| With the outbreak of the coronavirus epidemic in Slovenia, I struggled with how to visualize this story. Having two small kids at home, it was scary to do. Neighboring northern Italy, the current epicenter, is only two to three hours away from Ljubljana, our capital. Slovenia is now almost in a complete lockdown. On March 19, a few hours before the newly imposed, stricter rules took place, I had taken a stroll in downtown Ljubljana. I was shocked by the empty streets and unsettling atmosphere unlike anything I've ever experienced.
Mehdi Elouissi, a second-year student at the School of Computer and Information Science, does not mind a bit of break from lectures. He continues taking part in online courses. I ran into him while he was on his way to his girlfriend, who had asked him to do some errands. Otherwise, he stays at home and does not hang out with his friends. Follow @ciriljazbec
