As millions of people around the world lock themselves indoors in order to prevent transmission of the dreaded coronavirus, the world outside looks eerily abandoned.

The absence of humans and smoke belching vehicles is having a profound effect on the environment, not seen, perhaps, since the Industrial Age began.

The atmosphere has become cleaner with significant drop in nitrogen dioxide pollution.

The normally polluted waters of the canals of Venice have become so clear that one can see the bottom.

In Sassari, the second-largest town of Sardinia, wild boars are roaming the streets, and in Rome’s many fountains ducks are taking advantage of the lack of tourists. Aside from these occasional visitors, public spaces across the world have become terribly devoid of life.

Starving monkey 'gangs' battle in Thailand as coronavirus keeps tourists away

In one of the more unusual incidents being attributed to the new coronavirus outbreak, a turf war between dozens of street monkeys and temple monkeys broke out in Thailand's historic city of Lopburi on Thursday (March 12).

According to city residents, the furry fracas likely resulted from a sharp dip in tourism to the 800-year-old city — and thus a dip in free food offerings to thousands of local monkeys.

wow amazing, you can see the bottom of the rivers in venice.

Sidenote: great job on ebay for the cringeworthy advertising
''Ebay is basically Clickadilly circus... '' what the ..

I'm glad there's some positive out of this. The environment has needed a break for a long long time


woah those macaques in Thailand, I wonder if they'll have trouble getting them to disperse when the isolation/quarantine is over

For now, i'm sure they are having a great time roaming free unbothered by nothing and no-one

The Quarantine Quarters of Dubrovnik

Social distancing and quarantine are not new concepts. During the Middle Ages, when Europe and Asia were devastated by deadly outbreaks of plague and small pox, physicians had no idea about viruses and bacteria, but they knew enough to isolate the infected to arrest the spread of the disease.

The first official decree to introduce quarantine was by the Republic of Ragusa, now the city of Dubrovnik in southern Croatia. Located on the Adriatic coast, the Republic of Ragusa had an active port through which people and goods entered from all over the world.

When plague broke out in the 14th century in countries across the Mediterranean and the Balkans, the Great Council of the Republic passed a legislation according to which all merchants, sailors, and goods arriving from plague-infested areas were required to spend a month in quarantine.

Only if it was proven that the person was healthy, after the end of the quarantine period, was he allowed to enter the city.
