Drone Footage Shows Nearly Deserted Streets of Havana Amid Coronavirus Crisis

Drone footage captured some of the once-crowded hotspots of Havana now left nearly deserted amid the coronavirus pandemic, on Sunday.

Some of the historical landmarks of the Cuban capital, such as the streets of Old Havana city centre, including Saint Francis of Assisi Square and Basilica or the famous Malecon esplanade appeared quieter than usual due to restriction measures over coronavirus concerns.

After 21 coronavirus cases were reported, the government put in place a plan for employment protection as well as a ban on tourists and a lockdown for at-risk groups on March 20.

With free universal healthcare and the world’s highest ratio of doctors in regards to the population, Cuba also prepared a “prevention and control” plan in January 2020, training medical staff and organising quarantine facilities.

As of Sunday, Cuba stands at 1,369 coronavirus cases and 54 fatalities, based on data compiled by Johns Hopkins University.
