Webtoon artist and TV personality Kim Poong showed how deserted the streets of Busan are in light of the Coronavirus outbreak.

Given the sudden surge of cases in South Korea, many are avoiding public areas leading to the usually bustling streets of the city to be eerily empty. Kim Poong's recent Instagram update cheered on citizens while showing the deserted streets of Busan. 

The caption reads: "I came to Busan for work. This is the situation inside Starbucks. Stay strong business owners!" 


Many are worried about how the outbreak will affect the local economy in Korea as many small independent businesses will be deprived of income.

Wow.
That's...……… really sad. Especially for all the small business owners who I'm sure are debating with themselves whether or not to go out of business. Because you can't pay your building rent and employee wages if there aren't any customers.

That’s a scary thought and sight. It’s a difficult situation. You have to avoid public groups for your health and safety, but at the same time small business owners will suffer. At the very least if you go out, try to go to a small business for your errands.

I was about to go visit my girlfriend in korea but she told me not to come and to wait. I don’t remember what street she was going past but she sent a picture and it was bare. Stay strong and healthy everyone.
