Creepy Drone Footage Of The Largest Cities In America Under Lockdown

Four of the greatest cities in the world stand empty in this spooky aerial overview of New York City, Seattle, San Francisco, and Los Angeles. Shot with a drone, this footage gives a glimpse into the eerie empty expanses left after each city went into lockdown in order to curb the spread of the novel coronavirus, COVID-19.

To see over 8.6-million US citizens remaining home in NYC, turning The City That Never Sleeps into a slumbering giant beset by illness is a bewildering realization. From Seattle, home of the US’s first coronavirus case, to the Los Angeles, The Bay area and beyond – the whole nation has transformed into a series of ghost towns.

Playing out like a scene from a fantasy-borne post-apocalyptic wasteland, each drone fly-through of New York City, Seattle, San Francisco, and Los Angeles proves the grim reality of a world overcome by a pandemic. The biggest cities in the world shutting down may be overwhelming, but it’s a much-needed unified step towards overcoming the spread of the coronavirus.
