Earth is vibrating less because of little activity due to coronavirus lockdowns.

Articles by CNN, People and Nature support the claim that Earth has been vibrating less due to the impact of Coronavirus.

Articles by CNN, People and Nature support the claim that Earth has been vibrating less due to the impact of Coronavirus.The observations made by seismologists across Europe and the U.S. show that they have noted a reduction in seismic noise because of changes in human activity. As a result, there is less vibratory movement in Earth's upper crust. This phenomenon was first observed by Thomas Lecocq, a seismologist at the Royal Observatory in Belgium and by some research students. Consequently, the detectors can spot smaller earthquakes and monitor other seismic events.
