The elderly of Barcelona’s working-class Poble Sec neighborhood, the generation who survived widespread hunger after the Spanish Civil War, started out vulnerable. ⁠ ⁠ Drawn to Spain’s industrial heartland a generation ago, they relied in retirement on free lunches from neighborhood social centers. Many received medical care from the local clinic, where doctors and nurses made house calls. Social workers brought them groceries.⁠ ⁠ But the coronavirus pandemic has heightened their fragility, stripping away the safety nets that kept them fed and healthy and exposing them to a daily threat of infection that they know could kill them.⁠ ⁠ For two weeks, Associated Press photographer @emilio_morenatti accompanied Barcelona’s visiting health care workers and emergency medical personnel as they tended to Spain’s home-bound elderly.⁠ ⁠ In this photo, Josefa Ribas, 86, who is bedridden, looks at nurse Alba Rodriguez as Ribas’ husband, Jose Marcos, 89, stands by in their home in Barcelona, Spain, March 30, 2020, during the coronavirus outbreak. Ribas suffers from dementia, and Marcos fears for them both if the virus enters their home. “If I get the virus, who will take care of my wife?”⁠ ⁠ Click the link in bio to see more.⁠ #APPhoto #coronavirus #Spain
