As the virus spreads across mainland China and infects more people, government-mandated quarantines and people's unwillingness to leave their homes has made streets in China seem like desolate places. Take a look at these pictures and satellite images of completely empty streets in China amid the viral outbreak.
The Chinese city of Wuhan has been under complete lockdown since January 23 as the deadly new coronavirus has claimed the lives of over 800 people.
Take a look at these satellite images that showcase the difference in foot traffic ever since the coronavirus forced the city into lockdown.
Here are some pictures of desolate Chinese streets as the people opt to stay indoors rather than brave the street amid the viral epidemic.

People are staying indoors – empty streets, parks, & offices w/ no traffic in sight.
The Coronovirus is de-polluting China better than any previous policy has.
