9 Dystopian Pictures Of The Coronavirus Crisis That Were Unthinkable Just A Month Ago
Life is currently on hold for at least one third of the world’s population, an unprecedented situation brought on by the global spread of coronavirus.
People have had to quickly adapt to fundamental changes in the way they live their lives, from entire countries on lockdown to the now-eerily familiar sight of their leaders presenting ever-rising death tolls.
The pandemic has led to images that would have been unimaginable, even just months ago. 
Here are nine pictures that illustrate how much has changed in such little time.The Pope giving blessings to an empty St Peter’s SquareAs mass public gatherings are now banned in many countries, places used to constantly hosting thousands of people now stand empty.
