On any other Friday, Irvine Mall would be full of busy shoppers eager to get their weekend started.

But since the coronavirus has taken over the country and lockdown measures have been put in place, the mall looks almost sinister. 

Irvine Times:

Although some shops still remain open to the public, there was barely a single person to be seen touring the Mall. 

Asda on the other hand, had a queue of people waiting outside, going to pick up their essential shopping.

The Scottish Government are currenlty advising, for the protection of yourself and others, stay at home and only go outside for essential food, health and work reasons, stay two metres (six feet) away from other people, wash your hands regularly, and wash your hands as soon as you get home.
