In this Wednesday, May 20, 2020, frame grab from video, a fisherman anchors his boat before Cyclone Amphan made landfall, at Baguranjalpai village in East Midnapore district in West Bengal state, India. People forgot about social distancing and crammed themselves into government shelters, minutes before Cyclone Amphan crashed in West Bengal. The cyclone killed dozens of people and the coronavirus nine in this region, one of India’s poorer states. Even before the cyclone, its pandemic response was lagging; the state has one of the highest fatality rates from COVID-19 in India. With an economy crippled by India’s eight-week lockdown, and health care systems sapped by the virus, authorities must tackle both COVID-19 and the cyclone’s aftermath.(Debasis Shyamal via AP)
