Photos by @ciriljazbec | With the outbreak of the coronavirus in Slovenia, I have struggled with how to capture this story. Neighboring northern Italy, the current epicenter of the pandemic, is only two to three hours away from Ljubljana, our capital.

I was shocked by the empty streets and the unsettling atmosphere, unlike anything I've experienced. This is Tara Istinič, a first-year student at the University of Ljubljana. She worries about her studies, as she believes she learns most efficiently by attending lectures. She has also lost her student job in a sportswear shop. Follow @ciriljazbec to see more stories.
