The positive climate impact that China will be back on its feet again

satellite imagery provided by Nasa attracted a lot of attention because they showed a marked decrease of air pollution in chinese cities between January and February of this year. Many industries are pausing the work when the employee is isolated, in order to reduce the spread of the corona virus.

When the quarantine is broken, it is likely that the mills will have to work hard to be able to deliver the goods as promised.

" But in that regard it is no different to China, so a lot of the other countries, deliveries are bound to the contract. At the same time, can be enough that the employer will be greater. The companies they work for, is responsible not only for the salary, but also, for example, health care.
