As the world continues to grapple with coronavirus, the pandemic is having some unexpected side effects.

Take Venice, one of Italy's biggest tourist attractions, which is usually heaving with visitors throughout the year.

Right now, though, the whole country is under lockdown as coronavirus continues to spread, and locals in Venice have noticed that the water in the city's canals has become much clearer, with small fish visible swimming around.

Several people have uploaded photos to a Facebook group called Venezia Pulita (Clean Venice), attracting comments from other users.
