The body of Valnir Mendes da Silva lays on the sidewalk of the Arara favela in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, May 17, 2020. When Silva complained that he could not breathe, locals said they called an ambulance for him, but he died before it arrived. His body lay on the sidewalk for 30 hours, according to relatives and neighbors. Although they may never be sure, they suspect the 62-year-old was an uncounted victim of the coronavirus outbreak tearing through Rio\u0027s marginalized communities and stretching public services past their limits.

Ugandan academic Stella Nyanzi reacts as police officers detain her in Kampala, Uganda May 18, 2020. Police arrested the prominent academic, a vocal critic of President Yoweri Museveni, for allegedly inciting violence as she protested against coronavirus lockdown measures. The East African nation, with 284 cases and no deaths, has implemented one of Africa\u0027s strictest lockdowns, closing businesses and schools, banning public gatherings and the use of private and public vehicles other than those of essential workers such as medical staff. Author, university lecture and rights activist Nyanzi has in recent years earned a huge following on social media for her bold attacks on Museveni over his crackdown on political dissent and decades-long rule.

People stand in a queue to receive food aid at the Itireleng informal settlement, near Laudium suburb in Pretoria, South Africa, May 20, 2020. South Africa has marshaled huge resources towards preventing its poor from starving because of COVID-19, but undocumented citizens and stranded migrants face hunger as they slip through the net, aid workers say. Some 11,000 families waited for charity food parcels in a queue stretching for several kilometers outside Pretoria, with some lining up from 4 a.m. Aid workers estimated more than half of those waiting for the third distribution this month were migrants.
