Desolate Baku: how city residents live during coronavirus pandemic

There are noticeably fewer people and cars on the streets of Baku after the introduction of a special quarantine regime. Exactly a year ago, during the Novruz Bayram holiday, streets, parks, and entertainment centers were crowded with people. Now, due to the coronavirus pandemic, the usually busy Baku Boulevard and the pedestrian Nizami street are empty and desolate, with almost no tourists left in the city. But the number of police officers and people in special equipment that carry out the disinfection of bus stops and streets has increased.
