Arutz Sheva spoke to photographer Shahar Azran, who recently flew to Israel from New York amid coronavirus restrictions.

He described the procedure of the flight, how he maintains social distancing now that he is in Israel, and the atmosphere in New York amid the outbreak of the virus.

"The city is empty," he said. "I can't imagine people going back to the theater in the next 6 months [...] We have no idea what's going to happen. I think New York will be affected more than any other place in the US."

He also predicted that the coronavirus will lead to greater amounts of people moving to Israel.

He said that, between the way Israel is perceived as dealing with the crisis and the health insurance issues in the US, "I think more people will think about Aliyah, and it's a great opportunity for Israel to invest in those great people."

"Many people want to move to Israel, now we have to give them a greater inventive to come."
