Empty Paris

It took several additional days after the speech of the French President, Emmanuel Macron, but the containment measures necessary to fight the Covid-19 outbreak were finally imposed in France and in Paris.

Little by little, the streets of the capital emptied out: the strollers along the banks of the Seine, the traffic jams on Rue de Rivoli and Place de la Concorde, the tourists arriving by busloads to admire the Eiffel Tower from the Trocadero...all gone.
Museums, monuments, markets, department stores...all closed.

There are still a few isolated silhouettes left, certainly allowed to be outside by way of exception: basic groceries, sports or jobs vital to the survival of the nation.
There are still, after all that, those who, deprived of homes, cannot stay at home.
