The images were taken using Maxar's WorldView satellites, and show how what was once extremely populated areas such as tourist hotspots, airports and malls have been turned into vacant lots. The people that would usually be seen in these images are practicing social distancing to make an effort to stop the spread of COVID-19, and ultimately wipe it out entirely.

Even though it might be somewhat eerie to look at what would originally be highly populated areas, there is some positives to pull out from these images. We can see that China has set up some testing facilities in Wuhan where the virus originated from, and also some coronavirus dedicated hospitals. Germany has also set up testing facilities as well as a soccer stadium in Sao Paolo Brazil is being converted into a hospital.

According to Maxar officials, "Maxar is scanning our recent satellite imagery for the construction of medical facilities in response to the coronavirus. These seem to be popping up slowly at hospitals, in/around sports facilities and other places. We expect to find more of these facilities being creating in the coming days/weeks."
