Ramai ‘Meremang’, Jurufoto Kongsi Gambar Jenazah Covid-19

Kes positif COVID-19 di Indonesia kini meningkat kepada 81,668 kes, iaitu tambahan kes baharu sebanyak 1,574 dalam tempoh 24 jam.

Menurut Jurucakap Pemerintah Indonesia berkenaan COVID-19, Achmad Yurianto, bagi tempoh 12 tengah hari semalam sehingga 12 tengah hari ini, sebanyak 76 lagi kematian berlaku, menjadikan jumlah keseluruhan kematian kini 3,873 orang.

Baru-baru ini, seorang jurufoto telah berjaya merakam jenazah seorang mangsa Covid-19 di Indonesia, jika dilihat memang agak seram melihat sekujur badan terkujur dibungkus plastik di atas katil hospital.

Foto paling menyayat hati

Menerusi perkongsian jurufoto tersebut yang dikenali sebagai Joshua Irwandi, di dalam entrinya memaklumkan mengenai betapa bahaya virus tersebut dan pengorbanan para petugas barisan hadapan.

Mengambil gambar mangsa koronavirus di Indonesia ialah fotografi yang paling menyayat hati dan menakutkan saya pernah buat. Dalam fikiran saya ketika itu, saya hanya fikir apa yang jadi kepada orang ini mungkin terjadi kepada mereka yang saya sayang.

To photograph the victims of coronavirus in Indonesia is the most heartbreaking, most eerie photography I have ever done. In my mind at the time I only thought what happened to this person may well happen to people I love, people we all love. I’ve witnessed first hand how the doctors and nurses are continuously risking their lives to save ours. They are the true heroes of this story, and the only way to appreciate their work is to follow what they advise us. We felt it was absolutely crucial that this image must be made. To understand and connect to the human impact of this devastating virus. The image is published here today as a reminder and a warning, of the ever looming danger. To inform us of the human cost of coronavirus and how world governments have let matters get so far. As we head towards the second wave of the pandemic, people must realise they cannot take this matter lightly. This photograph accompanies an article that appears in the National Geographic Magazine @natgeo in the new upcoming August 2020 issue. LINK IN BIO. It is also the first time I’d see the image in print. There are many people to thank, most notably @kayaleeberne, in which this is the first print NG story she edited; @jamesbwellford for reacting on the story from early on; @andritambunan, @kkobre, and @paullowephotography for their advice; and last but not least my mentor @geertvankesterenphoto for his unrelenting support since day one. I would like to dedicate this to the medical staff – whose selfless efforts allow us to continue to live. I am truly humbled to be in their midst countering this pandemic. And to my late Uncle Felix who, two years before he passed away earlier this year, sent me an email: ‘Keep on taking pictures and never fail to report to let the world know what has really happened.’ Please share this story and please act. This is the pandemic of our lifetime. We must win this battle.

“Saya telah saksikan bagaimana para doktor dan jururawat berterusan merisikokan nyawa mereka untuk menyelamatkan nyawa kita…”

“Mereka merupakan hero sebenar dalam kisah ini dan satu-satunya cara untuk menghargai kerja mereka ialah dengan mengikut nasihat mereka….”

Foto ini memang kelihatan agak menyeramkan, namun ia adalah peringatan untuk agar jangan mengambil ringan gejala penularan Covid-19, selagi tiada vaksin selagi itu kita semua masih berada dalam bahaya.
