According to the UN World Meteorological Organization (WMO), the phenomenon was driven by ozone-depleting substances in the atmosphere and a very cold winter in the stratosphere. The two factors combined to give a very high level of depletion.

“It’s now back to normal again…the ozone hole has closed,” said WMO.

All of this was completely unrelated to the current pandemic. The Earth has several ways of healing itself from any detrimental change, with or without the current COVID-19 lockdown around the world. This only goes to show just how wonderful the planet is.
