Parisians and others are adapting to a new way of life as a country-wide lockdown against the coronavirus outbreak entered its second week on March 30. Normally crowded tourist landmarks are eerily deserted while police and joggers have taken over the mostly empty streets.All non-essential commercial activities have been banned until at least April 15 and the government has urged people to stay indoors or risk being fined. This series of pictures taken in late March shows what daily life in the French capital has become.
