Share

By October 22, the world saw 41 million confirmed cases of COVID-19, according to the WHO official website. Among them 8.65 million cases were found in the US.

Photographers around the world are exploring and telling real stories related to the pandemic through their lens.  

Duan Wei, a photo journalist from China Pictorial, stayed in Wuhan for more than two months with a group of four, capturing the moments of how doctors and nurses work on the frontline.

“I think it’s a chance for them to communicate with each other,” said Duan. “They had little time to rest.”

He was also covering the Wenchuan earthquake in 2008, but what he saw in Wuhan was even more stunning to him, as he said “you can’t see where the danger is.”

Ashraf Fawzy, an Egyptian photographer, captured the scene of a little girl sitting on a luggage, waiting to go through quarantine inspection. She is a refugee from Kuwait.

This video was produced by China Matters. It documents different stories of three photographers from China, Egypt and South Korea, who were dedicated to demonstrating people’s real life from different areas in the world through their lens.

Collective testing served as a critical approach in China for emergency response in face of the coronavirus outbreak. In mid-October, a cluster of COVID-19 infections was found in Qingdao. The local government immediately organized a collective nucleic acid testing for 10 million people within 5 days. Back in June, as the cluster of COVID-19 infections linked to Beijing’s Xinfadi Agricultural Produce Wholesale Market emerged, Beijing municipal government started to call on citizens to receive nucleic acid testing. Up to July 11, 11.88 million people have done the test, accounting for half of the permanent residents in Beijing. The number of testing institutions in Beijing rose to 194 by the end of June, with a daily testing volume of 458,000. It helped a lot to filtrate the infected cases.
