The footage shows how clean the air is after three months of coronavirus closure in Bangkok, Thailand.

The tropical skyline was clouded at the beginning of the year by a toxic smog of harmful PM2.5 particles caused by construction, cars, and agricultural fires.

However, since many projects have been put on hold and builders have been sent back to neighboring countries, pollution has decreased.

A blanket tourist ban since late March that is still active has also significantly reduced the number of cars, taxis, minivans, and coaches on the street.

Amazing shots taken this morning in the Huai Khwang district of the capital city show the remarkable difference.

The tiny PM2.5 particles that remain trapped in the atmosphere and have burdened tens of thousands of residents with breathing problems have almost disappeared, while the clear sky provides a kilometer-long view of the flat landscape.

Thailand has not registered any new locally transmitted cases of Covid-19 in over a month.

Officials have loosened restrictions on strip clubs and soap massage parlors, which may finally open from July 1st. However, international tourists are still prohibited.

An advantage of the closures was the low pollution and the clear sky due to fewer cars on the streets, reports the Center for Research on Energy and Clean Air (CREA).

However, the gradual easing of measures over the past month has led to an increase in deadly nitrogen dioxide in the air in more than 20 European cities, including Paris, London and Rome.

In London, nitrogen dioxide (NO2) concentrations decreased by up to 33 percent or 10 micrograms per cubic meter (µg / m3) during the closure.

NO2 levels reached a low point in the British capital in late April amid the county’s closures.

CREA data shows that a decline in NO2 levels in London is particularly pronounced after the nationwide blockade on March 24th. At the end of April, the NO2 values ​​reached a low of around 20 micrograms per cubic meter (µg / m3) before rising steadily

Since then, the city has seen a 34 percent increase in NO2 from the lowest air quality measurement during the closure to the last measurement this month, coinciding with the gradual lifting of government restrictions on social distance.

Air pollution over China dropped from February, when the country forced locks due to the corona virus. However, new data show that emissions have risen again since orders were lifted in April. This was announced last month.

NASA and the European Space Agency (ESA) have published images showing that the nitrogen content of vehicles and industrial plants is almost back to normal this time of year.
