ARCTIC OZONE LAYER IS HEALED | BUT IT HAS NOTHING TO DO WITH LOCKDOWN
As per the reports, the ozone layer hole which was 1 million sq. km over the Arctic has now healed itself. Scientists have confirmed that the layer is healed but it has nothing to do with lockdown as much fake news was spread stating that positive effect of Global Lockdown, helping Earth’s Ozone layer is healing itself but Copernicus Atmosphere Monitoring Service (CAMS), the European Union’s Earth Monitoring Program announced that lockdown is not relevant with its Healing.
The unprecedented 2020 northern hemisphere #OzoneHole has come to an end. The #PolarVortex split, allowing #ozone-rich air into the Arctic, closely matching last week's forecast from the #CopernicusAtmosphere Monitoring Service.

CAMS (Copernicus Atmosphere Monitoring Service): “This Arctic Ozone hole has nothing to do with coronavirus related lockdown, but rather it was caused by an unusually strong and long-lived polar vortex.” In replay for a twitter user. This achievement was released on twitter by the European Union’s Satellite Monitoring Agency.
This Arctic ozone hole actually has nothing to do with coronavirus-related lockdowns, but rather was caused by an unusually strong and long-lived polar vortex. This article explains what caused it in more detail: https://t.co/Nf6AfjaYRi

Don’t Get confused with 1970’s depletion that was Antarctic Ozone Depletion and This recent one is Arctic Ozone Depletion.
This depletion has occurred in the North Poles Arctic region but how depletion of protective layer caused?
What were the reasons behind its depletion?
This ozone hole was first noticed by the scientist in March 2020 which was caused due to unusual climate conditions. The Arctic region is surrounded by land masses and mountain region that disrupts the weather conditions unlike its counterpart Antarctic, it is less isolated. These disruptions caused weakness in the polar vortex and hence less formation of O3 molecules in the Ozone layer.
Ozone layer and its importance?
The protective blanket is a layer of gas consisting of O3 molecules which works as a protective cover over Earth which filters UV rays from sunlight. By filtering UV rays from sunlight it helps living things to survive on the Earth. It was first discovered by French scientist Charles Fabry and Henri Buisson in 1913.
Finally, I hope you got information about OZONE LAYER IS HEALED | NOT BY LOCKDOWN I hope the given information was helpful to you. You can ask any of the doubts in the comment section. Thank you for reading this article till the end.
