Drone footage captured the deserted streets of Mexico City on Monday, amid the coronavirus pandemic.

On March 30, the government of Mexico extended the suspension of non-essential activities to April 30 in a bid to limit the spread of the virus.

Citizens were urged to stay at home, especially those who are more vulnerable, such as the elderly or people with underlying conditions.

The government had also ordered closures and the suspension of tourism throughout the country.

According to John Hopkins University, there are over 2,100 registered cases of coronavirus infections and 94 deaths as of Monday.
