The Covid-19 pandemic continues to shut down cities around the world, bringing the global economy to a crawl. Governments are taking unprecedented measures to combat the pandemic, putting in place stay-at-home orders for more much of the world's population in an effort to flatten the curve of infection.

In New York City, the number of confirmed infections doubled in three days. India just issued a 21-day lockdown for its population of more than 1.3 billion.
