I guarantee you’ve never seen anything like this before. These photographs we present you here today will tell a story that will live through generations.
The whole world has become inverted within a very short period of time. People have now practised to do things after thinking twice. The things we do are double checked and check listed.
As you know many areas are shut down by now. Belgium is the latest European country to introduce a lockdown on Wednesday, joining France, Italy and Spain. Belgium’s nationwide self-isolation policy is planned to run until the 5th of April, longer than the 15-day lockdown which is currently being executed in France and Spain.
The Republic of Ireland has expected to inform the public of emergency legislation on Thursday to allow for a state of emergency and shutdowns.
Some other countries including Bolivia and Jordan declared a lockdown starting from Sunday while Tunisia is about to have the same plan. The final decision of Colombia will be announced on Tuesday. Only two states in the United States have taken the same steps to shutdown: namely California and New York.
We had a different view on the world long before these measures were put forward.
Until now we have imagined the busy life of others. The rush streets of Manhattan. We knew the romantic holidays spent in travel destinations such as Venice or Pisa. The images of these places move in our head as we know everything about it.
However, thanks to technological development, we can see these places without leaving home at present.
Skyline Webcams and Webcamtaxi have given us the opportunity to see the views of the quintessential locations around the whole world. But, today the only thing that we are able to notice are the silence and solitude.
Let’s begin our observation with Venice, a place which has become very popular as the waters in the canals get clearer. The latest news about Venice is the appearance of swans.
As you know, Venice in Italy is one of the highest tourist destinations in the world. The reports reveal that over 26 million and 30 million visitors visit Venice per year. As in the photos below, Venice has received a chance to breathe due to the present situation.
The Piazza San Marco in Venice is the most popular public square where all people normally gather.
The emptiness of St. Peter’s Square in Vatican City, none of the birds can be seen.
In America, Hollywood uses this time to rehearse its lines indoors.
Have you all heard the well known Hollywood Walk of Fame where the golden stars line the way? Hope the answer is YES! It’s one of the most popular tourist attractions in California. Hundreds of people go on sidewalks having no concern whether it’s day or night. But, you’ll find them no more!
Times Square, I’m sure this incident caught on the image will chill down your spine.
The survey reports reveal that New York City has a population of approximately 8.7 million and comprises 5 boroughs sitting where the Hudson River meets the Atlantic Ocean. Manhattan is the core of New York city. It’s a densely populated place among the main commercial, financial and cultural centers. The iconic sites of Manhattan include skyscrapers such as the Empire State Building and sprawling Central Park. Broadway theater is also staged in neon-lit Times Square.
Here, you can see the present situation at one of the world’s most popular sites.
42nd Street in New York City is the centre of everything in New York. The virus has very bad impacts on the citizens of the Manhattan area. There are no buses to be seen. No pedestrians at all. This sight is a surprise to see as it has never happened earlier.
Las Vegas Boulevard is a crowded location with cars racing past neon-lit casinos and world class hotels.
One day in the evening, a long vehicle drove down the famous boulevard when Las Vegas was normally booming.
At the end we took a look at Puerta del Sol in Madrid.
The main square in the heart of Madrid is now silent as a painting.
But keep in mind that the only way and the best thing that you can do to help the present situation is to remain calm at home. Remember it’s a great help for the whole community. Maintain distance with others. Stay safe.
