A New York City Police Department officer stands by as workers secure a van full of bodies of deceased people at the Andrew T. Cleckley Funeral Home in Brooklyn, New York City, April 29, 2020. The city of New York delivered a freezer truck to the funeral home after it was found to be storing dead bodies in unrefrigerated U-Haul vehicles, a Reuters eyewitness said. It was not clear how long the bodies had been stored in the U-Hauls or whether any were COVID-19 victims. The bodies were found after neighbors reported an odor coming from the trucks, New York media reported. REUTERS/Lucas Jackson

Ugandan refugees Suzan Nakajiri and Eva Nabagala (R), both members of the LGBT community, hold hands inside their shelter at the Kakuma refugee camp, in Turkana county, northwest of Nairobi, Kenya. Nabagala hoped she and her young son would be safe from her family when they fled Uganda for a Kenyan refugee camp - but instead, the 28-year-old says she was attacked and raped there as punishment for being a lesbian. "I have been threatened with death, I have been beaten, I have been harassed sexually, and I have been sexually abused, raped," Nabagala told Reuters by phone. She's one of a group of around 300 LGBT refugees in the camp who say other refugees repeatedly attack them because of their sexual orientation. The group say police and the United Nations refugee agency, UNHCR, have failed to protect them. Picture taken February 22, 2020. REUTERS/Goran Tomasevic

A Venezuelan migrant woman breastfeeds her baby inside a bus that migrants hired to reach the Colombian-Venezuelan border, in Bogota, Colombia April 29, 2020. A large crowd of Venezuelan migrants held up traffic on a Bogota highway, demanding to be allowed to leave Colombia and return to Venezuela, as Colombia's coronavirus lockdown has crippled their ability to earn to living. Some 500 migrants and a dozen buses were stranded near the toll booths that mark the northern border of Bogota, the Colombian capital, as migration authorities limited transport amid passage restrictions at the border. There has been a mass movement of thousands of Venezuelans back to their economically devastated country since Colombia imposed a nationwide lockdown last month. REUTERS/Luisa Gonzalez

Migrant workers from Mexico wear masks and practice social distancing during a mandatory 14-day quarantine after arriving at Mayfair Farms in Portage la Prairie, Manitoba, Canada April 28, 2020. Mandatory coronavirus quarantines of seasonal foreign workers in Canada could hurt the country's fruit and vegetable output this year. Foreign labor is critical to farm production in Canada, where domestic workers shun the hard physical labor and low pay. Farms rely on 60,000 temporary foreign workers, whose arrivals are delayed by initial border restrictions and grounded flights. Once they arrive, the federal government requires them to be isolated for 14 days with pay, unable to work. REUTERS/Shannon VanRaes
