For widows in Africa, COVID-19 stole husbands, homes, future

Roseline Ujah, 49, exits her home in Umuida, Nigeria, Friday, Feb. 11, 2022. Ujah's husband Godwin fell severely ill with a fever and cough. Everyone assumed at first that the palm wine tapper had contracted malaria, but then he failed to improve on medications for that disease. Doctors at a local hospital diagnosed him with COVID-19, though there were no tests available locally to confirm their suspicion. (AP Photo/Jerome Delay)
