The coronavirus pandemic could kill up to 200,000 Americans and millions more could be infected, the US government's leading expert has warned.

美国政府首席专家警告说,新冠肺炎疫情可能导致多达20万美国人死亡,数百万人感染。

Dr Anthony Fauci, the face of the Trump administration's coronavirus task force, made the prediction on Sunday.

美国政府新冠肺炎特别工作组首席专家安东尼·福奇博士在上周日(3月29日)做出了这一预测。

"Looking at what we're seeing now, I would say between 100,000 and 200,000 deaths," he told CNN.

“根据我们现在所看到的,我认为会有10万到20万人死亡,”他告诉美国有线电视新闻网。

But he quickly urged caution. "It's such a moving target," he said.

不过,他很快敦促人们保持谨慎。他说:“这一数字存在变数。”

Dr Fauci added that the US, which now has the most recorded cases of the virus in the world, was the "focus" of the global outbreak.

福奇博士补充说,美国目前是全球新冠肺炎确诊病例最多的国家,是全球新冠肺炎疫情的“焦点”。

"We've got a serious problem in New York, we have a serious problem in New Orleans, and we're going to be developing serious problems in other areas," he said.

他说:“纽约和新奥尔良疫情都很严重,美国其他地区的情况也可能会恶化。”

"I want to see that tests are being implemented on the ground," he added. "If we can do that... then I think we can pull back on some of the restrictions."

他补充说:“我希望看到人们得到病毒检测。如果我们能做到这一点……那么我认为我们可以取消一些限制措施。”

来看看福奇是怎么说的:

There are at least 125,433 confirmed cases across the country, with 2,201 deaths. The United States overtook both China and Italy last week for the number of reported cases.

美国确诊病例已达12万5433例,死亡病例达到2201例。上周,美国的确诊病例数量超过了中国和意大利。

But its death toll remains lower than that in other global hotspots, such as Italy, Spain and China.

但其死亡人数仍低于意大利、西班牙和中国等其他全球疫情热点国家和地区。

美国疫情最新进展

Dr Fauci's prediction came as cities across the country warned that they may soon run out of key medical supplies. Detroit, New York, and New Orleans have all sounded the alarm.

在福奇博士做出这一预测的同时,美国各地的城市都警告说,关键的医疗用品即将耗尽。底特律、纽约和新奥尔良都敲响了警钟。

"We have nurses wearing the same mask from the beginning of their shift until the end, masks that are supposed to [be used] for one patient," Michigan Governor Gretchen Whitmer told CNN.

密歇根州州长格雷琴·惠特默告诉美国有线电视新闻网:“我们的护士从开始值班到下班都戴着同一个口罩,接待其他病人时原本应该更换口罩。”

A major concern among health professionals is the number of available ventilators. Demand has surged as the virus has spread, and a number of states have warned that they will soon run out.

卫生专业人士最关心的是可用的呼吸机数量。随着新冠病毒的传播,呼吸机需求激增,许多州都警告说呼吸机即将用完。

President Donald Trump has ordered a car manufacturer in Detroit to produce more ventilators to satisfy demand.

美国总统唐纳德·特朗普已要求底特律的一家汽车制造商生产更多的呼吸机以满足需求。

Meanwhile, New York Governor Andrew Cuomo reported 7,195 new Covid-19 cases across the state on Sunday. It brought the total number of cases there to 59,513.

与此同时,纽约州州长安德鲁·科莫上周日(3月29日)报告说,当日全州新增确诊病例7195例,确诊病例总数达到59513例。

New York is at the heart of the US outbreak and is home to just under half the total cases across the country.

纽约是美国疫情的中心,占到美国全国确诊病例总数的将近一半。

On Saturday, President Trump said he was considering quarantining the state in a bid to slow the spread of the virus.

上周六(3月28日),特朗普总统表示正考虑隔离纽约州,以减缓病毒的传播。

He later commented that it was not necessary after Mr Cuomo said doing so would be "preposterous".

在纽约州州长科莫表示采取隔离措施是“荒谬之举”之后,特朗普总统评论说隔离纽约州没有必要。

preposterous[prɪˈpɒstərəs]:adj.荒谬的;可笑的

 

Mr Trump tweeted that instead of quarantine, a "strong travel advisory" would be issued to New York, New Jersey and Connecticut by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).

特朗普总统发推文说,美国疾病控制与预防中心将对纽约州、新泽西州和康涅狄格州发布“强有力的旅行警告”,而非隔离措施。
