1. Reflect on the COVID-19 pandemic related pollution and explain if this is Anthropogenic in nature.
1.The contribution of COVID-19 pandemic to marine litter pollution for example masks along the oceans areas and along the streets.hence it's anthropogenic.
2.Beaches in urban areas had higher quantities of COVID-19 related items attributable to the ability to purchase and lifestyle which have increased pollution in urban areas.hence it's anthropogenic.
3.Most of the recreational beaches had no COVID-19 related products which could be due to beach closure during COVID-19 season hence anthropogenic.
4.Local waste problems have emerged as many municipalities have suspended their recycling activities over fears of virus propagation in recycling centres.
5.Many export-oriented producers produce volumes far too large for output to be absorbed in local markets, and thus organic waste levels have mounted substantially.
6.Because this waste is left to decay, levels of methane emissions, a greenhouse gas, from decaying produce are expected to rise sharply in the crisis and immediate post-crisis months causing pollution.Hence anthropogenic.
