During the shutdown, Florence is empty

Due to the COVID.19 outbreak, Italy is under shutdown, everyone is forced at home.

I had to go to downtown for work, and I was shocked to see the Duomo area, a tourist spot that is usually swarming with people, totally empty:

Someone far away just got some prescription from the Pharmacy, one of the few stores allowed to be open
Go straight for the train station, nobody in sight.
The Cascine park is also deserted. (And now police completely sealed up the area)
