Alisha Narvaez, 36, the manager at International Funeral & Cremation Services, a funeral home in Harlem, stands in front of a row of deceased people stored inside cardboard boxes that are assigned to be cremated, as she takes a phone call, during the coronavirus disease (COVID-19) outbreak, in Manhattan, New York City, New York, U.S., April 9, 2020. At the beginning of the pandemic, Narvaez sent her 17-year-old daughter to live with her twin sister, but after two weeks the distance was too much. "It's always just been me and her and she wanted to come home," said Narvaez. "I gotta make sure I keep healthy just not to harm her," she added. "Although she's been in quarantine for several weeks, every day I come home from work is Day Zero for her." REUTERS/Andrew Kelly SEARCH "CORONAVIRUS FUNERAL HOMES SLUM" FOR THIS STORY.

The Wider Image: High noon in a coronavirus-stricken world
Lockdowns to halt the spread of the coronavirus have brought an uncanny silence to some of the world's busiest places. Transport hubs that should be teeming with travelers such as New York's Grand Central station or Istanbul's Eminonu ferry docks are all but deserted. Our best-loved tourist sites or promenades, the Malecon seafront in the Cuban capital Havana, the Damascus Gate entrance to Jerusalem and the Old Town Square in the Czech capital Prague are empty of visitors and the traders that live from them, as borders close and tourists stay home. Cairo's Tahrir Square and Kiev's Maidan, squares where just a few years ago people swarmed in their masses to bring about a revolution, are clear. Reuters photographers have captured the hush that has descended on some of the world's best-known sites on the same day, at noon. REUTERS SEARCH "COVID-19 NOON" FOR THIS STORY.

Rondon, from Maracaibo, one of the hottest areas of Venezuela, said: "There is no life there, you wake up, and you do not have electricity. My son can't go to classes because there is no electricity, and the school doesn't have the right conditions; they don't have water in the bathrooms or for them to drink". "I decided to start teaching him at home in March." With tears running down her face, she said, "One of the toughest things (in Venezuela), was not being able to sleep. As a parent, you are so tired from all you do during the day. To take care of the children, wash their clothes, find food, and have to deal with a power cut at night knowing that it will last at least 12 hours. That's ugly. But it wasn't only one a day. It has been like that in March, April, May, and June until I left, almost every day it was the same." "I want my children to have an education like the one I had." "Most of the people there (in Venezuela) don't even dream of going to university. Mainly because you can't afford it and secondly, the quality is not the same as before." "I want my children to dream in big; I would like them to want to be doctors, engineers, or architects." "I would like to go back to Venezuela, but I would like to see it as I remember it."

Under the mentorship of the drag queens, Keegan's drag life has blossomed. "I think that we're trying to sort of redefine success and also telling this eight-year-old that if you are yourself and you continue to be yourself and you grow up and you do good and that that's successful and I think that he's getting that mentality from us. But also from a personal perspective, I know that I am getting a sense of community as well, a feeling we're providing something that is going to positively affect this young kid," said Alex. "As gay people, we kind of have the ability to choose our family and I think what I am getting out of this, is family." Robby said: "At the end of the day, that's really what all of this is about, right? (It) is just creating positive change for a kid who maybe didn't know that there was an option to do so."

The Wider Image: Hunger stalks Yemen's remote villages after four years of war
As Yemen's war grinds into its fifth year with peace efforts stalling, ten-year-old Afaf's father sees little hope he will be able to give his starving daughter the food or healthcare she needs. Across Yemen's remote mountain villages, the country's war-induced economic crisis has left parents destitute, hungry and watching their children waste away from malnutrition and unclean water. "Before the war we managed to get food because prices were acceptable and there was work," 40-year-old Abdu said from al-Jaraib, a small agricultural village in the hills of Hajjah province in northwest Yemen. "Now they have increased significantly and we rely on yoghurt and bread for nutrition." Four years of conflict have pushed Yemen, which was already one of the poorest Arab states, to the brink of famine. War has cut transport routes for aid, fuel and food, reduced imports and caused severe inflation. Households have lost their incomes because public sector wages are not being paid and conflict has forced people from their homes and jobs. The United Nations says about 80 percent of the population needs some form of humanitarian assistance and two-thirds of all districts in the country are in a "pre-famine" state. Afaf, who now weighs around 11 kg and is described by her doctor as "skin and bones", has been left acutely malnourished by a limited diet during her growing years and suffering from hepatitis, likely caused by infected water. She left school two years ago because she got too weak. REUTERS/Khaled Abdullah SEARCH "YEMEN HUNGER" FOR THIS STORY. SEARCH "WIDER IMAGE" FOR ALL STORIES. TPX IMAGES OF THE DAY.

Every morning before dawn, Diabate hitches his donkey to a cart and sets off on his rounds, going door-to-door to collect household garbage which he delivers to a local waste transfer station for a monthly salary of around $35. "I won't be picking up trash with a donkey cart for the rest of my life, but for now people appreciate us because we help clean up the homes of Bamako," Diabate said.

Mohammed Yosuf: "I go to the beach for fishing otherwise I don't do anything... There is only fishing here. If we catch lots of fish and the owner (of the boat) sells them at the market, the owner takes half of the money and the other half is distributed to the Rohingya fishermen," Yosuf said and added: "Sometimes I don't get paid and sometimes it's 200 or 300 Taka or I get paid with fish. The owner of the boat is Bangladeshi." Sobora Khatun: "We were combined by shackles for two months without having any food or water. They also did not let us drink water from the fountain. By the grace of almighty we got rain from the sky and we drank the rainwater, nothing else for two months. When they started burning the whole village we got a chance to flee. Lots of children were burned in this attack. We escaped to Bangladesh," Khatun said. "After shackling us, our homes and village were totally burned by the Myanmar people and Myanmar army. I was nine months pregnant when I escaped from Myanmar and I gave birth in Bangladesh to Rukia. My three-year-old son was killed in the crossing. He was drowned in the river."

The Wider Image: Displaced family returns home to Mosul
For Mohammed Saleh Ahmad and his family, returning to Mosul after more than a year away was bittersweet. He was happy to return to a semblance of his old life, but leaving behind the friends he'd made in the refugee camp where he'd lived for a year weighed on him. Ever since Mohammed fled Mosul in March 2017, this community of friends and relatives - a group of like-minded survivors of the battle for Mosul - had made life bearable. "It's so hard saying goodbye," Mohammed said, as he finished boxing up his belongings in his tent in the Hammam al-Alil refugee camp south of Mosul. Mohammed arrived when U.S.-led coalition forces began their advance on western Mosul, the final stretch to route Islamic State. The militants had overrun Mosul in 2014 and placed people like Mohammed under their draconian rule. Carrying whatever he could, he fled his home in the city, along with his wife and five children. His parents and siblings were not far behind. REUTERS/Khalid Al-Mousily SEARCH "MOSUL RETURN" FOR THIS STORY. SEARCH "WIDER IMAGE" FOR ALL STORIES. TPX IMAGES OF THE DAY.

The Wider Image: Sinking shoreline threatens millions in Indonesia
Experts say scores of villages and towns along Indonesia's shoreline are being inundated because of a grim combination of man-made environmental destruction and climate change. Roughly 40 percent of Jakarta is below sea level and a new sea wall has had to be built in a bid to hold back the waves. Indonesia, an archipelago of thousands of islands, has about 81,000 km (50,331 miles) of coastline, making it particularly vulnerable to climate change. It is also home to more than a fifth of the world's mangrove forests, which naturally help keep the tides out. But only 3 million hectares of mangroves remain, down from nearly double that three decades ago, according to Wetlands International. For years, coastal communities have chopped down the mangrove forests to clear the way for fish and shrimp farms, and for rice paddies. In some places, hundreds of metres of coast that used to be lined with mangroves have now been swallowed up by the sea. The government has scrambled to work with environmental groups to replant mangroves, build dykes and relocate some people. But many residents, mostly poor fishermen and vendors, are either reluctant to leave their old family homes or simply have nowhere to go further inland on crowded Java.

The Wider Image: Displaced Yemeni family sift through garbage for food
After persistent Saudi-led air strikes on their home area in northwest Yemen, the Ruzaiq family packed their belongings and fled to the relative safety of Hodeidah port on the Red Sea. But with no money or relatives to shelter them, the 18-member family joined a growing number of displaced Yemenis living on or next to the garbage dump of the Houthi-controlled city. Despite the health risks, the dump has become a source of food for hundreds of impoverished Yemenis and given some young men a chance to try to earn some income. "We eat and drink the food that is thrown away," said 11-year-old Ayoub Mohammed Ruzaiq. "We collect fish, meat, potatoes, onions and flour to make our own food." The United Nations estimates that more than two million people have been displaced by the war, which intensified in 2015 when an Arab coalition intervened to try to restore President Abd-Rabbu Mansour Hadi to power after the Houthis forced him into exile. The war has killed more than 10,000 people, crippled the economy, caused a cholera epidemic that has killed nearly 2,000 people and pushed the country to the verge of famine.

Pictures of the Year: A picture and its story
Displaced Iraqi women who just fled their home, rest in the desert as they wait to be transported while Iraqi forces battle with Islamic State militants in western Mosul, Iraq, February 27, 2017. Zohra Bensemra: "I took this picture in a desert on the outskirts of Western Mosul of 90-year-old Khatla Ali Abdallah after she fled the battle for Mosul. Her fearful eyes red with fatigue, Khatla was so exhausted she could not stand or even sit properly. She looked to me like she had not eaten or drank water for a long time. The moment was so emotional that I had tears in my eyes when I photographed Khatla. I felt bad because I could not do anything for her apart from taking pictures to show the world the agony and torment of people trying to flee Mosul to safety. I was sad too, imagining this woman as my own grandmother and feeling helpless to make her comfortable. When you face such a moment, you always think that it could happen to anyone of us. But despite all, Khatla looked beautiful to me, almost as if every wrinkle on her face told a story. I was fortunate to find her a few days later in a refugee camp after showing people my photograph of her. She has survived decades of turbulence in northern Iraq. She told me "the fighting there is the worst I have ever seen". She had been carried across the desert by her grandsons, under sniper and mortar fire, one of thousands who braved the difficult and dangerous journey out of Islamic State's shrinking stronghold in western Mosul. Khatla made me smile when she expressed her remorse about her 20 chickens she had to leave behind. She had looked after them even while hiding from crossfire in her house's basement. Despite all the terror she experienced under IS rule, it had not destroyed her humanity - she said, 'Even animals deserve life.'" REUTERS/Zohra Bensemra/File Photo SEARCH "POY STORY" FOR THIS STORY.

A Picture and its Story: Recovering from severe malnutrition in Yemen
Smiling and sitting down to bread and milk with her family, Yemeni teenager Saida Ahmed Baghili is barely recognisable a year on from the photo of her emaciated frame that came to symbolise the country's humanitarian crisis. Baghili now weighs 36kg (80 lb), according to her father, more than triple the 11kg she weighed last October when Reuters first met her at the al-Thawra hospital in Sana'a, where she was undergoing treatment for severe malnutrition. There the 19-year-old was unable to talk, let alone carry her ghostly, skeletal frame, which is now stronger after weeks of specialist care and time at home. "Saida's body got better because she's eating better, but she's still having trouble swallowing," her father Ahmed Baghili said at their home in Hodeidah this month. "She can only eat milk, biscuits and juice." Baghili's plight reflects that of many families in the Arabian Peninsula's poorest country, where a two-and-a-half-year war between a Saudi-led Arab coalition and the Iran-allied Houthi movement has claimed 10,000 lives. A quarter of the 28 million population are starving, according to the United Nations, with half a million children under the age of 5 severely malnourished and at least 2,135 people killed by cholera.
