Netziens took to the post to expressing how "humans have always posed a danger to the nature". Establishing "how the Earth breathes in the absence of humans", Twitterati took to the comments' section to opine on the situation.

According to a report in CNN, the Venice's Mayor said that however, less commute hasn't really improved the water quality.

"The water now looks clearer because there is less traffic on the canals, allowing the sediment to stay at the bottom," a spokesman said.

He further said that the less boat traffic has brought the sediments at the top surface and while the water quality may have not improved, the air quality has due to less vaporetti.

Meanwhile, on Monday Italy reported 349 new deaths from the COVID-19, taking its total to 2,158 since last month. It has been most affected by the novel virus after China.
