>Number of newborns falls in 2020
去年登记新生儿1003.5万
The number of newborns whose names were registered with public security authorities on the Chinese mainland last year dropped by about 15 percent from the previous year to 10.03 million, according to the Ministry of Public Security.
公安部日前发布报告称,2020年出生并已经到公安机关进行户籍登记的新生儿1003.5万,与2019年相比下降15%。
Of those newborns, about 5.3 million were boys and 4.7 million were girls, the ministry said in a report.
其中男孩约530万,女孩约470万。
The total number of births last year has not been released, but the number had been falling in recent years despite the implementation of the universal second-child policy at the beginning of 2016.
2020年的出生人口总数尚未公布。尽管2016年初我国开始实施全面二孩政策,但近年来我国出生人口一直在下降。
In 2019, the total number of births on the Chinese mainland was 14.65 million, compared with 15.23 million in the previous year, according to data released by the National Bureau of Statistics in January last year.
根据国家统计局2020年1月公布的数据,2019年全年出生人口为1465万,2018年为1523万人。

>Lab leak 'extremely unlikely'
世卫:病毒泄露可能性极低
It is "extremely unlikely" that the novel coronavirus spread to humans through a laboratory leak, a team of international experts from the World Health Organization said during a news conference in Wuhan on Tuesday, adding that future studies into the origin of the virus will not be "geographically bound".
2月9日,世界卫生组织国际专家组在武汉举行的一场新闻发布会上表示,实验室病毒泄露导致新冠病毒传播的可能性"微乎其微",未来对新冠病毒溯源的研究不会局限于某个地域。
Peter Ben Embarek, a WHO expert on animal disease and food safety, heads a 17-member international team of experts convened by the WHO for origin-tracing of the novel coronavirus in Wuhan together with Chinese experts from Jan 14 to Feb 9.
世卫食品安全和人畜共患疾病项目负责人彼得•本•安巴雷克是世界卫生组织新冠病毒溯源国际专家组组长,从1月14日至2月9日,国际专家组17人与中方专家组在武汉展开实地考察。
Their work in China has shown that the most likely path for the introduction of the virus to the human population was through an intermediary species, Embarek said, adding that the possibility of two other routes examined by the team - from an animal host to humans and transmission through cold or frozen food - have not been ruled out.
安巴雷克表示,通过此次考察发现,病毒通过中间宿主引入人类是最可能的一种路径,另外两条路径,动物直接传人以及冷冻食品传播的可能性也不能排除。

>Coronavirus variant spreads in US
变异新冠病毒在美传播
The coronavirus variant that has moved through the UK is now spreading "rapidly" through the US, according to a new study published on Sunday.
根据2月7日发表的一项新研究,已经在英国传播的变异新冠病毒正在美国"迅速"传播。
The more contagious strain is nearly doubling its prevalence among confirmed cases in the US every nine days.
在美国的新冠确诊病例中,这种传染性更强的毒株的检出率每隔9天就增长近1倍。
The US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention has predicted it could be the predominant strain by March.
美国疾病控制与预防中心预测,这种变异新冠病毒或将在3月成为在美国传播的新冠病毒的主流。
This new strain is 35-45 percent more transmissible than other strains of the virus currently in the US, the report found.
报告发现,这种变异病毒的传染性比目前美国发现的其他毒株要高出35-45%。
When the CDC first warned of the new variant's presence in the US in mid-January, it was present in less than 0.5 percent of cases.
美国疾病控制与预防中心1月中旬首次警告美国出现这种变异病毒时,其病例数只占不到0.5%。
By the end of the month, this figure had jumped to 3.6 percent, according to the study.
研究发现,到1月底,感染该变异病毒的病例占比上升至3.6%。
The variant, first discovered in the UK, has so far spread to more than 50 countries.
这种变异病毒首先在英国发现,目前已传播到50多个国家。
As with the original virus, the risk is highest for the elderly and for those with significant underlying health conditions.
与早先的病毒一样,老年人和那些身体健康状况不佳的人感染风险最高。
