Photojournalist Joshua Irwandi shadowed hospital workers in Indonesia, taking a striking image of a plastic-wrapped body of a COVID-19 victim while making sure not to reveal distinguishing characteristics or even gender.

The image, which humanized the suffering from the virus, provoked thousands of positive and hostile reactions. Some of the comments to Irwandi’s image are published underneath, read by Siri and presented as a photocollage.
