Wuhan on Lockdown: Drone Footage

Just reading about the progression of the coronavirus is frightening enough, but it sent a new kind of chill down my spine to watch this drone footage of Wuhan, the epicenter of the outbreak, on lockdown. Eerily empty, it feels like a snapshot of humanity in the past tense, with all the trappings of a built society lingering uselessly after the removal of people. Here and there, you’ll spot a few lonely souls on the streets, driving or even biking to some lonely destination, but in a way that makes it even spookier, like continued echo of desperation. I can only imagine what the residents of Wuhan are feeling, essentially marooned in their own dwellings.
