“An open wound and an opening hope for new things” the Italian tricolour ✊🏼 newest Vanity Fair Italia
Murals are popping up all over the world to honor tireless health care workers, bring hope to those passing by, and to just vent. I loved seeing these. It was cool seeing how everywhere around the world we’re all dealing with the same thing, and it reminded me that this is the first time ever that the entire world has been focused on one thing.
In New Orleans, a graffiti artist called “Bandit” has painted murals in the city — one of nurses and one of children playing with toilet paper rolls.
In Chicago, artists have also created outdoor art to capture the times and they’ve also started Quarantine Times, a website created to highlight the work of local artists during the pandemic.
This is happening all over the world. Literally every city is out painting their city to remind us that we’re all in this together, that this sucks, and to be safe.
In the UK,
In Los Angeles,
In Warsaw, Poland,
In Pontefract, U.K.
In Glasgow, Scotland
This is indeed a unique time in history
This is just so surreal. All important safety measures of course….but still so surreal pic.twitter.com/BlHCa04mOX

This synchronicity of the decline in restaurant bookings around the world—or, at least, among OECD nations with OpenTable—is remarkable.
Different distancing policies. Different outbreak rates. Different cultures. Different laws. And they all fell to zero in 15 days. pic.twitter.com/zPyIWAGv1y
