We are going through a time that is both horrible and historic.
I set up this thread to capture images of these weird events.
Please do feel free to add things that seem weird to you so long as they are virus related
These are my contributions:
Cruise ships with captive crews and no place to go except into a holding pattern until further orders arrive.
BTW most of the crew members will not be paid for this time. Under maritime law this is both legal and normal. The crew has be fed, housed and have medical care provided on board the ship until they are disembarked. Since no nearby port will allow then to disembark the ship has to keep them on board, but it does not have to pay them.

As of May 5, there were over 57,000 crew members still aboard 74 cruise ships in and around US ports and the Bahamas and the Caribbean, according to the US Coast Guard. Many more hundreds were stuck on vessels elsewhere across the world's oceans.
BTW there are still a lot of flights from JFK to China despite the closed borders.
