Around the world, photographers are capturing raw tragedy – and triumph – amid the coronavirus pandemic
By Jon Jones, head of photography
Everywhere, coronavirus has hit. No place on earth is immune. But national lockdowns have made it difficult for us to see the pandemic beyond our own streets. In the UK, the movement of photographers has been restricted; the places at the heart of the coronavirus crisis – care homes, hospitals, funeral homes, morgues – have been understandably closed off. We have seen countless images of the country applauding the NHS, but little more.
In the second part of our essay on the global frontline, we continue to chart the staggering impact of the virus on communities large and small, rural and urban, rich and poor.
