In Photos | Deserted Streets Flank a Coronavirus-hit Delhi

A photographer chronicles the near-empty tourist hotspots in India’s capital city amid the coronavirus outbreak.

Delhi is home to the contrasting confluence of wistful purani Dilli neighbourhoods and swanky South Delhi. However, with the alarming outbreak of the global pandemic. COVID-19, and the rising number of cases in India, the government has issued some necessary mandates that place a tight control on the tourist movement in the country, and within New Delhi. Nasir Kachroo walked through the now half-deserted tourist hotspots in the capital on March 17 to capture how coronavirus has affected the city.
