April 24–April 30, 2020

This photo gallery highlights some of the most compelling images made or published by Associated Press photographers in the North America region.

This week’s selection includes healthcare workers reacting to the applause at Brooklyn’s Kings County Hospital Center during the coronavirus pandemic in New York; a provisional election judge reviewing paperwork at a voting center as voters arrive to cast their ballot in the 7th Congressional District special election in Baltimore; a pedestrian waiting for a Chicago Transit Authority bus as several COVID-19 public service messages are projected on screens; and a PSE&G utility worker watching the Navy’s Blue Angels and the Air Force’s Thunderbirds conduct “a collaborative salute” to honor those battling the viral outbreak with a flyover of New York and New Jersey.

The gallery was curated by photo editor Courtney Dittmar in New York.
