There’s a lack of tourists on the streets and beaches in Waikiki due to the coronavirus pandemic as only essential activities are allowed. It’s easy to practice social distancing as there are not that many people walking around. There was hardly any one around the sidewalks along Kalakaua Avenue as only this homeless man can be seen walking past the closed stores. PHOTO BY DENNIS ODA. MARCH 26, 2020.
