美国或将迎疫情“至暗时刻”,疫苗计划停滞不前

推荐人: 来源: 时间: 2020-10-29 阅读: 2.53W 次

美国疫情仍在恶化。美卫生专家称接下来数月美国的疫情将是“最灰暗的时期”,确诊病例仍在剧增。

Michael Osterholm, director of the Center of Infectious Disease Research and Policy at the University of Minnesota said at a press: “The next months will be the “darkest of the pandemic”. “Between now and the holidays, the US will see numbers “much, much larger than even the 67 to 75,000 cases.”
据报道,美国明尼苏达大学传染病研究与政策中心主任麦克·奥斯特霍尔姆在一场记者会上表示:“接下来数月美国将迎来‘疫情的至暗时刻’”。他表示:“往后美国的单日新增确诊病例将会远远高于6.7-7.5万例。”

美国约翰斯·霍普金斯新冠疫情统计数据显示,截至北京时间10月22日凌晨5点,美国新冠肺炎累计确诊病例超831万,累计死亡病例超22万。

据美国有线电视新闻网络(cnn)当地时间19日报道,全美27个州确诊病例数仍在激增。而各州的“疫苗计划”仍然因为缺乏资金而搁置不前。

美国或将迎疫情“至暗时刻”,疫苗计划停滞不前

States still have no idea how they're going to pay for coronavirus vaccine distribution, despite filing plans last week, state officials said Monday.
州政府官员19日表示,各州目前仍然不知要如何为他们的疫苗接种计划埋单,即便上周就已提交了计划。

Friday was the deadline for states to submit their plans to the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, but they still don't have the needed federal money to help carry them out, officials said.
官员们表示,各州向美疾控中心递交疫苗计划已于16日结束,但目前,联邦政府的拨款仍未落实到位。


文章写道,疫苗计划所需资金的数量非常巨大,对于范围广、周期长的疫苗计划来说,目前的资金只是杯水车薪。

“As it stands now, we do not have any capability to fund the imminent implementation of the plan.”The CDC distributed $200 million to states for preparedness and planning, which "certainly would not be sufficient at all for a campaign of this magnitude and duration."James Blumenstock, senior vice president for pandemic response and recovery at the Association of State and Territorial Health Officials.
19日,美国国家和领土卫生办事处协会负责疾病应急和康复的高级副主席詹姆斯·布卢门斯托克称“目前对于资金支持一事,我们也无计可施。”美疾控中心已拨款2亿美金用于疫苗计划的前期准备以及实施,但“考虑到范围之广,周期之长,这些钱也只是杯水车薪。”

然而,资金问题也只是一方面,美国传染病专家安东尼·福奇就表示,现在,公众的疑虑是个大问题。

The funding for vaccines isn't the only problem. Health officials are also having to deal with a very skeptical public. Dr. Anthony Fauci, the director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, said Monday it may be a challenge to get people to take the vaccine.
资金支持并不是疫苗计划实施唯一的问题。卫生官员需要面对公众的疑虑。安东尼·福奇博士19日表示,说服美国民众去接种疫苗也会将非常具有挑战性。

"It would be a terrible shame if we have -- and I think we will have -- a safe and effective vaccine but we're not able to widely distribute it to those who need it," Fauci said in a virtual event for the National Academy of Medicine on Monday.
福奇19日在美国国家医学院的线上会议上表示,“如果我们有安全有效的疫苗,我想我们会有的,但却无法让所有需要的人广泛接种,那简直是奇耻大辱。”


美国疫情防治仍然面临重重困难。美国卫生专家预计,随着秋季的到来,新冠肺炎新增确诊病例将会开始激增。

同时,资金仍未落实到位,疫苗计划搁置不前,全民接种疫苗仍然是挑战。
