Bazaar swabbed, tables spaced as Turkey eases restrictions

Municipal workers disinfect the iconic Grand Bazaar in Istanbul to prevent the spread of the COVID-19, caused by the novel coronavirus on May 20, 2020. One of the largest and oldest covered markets in the world and visited by 150,000 people daily, the Grand Bazaar was blanketed by a quirky dead silence compared to its past noise when traders shouted in every foreign language in order to lure tourists into their stores. / AFP / Ozan KOSE
