Coronavirus’ Footprints in Vienna, March 2020

The fear of Covid-19 cleared public spaces worldwide within a few weeks. The pictures of this story document the growing global calamity in Vienna, Austria during the Coronavirus (SARS-CoV-2) pandemic in March 2020. The pictures document of what public life looks like during this 2020 Coronavirus outbreak.
When the Austrian Government decided quite early on, Mid March, to lock down the city / country, restrictions quickly resulted in closed restaurants and once-bustling museums, in eerie stillness of public spaces, recently emptied of the crowds they were built for. Unique moments though – to be there alone. An atmosphere of surprise, quietness and fear thought, announces big changes in short – and longer-term - future. People started hoarding products, which they consider key to maintaining routine life. Society seemed getting paralyzed and emptiness proliferated like the virus.
