As a result of the restrictions being imposed, there has been a fall in economic activity, and therefore a sharp drop in air-pollutant emissions from road traffic and industries. In fact, concentrations of nitrogen dioxide (NO2), one of the main tracers for these activities, in the ambient air of France’s major cities only reached half their expected levels.
