Eerie drone footage has captured a bird’s-eye view of the empty streets of San Francisco amid the COVID-19 lockdown.

Filmmaker Dan Denegre is a San Francisco resident who has captured images of his city in almost complete lockdown on March 22.

Dan has filmed the deserted streets of the neighbourhoods of North Beach, SOMA, Mission and Pacific Heights, with the shut-down restaurant and bar and the occasional solitary person strolling by.

Dan said: “This is the emptiest I have ever seen the city.

“It’s sad seeing the businesses boarded up, but encouraging to know everyone is doing their part.

“I hope we can get through this sooner rather than later.”
