Photos: Hard at Work, Despite the Pandemic (31 photos)

As people worldwide struggle to cope with varying coronavirus lockdowns, those who are able to continue working have mixed emotions about their jobs, their responsibilities, and their health. The news agency AFP recently asked their photojournalists around the world make portraits of workers at their jobs, and to ask them questions about their current situations. Most said they felt their work was a duty, and that they felt proud to be able to carry it out and help their communities. Some expressed worries about their health, while others felt they were taking few risks by continuing to work. Some said that they had no choice, and had to continue working to survive.
