In this Wednesday, May 20, 2020 photo, members of the Aryubi family mourn over the graves of Dr. Yousuf Aryubi, in photo, and two of his siblings who lost their lives to COVID-19, in Kabul, Afghanistan. Dr. Aryubi's family assumed they just had a bad cold, as one after another, they came down with fevers and coughs -- all because one of the Afghan capital's main hospitals never told them the results of his coronavirus test. Their tragedy points to how a broken-down health system, slow government response and public attitudes have left Afghanistan deeply vulnerable to the global pandemic. (AP Photo/Rahmat Gul)
