ABSTRACT
The coronavirus outbreak firstly emerged from Wuhan, the economic hub of Hubei province, China, and within a short period, it appeared as a global threat. In response to the outbreak, COVID-19 has been declared as a global health emergency by the World Health Organization (WHO) on January 30, 2020. To contain the virus, the governments of the Coronavirus affected countries enforced lockdowns to ensure social distancing among the people. Additionally, people have been asked to use hand sanitizers, face masks, and gloves, etc. to prevent the effect of the disease. The lockdowns and excessive utilization of medical supplies around the globe has resulted in numerous positive and negative ecological impacts. Therefore, this study aims to review the existing literature on the environmental effects of COVID-19.
