'The world exploded': Beirut blast takes a husband, father - San Francisco Chronicle

BEIRUT (AP) — Soha Saade had not seen her husband since Christmas. The coronavirus pandemic had kept 44-year-old Jihad in Nigeria, where he worked far from his family in Beirut. Once travel restrictions eased, he flew home with a new sense of urgency: His 6-year old had been diagnosed with Hodgkin lymphoma. Together, Jihad and Soha spent 13 days with their daughter, Gemma, as she received treatment. “We only had one more day left in the hospital,” Soha said. When smoke billowed outside the hospital window Tuesday, the couple lamented Beirut's pollution and disorder. Soha began to film it on her phone, then went out to check with nurses if there was reason to worry. As she opened the door, “the world exploded." In an instant, she had to make a wrenching decision — focus on her daughter, who suddenly was watching blood gush from her stunned father's head, or leave the girl with others and try to save the life of the man she loved. Soha carried her burly husband down nine floors, walking barefoot on broken glass. The hospital was no longer functioning. She had to find another. Strangers appeared and helped her down the stairs. Her brother arrived to help. Soha reached a doctor friend on the phone who talked her through basic first aid. “Jihado, answer me, don’t go,” she pleaded with her husband. But it was too late. Other hospitals, overwhelmed, turned the couple away. Soha's husband died in her arms. He never said a word. “He didn’t even open his eyes. I saw his soul (leaving his body),” Soha said. She only removed the broken glass from her feet three days later. She doesn't know how to ever remove the pain. Tuesday's blast killed nearly 150 people. Search teams are still looking for bodies as some families don’t know whether to mourn. “You...

Minneapolis Hairdresser Shuttered by Coronavirus Lockdown Reopens - Voice of America

Three months ago Kemi Lawani, who owns a small hair salon in south Minneapolis, spent many nights crying, worried about how to pay the bills and feed her kids in the midst of the coronavirus shutdown that closed her business and thousands of others across the state for more than two months last spring.  “You don’t know what is going to happen. The anxiety is very high,” she said at the time.  Just as she was getting ready to reopen, the Minneapolis neighborhood where her business is located was hit by protests and rioting after the death of George Floyd in police custody in late May.

Coronavirus: The impact on Nigeria's airlines - Yahoo News

Travelling between two points in Nigeria can be time-consuming, so many people prefer air travel. It takes an hour to fly between Lagos, the commercial district, to Abuja, the federal capital, while the same journey would take over 10 hours by road. The reopening of airports and the reinstatement of flights has come as a big relief for many, but flight cancellations have had a big economic impact on the industry. According to Captain Musa Nuhu, director general of the Nigerian Civil Aviation Authority (NCAA), the pandemic has cost the airline industry almost $1bn (£766m), while the loss to Nigeria's economy is $800bn.
