The empty streets of Auckland during lockdown

In an effort to contain the spread of Covid-19, New Zealand is officially in lockdown. With people instructed to stay at home, Auckland’s streets, schools and parks are near empty. Watch as our camera travels through Queen Street, Dominion Road, Onehunga Mall, the Western Motorway and Waterview Tunnel.
