美国专家建议:在中国周边美舰实施“群体免疫”


布兰斯塔德大使Moving Forward TogetherLast week, President Trump and President Xi had a very good, productive phone conversation regarding the global COVID-19 pandemic.  And, over the weekend, I spoke with Vice Foreign Minister Zheng Zeguang about our countries’ joint efforts to combat COVID-19.  I underscored that now is the time to look forward, and relayed my appreciation for Chinese efforts to assist our government in the export of needed medical supplies to the United States.The U.S. Embassy has already been hard at work bringing U.S. and Chinese companies together to meet the growing immediate needs for critical personal protective equipment in the United States.  And we are working closely with Chinese government officials to facilitate the shipment of those supplies out of China.  No one country can fight this battle alone, and I am confident that our two countries will continue to find ways to jointly cooperate to combat this common enemy that threatens the lives of all of us.As the entire U.S. Mission to China continues our support and concern for our Chinese colleagues who work for Embassy Beijing and our five Consulates, we now look homeward with concern for the health and safety of our own families, friends, and loved ones back in the United States.  The work we are all doing is crucial, and I encourage everyone to continue your valiant efforts to fight this pandemic.Moving forward together, I know that we will get through these difficult times.Ambassador Branstad

佐治亚州众议员杰西·佩特里亚表示,已经与州自然资源部取得了联系,“目前允许个人或者家庭团体在海滩上锻炼,但不允许聚集。此外,巡逻队将在海滩上巡视,以保证人与人之间严格保持社交距离。”据西班牙卫生部官网通报,过去24小时,该国新增7026例新冠肺炎确诊病例,累计确诊124736例。新增死亡809例,累计死亡11744例。

美国大使馆已经辛勤工作,为美国和中国公司牵线,以满足美国对关键个人防护用品不断增加的即刻需求。我们正与中国政府官员紧密合作,加快来自中国的货物运输。没有一个国家可以独自打这场战役。我有信心,我们两国将继续找出共同合作的方法,抗击这个威胁所有人生命的共同敌人。美国驻华使团全体继续支持并关心在北京使馆及五个领馆工作的中国同事,我们现在也牵挂着在美国的家人、朋友和我们所爱的人的健康安全。我们正在做的工作至关重要,我鼓励各位继续坚定抗疫。

据英国独立报报道,特朗普政府周四命令明尼苏达州的医疗装备制造商3M公司停止向加拿大和拉丁美洲出口防护口罩。对此,加拿大总理特鲁多警告称,可能对特朗普这一决定采取报复性措施。4月3日,美国驻华大使在使馆官网、官方微博、微信公众号上发布中英文公开信《向前同行》,感谢中国帮助。全文如下:

我强调了现在就是向前看的时候,并对中国就出口需要的医疗用品到美国,对我国政府给予帮助,传达了我的感谢。

重新开放海滩的命令目的在于鼓励个人和家庭加强锻炼,以减少隔离和保持社交距离的政策所带来的不适,但也有地方政府表示反对。泰比岛市市长雪莉·塞申斯在一份声明中称,目前并不准备开放海滩,“我们还没有做好准备,因为我们没有足够的资源保证海滩上人与人之间的距离是六英尺(约1.8米)。”

【海外网4月5日|战疫全时区】美国佐治亚州于当地时间4月2日宣布将重新开放之前被地方政府关闭的海滩,希望能够鼓励个人与家庭团体参加锻炼,减少隔离和保持社交距离带来的不适。
