From December 2019 to March 2020, Novel COVID-19 has spread in almost all countries throughout the world creating a havoc among the people. Lockdown as a solutions to it has been implemented worldwide to bring the situation under control. Lockdown can help to reduce the spread of Corona virus which in turn will reduce number of Novel COVID-19 cases and the toxic contamination of environment. As a result the reduction of all type of pollution will lead to decrease number of patient related to air borne diseases like measles, chickenpox tuberculosis, etc. The purpose of this review article is to explain the impact of one month lockdown on global environment.
