Ghost town: how the fight against coronavirus affected the life of New Yorkers
Have you ever seen half-empty Times Square in New York, and subway cars at rush hour with a lot of empty seats, and roads without cars? This is exactly the situation in the largest city in America today. The blame for this is the outbreak of the coronavirus and the restrictive measures that followed. The details are actively shared by the citizens themselves on social networks.
What's going on in new york
After New York State's coronavirus infection rates were among the highest in America, state authorities introduced a number of restrictive measures. The latter entailed the closure of restaurants, theaters, schools and other institutions. This greatly influenced the life of New Yorkers.
On social networks, local residents are actively discussing the situation in the city. They share photos and videos that capture the deserted streets of the city and subway cars.
As one of the inhabitants of the Big Apple writes on his page in TwitterLeaving the office after work, he found that on the street no cars.
“I never saw New York so empty,” he wrote, confirming his words with an attached video.
I've never seen NYC so empty before.
