Are not the twelve the night. It’s Friday. It is not cold. The images of the streets and squares of Malaga without people are previously unreleased. All over the world it has been left at home by the coronavirus. I had asked the administrations, political and health authorities. Here you can see the photogallery of the night.
Claimed responsibility and the citizens have responded: they have not left their homes and everything indicates that they will remain recluídas throughout the weekend. The campaign under the hastag #YoMeQuedoEnCasa has taken effect.
A city busy Malaga, who often live intense nights of Saturday, with bars and terraces, restaurants filled until the early morning hours, show snapshots difficult to remember at another time. Social networks had turned during the last few hours asking that it not getting out of the house. The call had been unánmime and the situation of crisis caused by the pandemic has had a result.
Malaga is the andalusian province most affected by the outbreak with over a hundred of infectious patients and the first two deceased. Bars, restaurants, cafes, shops, discos, parties, halls of public and private had been announced throughout the day that they were going to close from this night. Nobody could imagine that on the night of 13 to 14 march the city was going to present a picture as ‘ghostly’.
Since the areas most emblematic of the city of malaga (Larios street, Constitution square, walk in the Park, the Alameda Principal, pier one…) to the most densely populated (Carretera de Cadiz, Huelin, Bailén-Miraflores…) have been left deserted. Some point out that high hours of the dawn you can see it so little movement of people and vehicles in the city.
