&lt;p&gt;&lt;strong&gt;Paper Abstract&lt;/strong&gt;:&lt;/p&gt;

&lt;p&gt;Since its first confirmed case at the end of 2019, COVID-19 has become a global pandemic in three months with more than 1.4 million confirmed cases worldwide, as of early April 2020. Quantifying the changes of pollutant emissions due to COVID-19 and associated governmental control measures is crucial to understand its impacts on economy, air pollution, and society. We used the WRF-GC model and the tropospheric NO&lt;sub&gt;2&lt;/sub&gt; column observations retrieved by the TROPOMI instrument to derive the top-down NOx emission change estimation between the three periods: P1 (January 1&lt;sup&gt;st&lt;/sup&gt; &amp;ndash; January 22&lt;sup&gt;nd&lt;/sup&gt;, 2020), P2 (January 23&lt;sup&gt;rd&lt;/sup&gt;, Wuhan lockdown &amp;ndash; February 9&lt;sup&gt;th&lt;/sup&gt;, 2020), and P3 (February 10&lt;sup&gt;th&lt;/sup&gt;, back-to-work day &amp;ndash; March 12&lt;sup&gt;th&lt;/sup&gt;, 2020). We found that NOx emissions in East China averaged during P2 decreased by 50% compared to those averaged during P1. The NOx emissions averaged during P3 increased by 26% compared to those during P2. Most provinces in East China gradually regained some of their NOx emissions after February 10, the official back-to-work day, but NOx emissions in most provinces has not yet to return to their previous levels in early January. NOx emissions in Wuhan, the first epicenter of COVID-19, had no sign of emission recovering by March 12. A few provinces, such as Zhejiang and Shanxi, have recovered fast, with their averaged NOx emissions during P3 almost back to pre-lockdown levels.&lt;/p&gt;</subfield>
