The Wider Image: Schools close and student pregnancies rise in lockdown Kenya
Jackline Bosibori wept when she found out she was pregnant. The 17-year-old's mother, who is raising six kids alone, collapsed in their one-room home. They had been repeatedly threatened with eviction and couldn't afford another mouth to feed. "If I was in school, this could have not happened," said Bosibori, who wants to become a lawyer. With schools closed due to the coronavirus pandemic and her mother out selling vegetables on the roadside, Bosibori got involved with a man in his twenties. When she told him she was pregnant, he stopped answering her calls. Global lockdowns could lead to rising rates of adolescent pregnancy, non-governmental organisations working on reproductive health have warned. In Kenya, some preliminary data suggests that is happening. REUTERS/Monicah Mwangi TPX IMAGES OF THE DAY SEARCH "KENYA LOCKDOWN PREGNANCIES" FOR THIS STORY. SEARCH "WIDER IMAGE" FOR ALL STORIES.

Gino Verani is put on a stretcher as he is taken to hospital, after coming down with a fever, as his family stand around him, at his home in San Fiorano, Italy, August 23, 2020. Toniolo, Verani's grandson, said that while Verani was alone in bed on the ground floor, his condition got worse every day. He could not get up, and was almost always lying in bed. The confusion and agitation of the first period, due to immobility, gave way to a state of continuous numbness. When Verani came down with a fever, which Toniolo said was probably due to the air conditioning, they called health professionals to carry out checks and, as always, to exclude the risk that he had contracted COVID-19.

Cancer patient Rebecca Zammit Lupi celebrates her 15th birthday with her friends Luisa Zammit and Elea Broger, following almost five months of lockdown during the coronavirus disease (COVID-19) outbreak whilst she received treatment for cancer in the Sir Anthony Mamo Oncology Centre in Mater Dei Hospital, at home in Kappara, Malta, August 3, 2020. "My 15th birthday was obviously quite a different experience for me since I couldn?t see many friends or interact with them as I normally would and also had to spend most of the day in an N95 mask. However, I got to see some of my best friends whom I hadn?t seen in months which felt great! For my birthday, I asked for donations to Puttinu Cares Foundation. I chose this charity because their mission means a lot to me, and I was thrilled that so many people contributed as a way of celebrating with me. Puttinu Cares has helped me throughout my whole experience and will continue to do so especially if I have to go to Oxford for an operation in the future, as well as helping other cancer patients," said Rebecca.

Using the light from an LED night lamp, nurse Will Grima takes blood samples from Rebecca Zammit Lupi, a 14-year-old cancer patient, in her room at Rainbow Ward in Sir Anthony Mamo Oncology Centre at Mater Dei Hospital, during the coronavirus disease (COVID-19) outbreak, in Tal-Qroqq, Malta, June 13, 2020. "When I first met Rebecca, she was reserved and shy, as is usually the case with most teenagers who have recently been diagnosed with cancer. After a few weeks of acting like a clown and having unloaded multiple syringes of water on her and her parents, she began to open up and the real Rebecca started to shine through. She would start to smile, laugh, and joke around. She would even show me some of her art projects and show me videos of her dance acts. When she started to enjoy playing Minecraft on the PS4 in the ward, I'd often join in when I was on break. It was always a welcome respite from the administration of treatment or ward procedures. This all helped to build rapport between us. Unfortunately, those times weren't meant to last. When COVID-19 arrived in Malta and the number of active cases were on the rise, we began to fear for the safety of our patients. This was a novel virus, with no available vaccine, and we had no idea what the effects would be on immunocompromised patients such as Rebecca. New infection prevention measures were implemented. We had to don protective gear and maintain minimal contact with patients and other staff. Patients weren't allowed out of their rooms to reduce exposure, and only one parent could stay with their child. A major part of our way of nursing was stripped from us and it was a blow to everyone's spirits; patient, parent and staff," said Grima.

When they told us we couldn't even leave the room, or not even have the door open at first, my mum freaked out and I was sad but dealt with it somehow. One thing that was really different was the nurses. Before, I was able to go to the adolescent room, which they had just opened, and play Minecraft on the PlayStation with nurse Will Grima.

Rebecca's pleas for online education for ill children to continue post COVID-19 caught the attention of the national media and the authorities. "Once online school became real, I actually found studying fun! I hadn't studied in months because I never felt up to just reading the notes my friends had given me. I feel that joining some of the lessons, after being out of school for so long, made my teachers, friends and myself very happy!" said Rebecca.

She would ask us many questions about our role as radiographers and what she would need to study to enter the course at university. The fact that we were able to inspire Becs even during such difficult times, made us really proud of our profession." REUTERS/Darrin Zammit Lupi SEARCH "REBECCA LUPI" FOR THIS STORY.

Nurse Naomi Balzan explains the protocol for the next chemotherapy cycle to Rebecca Zammit Lupi, a 14-year-old cancer patient, in her room at Rainbow Ward in Sir Anthony Mamo Oncology Centre at Mater Dei Hospital, during the coronavirus disease (COVID-19) outbreak, in Tal-Qroqq, Malta, May 2, 2020. Rebecca underwent 14 chemotherapy cycles to treat the cancer cells in her shoulder, neck, hip and liver. Balzan says "Rainbow Ward is more like a second family to me, rather than a workplace. It can be challenging at times because you witness suffering of both patients and their parents every day, but it is highly satisfying as well. The children and adolescents' smiles inspire you and make you forget all the suffering they are passing through. When parents are given the devastating news that their child has cancer, from that day their lives may change forever. Then treatment such as chemo protocol is discussed with the consultant and doctors. However due to shock and overload of information, the nurse clarifies the treatment with the patients before administering in order to feel more secure! Explaining to children and adolescents may be challenging at times because one must adapt according to different age groups and personalities. Teenagers like Rebecca can understand a complex explanation of both the diagnosis and treatment. Eventually the patients will learn treatment names by heart before their parents do!"

Strangely, I can't clearly picture the face of the surgeon who changed my family's life. I'm not sure I'd recognize him if I bumped into him in the street. And yet I can vividly recall his face turning pale the instant he looked at the X-rays of my 14-year-old daughter's shoulder. Her chronic pain had first been diagnosed as a likely inflammation, and then possibly some problem in the muscle that could be fixed with a few physiotherapy sessions. But on that day, October 31, 2019, we found out that it was Ewing's Sarcoma, a rare and extremely aggressive form of bone cancer. The cancer had started deep in the sponge bone of her humerus and then broke out through the bone surface, causing excruciating pain, then metastasizing to several other parts of her body. Rebecca, or Becs, as we call her, was suddenly fighting for her life. REUTERS/Darrin Zammit Lupi SEARCH "REBECCA LUPI" FOR THIS STORY.
