A global pandemic has hit the world and Puerto Rico is not an exception. A strict lockdown has been decreed since March 16th 2020. Only essential business and services are allowed to remain open. A curfew from 7pm to 5am restricts mobility within the citizens.

Almost no cars on the highway, beaches, parks, subway, businesses were closed. It’s being tough days for most of the people that depends on go out to get money.

To see very few people on the streets It’s a strange feeling, but I kind of like it for its uniqueness.
