Before and after photos show how our cities have changed since COVID-19

These stunning views of some of the most renowned cities in the world shows how coronavirus has changed society.

Just a few weeks ago the view of Bondi Beach from above was speckled in dots or people. Now the pristine white gold sand is clear as day and not a speck can be seen. While in Melbourne the distinct lack of cars on the busy highways post COVID-19 shutdown are something we couldn't have imagined in February.

Images from Google Earth Pro give us a unique insight from space into how our lives have changed.

In our gallery above you can see the difference in places like Bondi, Melbourne, Paris, New York, Cairns, Los Angeles and London.
