As you can see, the chosen close-ups for Anna Holligan's report are (with one rather indistinct exception) all of women, children, and families with children, though we also see a women with a man in a wheelchair and an elderly man too - i.e. those viewers will regard (rightly) as the most vulnerable.
The close-ups of young men are few are far between.
