Coronavirus has definitely changed things in downtown Detroit.
This was the scene at 5 p.m. at the intersection of Jefferson and Woodward avenues Thursday, March 26, 2020.

Detroit News photographer David Guralnick, who recently became a licensed drone operator, was able to get these shots over downtown, which capture just how desolate things have become since the quarantine.
On the other hand, this is a good thing because it means people are clearly heeding the order to remain at home and indoors.
