Popular tourist places around the world look like swept clean. The reason for this is the corona virus. People avoid public places and sights and cancel their tripsso they don’t get infected.

A series of before and after satellite images now shows you how much the crowds have shrunk in many popular locations. These include, for example, the cathedral square in Milan and the al-Haram mosque in Saudi Arabia.

The aerial photos were taken by the US space company Maxar added. They were created at intervals of one year or sometimes only a few days from each other.

More than 98,000 people have now infected with the corona virus. Cases have been confirmed in more than 80 countries.
