WATCH: Supermoon shines bright on silent cities

The largest ‘supermoon’ of 2020 has illuminated the skies over silent cities, including London, Paris and New York City, because of the lockdowns imposed in order to fight the spread of the coronavirus pandemic, which has already caused the deaths of thousands worldwide.

The April full moon is the closest ‘supermoon’ of 2020 and is also known as the pink moon, so-called after the pink flowers which start blooming during this month.

Under the brightness of the full moon, the state of New York has registered the highest death rate in one day from Covid-19 – a total of 731, with France registering 607 in hospitals and 820 in homes for the elderly, and the UK registering 743 deaths.
