It’s April here in Istanbul and Turkey is at a point where the country has the fastest rising number of COVID-19 infections. In the world. Istiklal street, where usually a million people pass through every single day, is empty.

There is nobody around Galata tower, Kadiköy is empty, the streets of Besiktas empty. The mosques are closed for communal prayer, almost all shops stopped their business, flights, border crossings and travels between cities are suspended. Schools closed. People are ordered to work from home. To stay at home.

Everyone under the age of 20 and over 65 is ordered to stay at home. At all times. All citizens have to wear a facemask when shoppin or visiting crowded places. There are disinfectants, signs that remind of the social distance and the police make sure that there are no crowds outside.

This is a time we can only pass if we all stick together. Well.. together but separately
