'The Silent Islands' - Malta during COVID-19 pandemic

AIRVŪZ STAFF NOTE :

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.
