A Picture and its Story: Gaza girl survives Israeli strike that shattered her family and home
Six-year-old Suzy Eshkuntana woke up alone in Gaza's largest hospital where she was rushed by rescuers from the rubble of her home, which had been wrecked by a pre-dawn Israeli strike that killed her mother and all four of her siblings. The young girl, trapped for seven hours under the debris, was reunited in Shifa hospital with her father, who was also being treated for his wounds. "Forgive me, my daughter. You screamed to me to come to you, but I couldn't come," Riyad Eshkuntana told her after medics brought them together in adjoining beds. The Palestinian family's home was hit in Israeli air strikes early on Sunday on Gaza City, a wave of attacks that Gaza health officials said killed 42 people including 10 children and raised the death toll in Gaza from a week of bombardment to 192.

Rohan Aggarwal, 26, a resident doctor treating patients suffering from the coronavirus disease (COVID-19), looks at a patient's x-ray scan during his 27-hour shift at Holy Family Hospital in New Delhi, India, May 1, 2021. "If a patient has a fever, and I know he's sick but he's not requiring oxygen, I can't admit him," said Aggarwal. "That's the criteria. People are dying on the streets without oxygen. So people who don't require oxygen, even if they are sick, we don't admit them usually," he added. "Another choice is I have an old male and I have a young guy. Both are requiring high-flow oxygen; I have only one bed in the ICU. And I can't be emotional at that time, that he is a father to someone. The young have to be saved."

Grima said, "Working with teens, children and babies, you get to see them overcome tribulations and watch as they grow from them. Sadly, sometimes the challenge is too great. In those times, we try to make whatever time they have as meaningful as possible. I can remember the excitement on Rebecca's face when she would show me one of the games she had been playing with Darrin: Sky. She'd explain the mechanics of the game to me, show me some outfits she'd received for her character and so on. You could see from the way her face lit up that she was enjoying it, so when I had some free time I'd try to steal a few minutes and watch Rebecca play. She'd either be showing her father the ropes as they played together, or blasting through levels with pinpoint accuracy from all the practice. Memories like these are bittersweet; I can't help but feel sad about what Rebecca and her parents had to endure, yet it's moments like those that make our line of work meaningful."

The Wider Image: Don't call us grannies: Meet Japan's senior cheer squad
Fumie Takino, 89, founder of a senior cheer squad called Japan Pom Pom, and other Japan Pom Pom members, perform a dance routine while filming an online performance in Tokyo, Japan, April 12, 2021. Picture taken April 12, 2021. Japan, one of the world's most rapidly ageing nations, with almost 30% of its population older than 65, is known for the longevity of its seniors. But acceptance of the squad took time in a nation with fixed notions about senior life. "We went to a senior-citizens club, and they really didn't like us. They didn't smile even once. 'Japanese women, wearing things like that, at their ages!'" Takino recalls. "Now, I think about half of people are okay with us and half still can't accept us."

The photograph was taken through blue plastic to visualise the effects of long COVID. As some doctors shrugged off her symptoms, Arias resorted to leaning on her support network. "They don't judge me, and they have helped me learn to live with this the best possible way I can," she said. Arias got a friend to design a tattoo for her to remind herself of the importance of her network of family, friends and colleagues.

Long COVID sufferer Pedro Sanchez-Vicente, a 56-year-old event organiser, poses for a photograph taken through blue plastic, in Madrid, Spain, March 17, 2021. The photograph was taken through blue plastic to visualise the effects of long COVID. Sanchez-Vicente spent 100 days intubated in an ICU unit after getting infected with COVID in March, 2020. But after his release from the hospital he started developing many of the symptoms associated with long COVID. "I'm not your typical long COVID case, because most of those patients haven't been hospitalised or not for too long, unlike me. But I share with them the mental mist, the paresthesia, the hearing problems, conjunctivitis, eye herpes. You could say I'm a hybrid," he said. When Sanchez-Vicente got transferred to a regular ward at the hospital, he spent most of his time in the armchair in his room, he was so weak he could barely stand up and laying down in bed for long periods of time was difficult. "When I returned home I saw the armchair my family had bought for me as a surprise. I have pretty much been living in that armchair for the past year. Even now I find myself sleeping in it for hours every night because I have difficulty breathing in bed." REUTERS/Susana Vera SEARCH "SPAIN LONGCOVID" FOR THIS STORY.

The photograph was taken through blue plastic to visualise the effects of long COVID. Matarranz gets emotional when she explains how much she misses her students. Matarranz got infected on March 1, 2020. At first, she only noticed the loss of smell and taste, but soon afterwards she started suffering from severe stomach problems and acute joint pain. "My right collar bone is swollen, I can barely lift my arm, I feel like I have aged prematurely," she said. Matarranz returned to work in September, but got infected a second time in November and hasn't been able to continue teaching ever since.

The Wider Image: The faces in the fog of 'long COVID'
A combination picture shows long COVID sufferer Beatriz Perez, a 51-year-old computer engineer, posing for a photograph taken through blue plastic, and the staircase leading to Perez's flat photographed through blue plastic, in Fuenlabrada, Spain, March 4, 2021. The photographs were taken through blue plastic to visualise the effects of long COVID. Perez used to go trekking on weekends, but now is rarely able to complete her personal challenge of walking all the way down the stairs from her eighth-floor apartment, not to mention up. "One day I tried to at least go down the stairs and I don't even think I made it two floors down, I was in so much pain. I felt so disappointed. Am I ever going to be able to live a normal life again?" she said. Permanent fatigue, muscle and joint pain and forgetfulness have kept her off work for a year, and she says "the worst thing is living with the uncertainty" of not knowing when or if she will recover. Perez leads a daily mindfulness online class with other people who suffer from long COVID. "If it were not for meditation I might have already been put on antidepressants."

The Wider Image: The faces in the fog of 'long COVID'
A combination picture shows long COVID sufferer Susana Matarranz, a 44-year-old primary school teacher, posing for a photograph taken through blue plastic, and a blank blackboard photographed through blue plastic at Matarranz's home, in Madrid, Spain, March 8, 2021. The photographs were taken through blue plastic to visualise the effects of long COVID. Matarranz gets emotional when she explains how much she misses her students. Matarranz got infected on March 1, 2020. At first, she only noticed the loss of smell and taste, but soon afterwards she started suffering from severe stomach problems and acute joint pain. "My right collar bone is swollen, I can barely lift my arm, I feel like I have aged prematurely," she said. Matarranz returned to work in September, but got infected a second time in November and hasn't been able to continue teaching ever since. "The part of me that is my profession is empty, like that blackboard. A piece of my heart, which are my students, whom I love dearly, feels empty and I feel like at this moment there's nothing I can do to fill it in."

Flavio Falcone, a psychiatrist, and Andrea Macera, who works as an actress and a clown, talk to a young man known as Nego Bala, 23, (center) who was born and raised in an area known as "cracolandia," or crackland, a dangerous wasteland of about eight blocks in the historic center of Sao Paulo, Brazil, February 9, 2021. "When I was born, crackland already existed. People need to stop blaming who is in crackland. When everyone was born, the evil already existed," Bala said. "Instead of stigmatizing crackland, why don't you invest in humanizing and helping these people?" REUTERS/Amanda Perobelli SEARCH "CRACKLAND PEROBELLI" FOR THIS STORY.
