New AirVūz contributor Aran77 brings us this incredible aerial tour of New York City during the Covid-19 lockdown.  In Spring 2020, New York City became the epicenter of Covid-19 in the United States; due to social-distancing measures, its streets became nearly empty. In this video, you will see an eerie sight of some of New York City's most iconic locations that would normally be congested with crowds and bursting with traffic turned into a desolate ghost town.  This video was a Drone Video of the Week finalist in June 2020.

The Persian Gulf emirate of Dubai is not just a world-class business center: it's also a major tourist destination, with billions of dollars invested in recent years in five star resort properties and other amenities for leisure travelers around the globe.  Virtually all of which stood empty when the UAE implemented strict social distancing measures to combat the spread of the novel coronavirus in the Spring of 2020; witness this haunting drone video record of the time in this incredible drone video by top DVOW finalist Bachir_Photo_Phactory.

Buenos Aires under COVID Quarantine

Rickdebene...

Winner of the DVOW contest, this fantastic video by Rickdebenedetto shows the great city of Buenos Aires, Argentina under a nationwide quarantine to fight the spread of the Covid-19 pandemic in the Spring of 2020.  While the country didn't reach its first 100 confirmed cases until the third week of March, a nationwide quarantine was declared on March 19.  With most of the confirmed cases concentrated in and around the national capital, one of the wealthiest and most cosmopolitan cities in South America came to resemble a virtual ghost-town.

As the worldwide Covid-19 epidemic spread throughout the world in the late winter and spring of 2020, the visual texture of the earth's populated areas fundamentally changed.  This was perhaps most evident from drone videos of the world's most recognizable cities and travel destinations, showing scenes reminiscent of a science fiction movie.  In this reel, we've compiled some of the most compelling scenes captured by the AirVuz drone pilot community around the world during this historic and often terrifying period.

Drone Video of the Week finalist ArturCarvalho brings us this brilliant video from Lisbon during one of the strangest times in the long history of the great Portuguese capital city: during the Covid-19 pandemic in the Spring of 2020.  As Spain became one of countries worst hit by the deadly virus, its neighbor Portugal adopted increasingly stringent social distancing measures to combat its spread.  The result is what you will see in the video - public spaces nearly emptied of people and ordinarily busy streets appearing virtually deserted.  

Lyon, France under Quarantine

In this excellent drone video by Lyon Drone Services, you'll see the great city of Lyon, France as it appeared virtually empty during the Covid-19 panedemic in 2020.  Located at the confluence of the Rhône and Saône Rivers about 470 km (around 300 mi.) southeast of Paris, Lyon is the center of France's second-largest metropolitan area.  The video features stunning footage of the city's riverfront, the impressive Basilica of Fourvière in the hills above the city, and the empty Place Bellecour, one of France's largest public squares.

In the late Winter of 2020, the spreading Covid-19 coronavirus epidemic pushed Italy into its worst crisis since World War II.  By the third week of March, Italy had lost nearly 5,000 people to the virus - the most of any country.  With the country more or less completely locked down, award-winning contributor Mauro Pagliai put together this moving video of some of his best footage from across his great nation.  From St. Peters Basilica in Rome to the Appenine Mountains of Abruzzo, his video stands as a tribute to the stricken country.

As New York City became the worldwide epicenter of the Covid-19 pandemic in the Spring of 2020, life in America's largest and arguably the world's most important city came to a virtual standstill.  With many hundreds dying every day, the city imposed a strict quarantine to save lives and keep its healthcare system from being overwhelmed.   In this fantastic drone video, you will see some absolutely amazing (albeit shocking) sights from around Manhattan during the height of the crisis.

Here's a haunting aerial view of the city of Chicago in a state of near-shutdown during the Covid-19 coronavirus pandemic in late March, 2020.  The video includes rush hour footage from the Loop district and Michigan Avenue as well as nighttime footage from the Wrigleyville and Boystown neighborhoods.  As the city began to emerge as one of the first non-coastal USA "hot spots", officials from Chicago as well as from the state of Illinois adopted increasingly stringent measures to effect social distancing. 

Empty Streets in Rome

Roma Italia

luigi@flya...

As the Covid-19 coronavirus unleashed its full fury on Italy beginning in March, 2020, the country began a roughly two week process of adopting successively more stringent social distancing rules.  While Rome was not as hard-hit as some of the country's northern regions, outdoor life in the national capital essentially ground to a halt by the end of the month.   Contributor Luigi@Flyage, working with various news sources, managed to capture these eerie scenes from the Eternal City under lockdown.

Top AirVuz contributor Niels Ahmes brings us this haunting drone video from the great city of Lima, Peru during the worldwide Covid-19 pandemic in the Spring of 2020.  Like its neighbor Ecuador, Peru was fairly hard-hit by the deadly virus, with nearly 30,000 confirmed infections and nearly 800 deaths reported by the end of April; the giant capital city was the epicenter of the national outbreak.  In order to combat the spread of the disease, the country went under a national quarantine on March 16.

Top contributor and pilot haussmannvisuals brings us these eerie aerial views of the German financial capital of Frankfurt in the latter part of March, 2020, as the worldwide Covid-19 coronavirus pandemic caused a virtual shutdown of activity across much of Europe.  As the German case count mushroomed from just over 100 at the beginning of the month to nearly 20,000 in just three weeks, the state and federal governments took increasingly active measures to impose social distancing as a means to control the spread of the disease.

New AirVuz contributor totoempainado brings us this stunning yet haunting drone video of the great city of Manila under a near-lockdown during the Covid-19 pandemic in the Spring of 2019.  The Philippines capital is the center of a metropolitan area that by some measures is over 20 million in population; it's  likely been centuries since it appeared as empty and quiet as it does in the video.  With its first Covid-19 case announced in late January, by late April the Philippines had seen over 8,000 confirmed cases and over 500 deaths.  

New York City: Covid-19 Epicenter

In the second half of March of 2020, New York City emerged as the epicenter of the worldwide Covid-19 coronavirus epidemic.  With case counts exploding by day, the USA's largest city went into a virtual lockdown to halt the spread of the deadly virus.  In this drone video by Artstew Motion, you will see this eerie sight from a bird's eye point of view; areas that would normally be thronging with crowds and bursting with traffic lie silently below, as the city sought to keep its health care system from being overwhelmed.

PatricioOs...

For a first upload to AirVuz, new contributor and pilot PatricioOsGa brings us this rather haunting video from Mexico City, Mexico before and during the Covid-19 pandemic which began in the winter of 2020.  The video starts with footage from January, 2020, before the largest city in the Western Hemisphere recorded its first confirmed infections.  Then you'll fast-forward to March 30th, when what amounted to a national quarantine was declared; the VFX-enhaced of the empty looking city are truly (as the title suggests) dystopian.  

Boston, Quarantined

The city of Boston was particularly hard-hit during the Covid-19 pandemic of 2020.  While much of the world's attention focused on the travails of New York City, the greater Boston area saw nearly 100,000 confirmed cases and around 7,000 fatalities by mid-June, more deaths than in any other major metropolitan area outside of NYC.  In this amazing drone video by Above Summit, you will see some incredible scenes of this ordinarily bustling metropolis while social distancing measures left its streets and public places virtually empty.  

Toronto: Canada's #1 City under Quarantine

Toronto Amidst the COVID-19 Pandemic

AerialsFin...

In this rather haunting drone video by new contributor AerialsFinest, you will see the virtually empty streets of Canada's largest city: Toronto, Ontario.  Given Canada's highly federalized structure, most social distancing measures were imposed at the provincial level.  As the most populous province as well as the location of Canada's "patient zero" (confirmed in Toronto on January 25th), Ontario was fairly quick to act, declaring a state of emergency on March 17th and closing most non-essential businesses about a week later.    

Atlanta, Georgia under Quarantine

Check out this inspiring drone video from Atlanta, Georgia under community quarantine during the Covid-19 pandemic in the Spring of 2019.  Shot by contributor Marco Hernandez, the video shows the nearly-empty streets of the great Southeastern USA city as social distancing measures resulted in nearly empty streets and outdoor public spaces in its central business districts.  While the southern Georgia town of Albany was hard-hit, as of early May the Atlanta area was seeing fewer infections and deaths per capita than most major US cities.

Montreal, Canada on Lockdown

Top contributor dizifilms brings us this rather haunting video of the great Canadian city of Montreal in a state of near-lockdown during the worldwide Covid-19 pandemic in March of 2020.  During the fourth week of that month, Montreal emerged as the worst Covid-19 "hotspot" in Canada; as of March 26, 2020, Quebec had about 40% if Canada's confirmed cases (roughly double the number in neighboring Ontario, and by far the most of any province), with nearly 50% found in and around its largest city.

Istanbul (and under its prior name, Constantinople) was the largest city in the world for centuries, and it continues to be one of the most important.  In this rather shocking drone video by Murat Turna, you will see Turkey's great metropolis in a state which would have been unimaginable at any other time in its long history: virtually empty.  Like the rest of Turkey, Istanbul was subject to strict social distancing measures to fight the Covid-19 pandemic in the Spring of 2020; the city of 15 million appeared to be a ghost town..

Ecuador's largest city and its commercial capital, Guayaquil became one of South America's worst "hotspots" during the Covid-19 pandemic in the Spring of 2020.  As the national death rate spiked to three times the normal rate (with most Covid-19 related deaths unconfirmed), the health care system in this large port city was overwhelmed.  In this video by Drone del Aire, you will see aerial footage of Guayaquil during the crisis; shots of empty streets and stadiums are interspersed with shots of the same places during normal times.

Amongst the vanishingly few benefits of the Covid-19 epidemic was a notable improvement in air quality in some of the world's most congested cities.  As businesses closed and "shelter-in-place" edicts became the norm, auto traffic around the world plunged and with it so did emissions.   Case and point is the great city of Jakarta, Indonesia; as seen in this video by ariotrihantoro taken on April 1, 2020, smog levels in the Indonesian capital city have plunged to levels not seen in decades.

The Mediterranean island nation of Malta saw its first Covid-19 coronavirus case confirmed on March 7, 2020, and within about a week the country had undertaken (more or less) the same measures as the rest of Europe to combat the worldwide epidemic.  In this excellent drone video by top contributor Ericbartolo, you'll see what this looks like from an aerial point of view.  Normally bustling streets and public squares of the country's two main islands are eerily silent and empty, with all nonessential businesses closed.

Florida was one of the last major states to order shelter-in-place during the 2020 Covid-19 pandemic.  Despite being the third US state to report a confirmed case, and with a particularly vulnerable elderly population, it wasn't until April 1 that Governor Ron DeSantis issued an order effectively closing most businesses in the Sunshine State.  In this drone video by AirVuz contributor drone_us, you'll get an aerial view of the Miami area as Florida's largest metropolitan area weathered the crisis.

The normally bustling city of Budapest, Hungary appears to be almost void of human activity in this video by The Hobby Traveler, shot while the Hungarian capital was in the midst of the worldwide Covid-19 pandemic in the Spring of 2020.  The video uses a combination of drone and ground camera footage to show how social distancing measures imposed to slow the spread of the deadly virus created eerie scenes of car-less Danube River bridges, empty public squares, and public transportation facilities with no passengers.

The capital of Italy's Lombardy Region, Milan found itself near the epicenter of the Covid-19 pandemic that ravaged the country in the Spring of 2020.  While the worst hit areas were in the surrounding provinces, Italy's second-largest city saw thousands of infections and its (metropolitan) population of over four million was forced to comply with strict social distancing measures to combat the spread of the deadly virus.  Check out these eerie aerial scenes from the great city under quarantine by AirVuz contributor and pilot davidegalloni.

Ireland was fairly quick to take decisive action as the Covid-19 epidemic took hold in the winter of 2020: from its first confirmed case on February 29, it was less than two weeks before the Prime Minister ordered all of the country's schools closed.  On March 27, a much more restrictive order went into place which amounted to "shelter in place" for most of Ireland's population.  In this rather eerie drone video from muno.drone explore, you'll see the great capital city of Dublin on virtual lockdown.

In the second half of March, 2020, New Orleans, Louisiana became one of the USA's Covid-19 pandemic "hotspots".  It was generally believed that the annual Mardi Gras celebration in February, in which over a million streamed (unaware) into the Big Easy, contributed to the rapid spread of the disease here.  In this drone video by Bumble Bee Productions, you'll see aerial glimpses of the city shot over the course of a month, when increasingly stringent social distancing measures caused outdoor life to be drastically curtailed.

As the Covid-19 coronavirus spread through Pakistan in March of 2020, initially the southern province of Sindh saw the most confirmed cases.  As the month wore on, the giant province of Punjab emerged as the country's epicenter.  The Punjab outbreak was concentrated in its capital city of Lahore, Pakistan's second-largest city after Karachi and one of the 20 largest in the world.  AirVuz contributor Videoline productions managed to aerially film the great city as it was virtually shut down by social distancing measures.

For reasons which were not initially clear, by early April of 2020 Ecuador had become the epicenter of the Covid-19 pandemic in South America.   The vast majority of the confirmed cases and deaths at that point had occurred in Guayaquil, the country's commercial capital and largest city.  Nevertheless, by mid-March the entire country was under a virtual quarantine.  This led to eerie scenes like what you'll see in this drone video by Ecu Drone: the national capital Quito in a state of near-shutdown.

As New York City emerged as the epicenter of the USA's Covid-19 outbreak in the Spring of 2019, cities and communities surrounding America's largest city came to resemble ghost towns.  In this piece by AirVuz contributor Manx.Cat, you'll see the city of New Haven, Connecticut under a virtual lockdown.  The home of Yale University (America's third-oldest college and one of its most prestigious), New Haven is about 140 km (around 80 mi.) northeast of New York City, on Long Island Sound.

In this drone video by AirVuz contributor Aces Up, you'll get an aerial tour of Las Vegas during one of the strangest time in the city's history: during the Covid-19 pandemic in the Spring of 2020.  With its local economy dominated by tourism and convention business, America's gambling saw profound dislocation when social distancing measures forced the citiy's casinos and other public spaces to shut down.  With no tourists and hundreds of thousands of gaming and hospitality workers laid off, the city took on the look of a ghost town.

Seen in this drone video by new AirVuz contributor and pilot feki.m90, the Macedonian capital city of Skopje appeared to be a ghost town during the Covid-19 worldwide pandemic in the Spring of 2020.   Macedonia (sometimes called North Macedonia) confirmed its first novel coronavirus infection on February 26, by a traveler who had returned from Italy.  A State of Emergency was declared on March 18; by the middle of April, the small Southeast European country had reported over 1,000 cases and dozens of deaths;

As California endured weeks of lockdown during the Spring 2020 Covid-19 pandemic, there were a few bright spots.  One of them was the virtual disappearance of smog over Los Angeles.  While the city's air quality had been improving for decades, the dramatic drop in road and air traffic during the quarantine resulted in the clearest skies over LA since the dawn of the automobile.  In this drone video by OCDroneProductions, you'll get a bird's eye view looking south over Dodger Stadium towards the skyscrapers of downtown Los Angeles.

While Colombia didn't see its first confirmed Covid-19 infection until the second week of March, 2020, the country was fairly quick to adopt strict social distancing  measures to combat the spread of the deadly virus.  President Iván Duque declared a National Emergency on March 17, and a nationwide quarantine on March 21.  In this excellent drone video by jm_photography, you'll see the town of Envigado under a near-lockdown during this challenging time.  Envigado is situated southeast of Medellin, in the Antioquia Department.

Italy's northern Lombardy Region was the epicenter of the country's Covid-19 outbreak in the Spring of 2020.  Not surprisingly, at fabled Lake Como (which is located due north of the regional capital, Milan), things looked far from normal during this time.  In this eerie drone video by AirVuz contributor Marchino, you will see what the lake looked like during this historic period.  The video was filmed in and around the town of Como, which lies at the south end of the western of the two southern branches of the lake.
