Driving Through Central London in Lockdown…

Recently we had to do a groceries and supply run for people in our community who are vulnerable and a friend who lives in Central London. So we took the opportunity to film our journey to see the impact of the lockdown on Central London’s streets.
If it's not obvious already, this is serious. The UK government has asked for all retired doctors and nurses to return to work, and 20,000 have returned. They've even asked for the help of 250,000 volunteers from the public to help with the crisis, and more than 400,000 people have volunteered. It's a serious crisis, but it's great to see people coming together to face it. Let's do our part. Stay home. Save lives.

      I live in Malta. Our capital city, Valletta is a complete ghost town. The only few people you would see walking around are either locals going to buy food or medicine or parlament workers going to work. Its insane how one of the most beautiful and tourist central city in all of Malta is completly deserted and that is how it should be no one should go out unless you absolutly need to. Stay safe

      Hi! I'm from Italy and this is my 20th day of quarantine and I can't wait for the emergency session to end up hugging all my friends and relatives. Every day the fire trucks pass by with messages of staying home and not going out. The streets are very quiet. Be safe :)

    Never been to London but it's like my childhood dream. Even in movies and shows and stuff, it's always so full of people. Seeing it like this is surreal but also, I really appreciate that you guys were showing around because we rarely get to see it without the people around and just appreciate the architecture. And I have no concept of how close all these famous places are to each other until I saw this video HAHA

Not Even in the building compound! Everybody here is just having a bloody "Party of their Lives"! People in India please stay at home. For God's sake!

    Hi you guys.. well, maybe my coment is a little late, but being the 23th of May here in Santiago de Chile, things are pretty rought I could say cause, Chile might be famous for their wines and for the tourism, the south and north of Chile, Alexis Sanchez and so on.... but, there is a side B which I don't know hoy many foreigners are aware of. The thing is... Chile has a trouble with social clases and there are people who are struggling with safety because either they are homeless or do not have a proper house to live in... so... I don't know, It's been difficult, cause also we are now begining the winter season and when the colder months come in, maybe we are gonna be living what Italy lived in a certain point. The hospitals are not enough for all the amout of people cause in a normal year, they already colapse when the influenza comes which affects mostly children and older people, so now plus the coronavirus. Cuarantine has been declared for all the great Santiago but there are still queues at the supermarkets and people still get heaped at local fairs, although I must say that the streets are a lot more empty than normal.
    Changing the subject, London looks so pretty !! I'd love if u gave me a tour IF I get the chance to go there

    I'm surprised it's that empty, given it's central London, a usually packed city. My area probably barely gives a fuck because it feels normal besides there being no school and masks/gloves worn everywhere. ( in terms of in the middle of quarantine, my area's opened up a little now )

    Ever since the lock down I haven't went outside because I'm not supposed to and in the Philippines where I live there are communities called barangays and from what my parents said there are barricades on the entrance and exits of the barangay and we have to have a quarantine pass and to get the quarantine pass you have to have an ID at the end of the day you are supposed to give the passes back and only one person can go outside each day.

    We had people outside since day 1. People in Beijing and China doesn't give a crap, especially the elders. I remember my mom telling me one day (quite a while ago) than a 70-year-old grandpa was going to get medicine (he was living in the Wuhan area) and he was told he couldn't enter because he wasn't wearing a mask. The grandpa got MAD at the store clerk because he said "the corona isn't that serious" and "we aren't going to die like this". Another incident (again in China) a young doctor (in his early twenties) was diagnosed with the corona. He was a smart and kind doctor and has helped save lives. He had to stay at home during this time. When he died (he died at 9PM), the neighbours upstairs refused to let him go. They tried keeping him alive longer with the use of machines. When people found out, they demanded the couple (who were the neighbours) to let go of the dead doctor. He was finally let go and was "dead" at 3AM. People who were in hospitals before the corona (and after) (mostly young adults and the elderly) left (and died later outside of the hospital) because they will never be cured and recover, so they leave. The last incident I remember my mom telling me was that a delivery (like Korean delivery food service, it's still in use a LOT now) man (again, a young one) got a fever. However, his boss refused to let him stay at home as they needed the money. So he continued delivering food to customers at home. Not only did he die, but a lot of people who got food delivered by him got the corona.

    My heart sank watching this and I couldn't take my eyes off. After one month in isolation, you'd think you'd have gotten used to it, but as an Anglophile and frequent London visitor, this was really hard to watch. I do live in a city, but it's not comparable to London, so it wasn't that apparent. However, you guys lifted the mood anyway. :)

    We have several checkpoints here in our place. Every household here is given the so called "Resident Pass." It has specific schedules as to when we are allowed to go out from our homes to buy our essentials. Our place is small so, our grocery stores here looks so packed (but not as packed as before 😅) whenever we buy food or necessities. Yet, our establishments here follow the necessary protocols in order to ensure our safety.
    Stay safe guys! 😊 Always loved your spontaneity! You're really fun to watch! -Fan from the Philippines here-
