The pandemic of the new coronavirus has completely changed the urban scenarios of the planet, emptying the streets of almost all the world and demanding immediate responses from governments – which have responded by increasing policing and the presence of the army on the streets of many countries.

Images show empty cities amid the Covid-19 pandemic

To illustrate this in the best possible way, the Cnet website has set up a photo gallery that summarizes how Covid-19 affected the lives of people around the planet. People in masks crossing empty streets, armed soldiers in cities and urban arts inspired by the pandemic are transforming the look of cities in early 2020.

The first image, for example, is from March 25 and shows a patrol in Pakistan. They are on the street to ensure that citizens will comply with the partial confinement imposed by the government in order to reduce the number of cases in the country, which has already registered 1,022 contagions and eight deaths due to the new coronavirus.

Even today, a photo of the Pestsäule (Plague Column) in the city of Vienna, Austria, shows candles that were lit asking for protection against the virus. Above them, a poster designed by a child bears the inscription "Protect us from the coronavirus".

The Pestsäule was erected in 1694, after the Great Plague of 1679, one of the last epidemics of bubonic plague recorded in Europe. At the time, about 76,000 people died in the region alone – but it is worth remembering that the epidemic was much greater and reached Germany, Austria and the then region of Bohemia.
