crisis in China.

    eventually coronavirus will increase to such a high concentration in the air that people will catch just by simply breathing, thanks to all the dummies that don't wear masks.

    no because people are still polluting the planet even with coronavirus, there are still more than 7 billion people in the world, and pollution is still increasing

    Lockdowns and staying at home reduce the pollution somewhat.

    Is it enough to help the planet recover? Probably not

    In the short-term.  Many manufacturers were forced to close by governor mandates, but the demand still remains, so these months of clean air will be undone once the iron fist of the governors is removed.  Heil Whitmer!
