Amazon Rainforest is always considered as the lungs of the world as it balances the ecosystem and world climate for decades. With the trend of global warming and climate change, Amazon went through several phases of destruction from deforestation, forest fires, illegal mining and now the coronavirus is killing the habitat of forest population and forming serious impact in the future.

Effect of Amazon forest destruction can be:-

1. Rainfall will decrease with time.
2. The groundwater ecosystem will get depleted.
3. Global warming to destroy the world.
4. Pollution to increase in its level.
5. More natural calamities to occur affecting our natural ecosystem.

What's the impact COVID on it?

Combined with a low rainfall forecast for the May to October dry season, this forest clearance creates the conditions for rampant wildfires, according to the Amazon Environmental Research Institute (Ipam). In tandem with an opening up of the rainforest to loggers, ranchers and miners, the coronavirus pandemic is spreading fast through Amazonas capital Manaus and indigenous communities. Smoke from forest fires could make it even deadlier, as it contains pollutants that have been linked to increased risk of dying from Covid-19.

“Covid-19 and deforestation are two crises that are entirely connected and it is having all the elements for the perfect storm.,” said Paulo Moutinho, a senior scientist at Ipam.
