Candles burn in front of a religious shrine at the home of Emiliana Ponce, during the coronavirus disease (COVID-19) outbreak, in Buena Vista, Ecuador, April 21, 2020. Ponce, who suffers from liver problems and has not seen a doctor in two months due to the high demand of medical services related to COVID-19, is cared for by her daughter Esperanza Chalen Ponce. Her granddaughter Angela Chalen, who lives by collecting crab and oyster said: "We are unprotected because the doctors have not come down for two months. They must be working in Guayaquil by now."

The Wider Image: Vibrant Cape Verdean culture draws people to Lisbon outskirt
Dulce Fernandes poses with her Catholic figures for a portrait in her room in Cova da Moura neighbourhood in Lisbon, Portugal, December 13, 2018. "I always have a smile on my face even though I'm sick," Dulce said. She has problems in her knees, which makes it hard for her to walk. Dulce came to Portugal in 2000. "I moved to Portugal to seek a better life, there were no jobs in Cape Verde. I have four children, without a father. I'm a strong woman," she said. Like many other residents in Cova da Moura, Dulce collects Catholic saints. Cape Verde is a predominantly Catholic country. In her tiny house she also has plants she uses for medical purposes, something prevalent in the neighbourhood, just like in Cape Verde. Dulce said she was evicted from her previous home in another similar neighbourhood in Lisbon, which is being destroyed to make space for a new urban development.

The Wider Image: Caring for California's aging prisoners
California prison inmate Richard Arriola does not remember the digestion problems that drove him to the doctor on a recent morning, or details of the conviction for child molestation that sent him to prison at age 88. Arriola is one of about 18,400 inmates over the age of 55 in California prisons, according to the California Department of Corrections and Rehabilitation. It is a swelling population that has led authorities to take the first steps toward creating a dementia unit at the state's main prison medical facility in the San Joaquin Valley city of Stockton, Reuters has learned. The wing would mark a shift from California's earlier efforts to treat prisoners with cognitive decline, relying on inmate volunteers and a modest staff to help them rather than a more expensive medical unit. Reuters visited two California prisons recently to look at the challenges states face, as improved medical care, long sentences from tougher crime laws, and a steady increase of older adults entering prison has contributed to an extraordinary rise of elderly inmates. In California, seven percent of the state's 130,000 prisoners were over the age of 60 in 2016, the most recent year for which data is available, compared to just 1 percent 20 years earlier, according to a report by the California Department of Corrections and Rehabilitation. Throughout the United States, states are grappling with similar challenges as prisoners age. REUTERS/Lucy Nicholson SEARCH "NICHOLSON AGING" FOR THIS STORY. SEARCH "WIDER IMAGE" FOR ALL STORIES.
