The COVID-19 pandemic has crippled Metro Manila and is ricocheting its way around the globe. But amid the fear and sickness, Philippines country-wide quarantine has had at least one uplifting consequence: Manila Bay’s usually dark, murky waterways have turned noticeably more clear.
Factory shutdowns, travel bans and a squeeze on demand spell economic disaster, but it isn’t all bad news for the environment. The usual murky water of Manila Bay clears up in some areas as the natural harbor rests from usual human activities amid the country-wide enhanced community quarantine last week.
