The greatest epidemics in history have wiped out practically whole civilizations, but the impact of an outbreak extends beyond death to include global economic collapse and climate disruption. Climate change is mostly the result of human activity on the planet. We can speculate that the global consequences of closing borders, bars, and schools, as well as travel restrictions and shelter in place orders, have benefited the earth. Mother Earth appears to be mending, at least for the time being, with the reduction of air pollutants and carbon emissions. Despite the positive decreases in carbon footprint, it is possible that the mitigation will only be temporary, medical and hazardous waste is currently being produced in large quantities by patients and healthcare personnel. COVID-19 added a new dimension to weather, climate, and water-related dangers, with far-reaching cumulative effects on human health and well-being. Extreme weather and climatic disasters amplified the consequences of mobility limitations, economic downturns, and agricultural sector disruptions across the entire food supply chain, increasing food insecurity and reducing humanitarian aid delivery. The epidemic also messed up weather forecasting and made catastrophe risk reduction more difficult. Scientists are also looking into the possibility of a link between disease transmission and climate change. So far, At this time, there is no conclusive evidence that weather (short-term fluctuations in meteorological conditions) or climate (long-term averages) have a significant impact on emergence or transmission of COVID-19 illness.
