Corona proved to be beneficial for the Ozone layer

The crack in the ozone layer has started to fill itself since the lockdown caused by the Coronavirus. Industries are shut down due to lockdown in various countries of the world after the Coronavirus, which does not emit toxic gases; the closure of millions of poisonous gas factories has allowed the earth to breathe, causing the ozone layer to fill itself.
Environmental expert Mr. Asif said we need to take more effective steps to keep the earth alive, be aware that ozone is a layer that not only prevents the sun’s radiation from reaching the earth but also eliminates its harmful effects on the earth. Poisonous gas converts carbon monoxide into carbon dioxide in combination with oxygen in the atmosphere, which is extremely harmful to the human organism and human health. The destruction of the ozone layer means a reduction in thickness or a crack in it. The biggest impact was on the snow-covered Antarctica area, he added.

Various investigations in the 1970s showed that poisonous gases from man-made compounds were destroying the ozone layer. In 1974, US environmentalists emphasized the need for awareness of the ozone base and explained that the hazard to the ozone layer could be eliminated in the next 75 years. Not only would the global temperature rise drastically in the event of collapse, but the melting of the south of the pole would destroy the coastal cities of the world in a few years.
In December 1994, the United Nations designated 16th September the Day of Ozone Protection, which aims to raise awareness of the importance of this layer.

The rapid development of the world, where many countries have entered the ranks of developed countries, has had irreparably dangerous effects on our land. The toxic gas carbon monoxide emitted from our factories converts to carbon dioxide in conjunction with oxygen in our atmosphere. Carbon emissions are extremely detrimental to the health of us and our planet, and they are also affecting the ozone negatively.
It was most affected in the snow-covered Antarctica area, where deep cracks formed in the ozone layer. Due to the loss of ozone, sunlight in this area started to come higher than before, which led to an increase in the average temperature of the area and on the other hand the rapid melting of the ice caused sea levels to rise.

Why ozone layer affected?
Seamless erosion of forests, Increase in the use of street-smoking vehicles and wagons, The poisonous smoke that comes out of it after burning the garbage, Use of chlorofluorocarbon, CFC compounds. The gas is used in energy saver bulbs, deep freezers, refrigerators, cars, air conditioners, foams, dry cleaning, fire extinguishers, cleaning chemicals, and fumigation.

What will happen if the ozone destroyed?
These losses will occur if the ozone layer is destroyed or its thickness is reduced.
The extreme temperature rises worldwide, Increasing the level of global oceans, flood fears around the world and fears of coastal cities being completely wiped out, the direct exposure of the sun’s radioactive rays to the earth can increase the incidence of various diseases and cancers in humans and animals, severe damage to trees and shrubs, degradation of agriculture due to hot weather, which is likely to cause famine and drought in many areas, the breeding of livestock in cooler areas is likely to end.

What can be done to save ozone?
Ozone protection is made possible by the use of eco-friendly electrical appliances and machinery. There is a need for long-term urban planning around the world, in which open, well-ventilated homes should be built and vegetated so that they stay cool and those living in them use minimal energy. The minimum emissions of harmful gases can protect this essential layer.
While high-tech technology has given us the gift of energy saver bulbs, deep freezers, refrigerators, and air conditioners, they are being used sparingly of chlorofluorocarbon (CFC) compounds, which are ultimately in our atmosphere. Deleting
These poisonous gases were badly damaging ozone. The Montreal Protocol determined the least use of these gases. Now, three decades later, 99% of the goals of this deal have been achieved.
What is the Montreal Protocol?

The Montreal Protocol is an international treaty designed to protect the ozone layer by phasing out the production of numerous substances that are responsible for ozone depletion. It was agreed on 16th September 1987 and entered into force on 1st January 1989. More than 150 countries overseen by the United Nations signed this agreement.
