Manila lockdown


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.
