People gather in front of the Supreme Court following the death of Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg, in Washington, September 18, 2020. Ginsburg died on September 18 of complications from pancreatic cancer at age 87. Ginsburg\u0027s death gives Trump and his party an opportunity to establish a 6-3 conservative majority on a court whose decisions influence many spheres of American life including abortion, healthcare, gun rights, voting access, presidential powers and the death penalty.

While FaceTiming her siblings, Angelica Mendez says goodbye to her mother, Catalina Salazar, 86, who was struggling to fight COVID-19 and died later in the day at United Memorial Medical Center in Houston, Texas, September 8, 2020. Mendez, 48, was permitted to spend less than an hour with her mother before the 86-year-old woman succumbed, leaving seven children and more than 30 grandchildren to mourn her. Hospital safety rules restricted contact with the family matriarch, with her family saying final goodbyes in a video-call that Mendez made from the hospital. Compounding the close-knit family\u0027s trauma, Mendez said, her father was admitted to the hospital\u0027s intensive care unit after testing positive for coronavirus. He was expected to recover.

Hung Hsin-chieh, a research assistant who works for Dr. Cecilia Koo Botanic Conservation Center, climbs a tree as he looks for endangered plants in Jin Shui forest, Pingtung, Taiwan, September 11, 2020. A group of conservationists are racing to collect as many rare plant species as they can before they are lost to climate change and human encroachment. "I started collecting plants when I was still at school. I didn't used to think it was that important. But since I began working at the conservation center, I have realized that many (living) things that used to be there, are there no longer," said Hung. "So for many things, if you don't conserve them properly then perhaps in the future you'll no longer be able to find them." REUTERS/Ann Wang

Britta Brennan, emergency nurse, and Arvind Suguness, MD, Pulmonary, Sleep, and Critical Care, pose for a portrait in Washington. Suguness reflected on being an essential worker in the pandemic: "Many years from now, when our nation has hopefully learned many lessons from the senseless loss of hundreds of thousands of lives, medical professionals will continue to recall the many ways in which we and our patients were failed by our government. We will remember the strangeness of these times and will hope that we never have to experience them again." Picture taken April 24, 2020. REUTERS/Leah Millis
