Satellite images show the impact of coronavirus in US

The coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic continues to spread and create chaos all over the world. As of March 27, the coronavirus has affected more than 5,30,000 people in 176 countries and claimed more than 24,000 lives, according to data compiled by Johns Hopkins University.

The United States now has the most active coronavirus cases of any country in the world, passing Italy and China. While most states in the US are under lockdown but the number of new cases announced each day continues to climb.

The Coronavirus slowdown in the US is visible in satellite images. Places like airports, shopping malls, highways, theme parks, and famous tourist attractions are all deserted now.
