银河国际网址手机版-纽约州封城18天恍如隔世,美财长称经济有望下月解封……

“Alexa, Help me.”

这是美国密歇根州一位老人在确诊新冠肺炎之后留在手机里的一条录音,她在向自己的语音助手求助。

据美联社的报道,66岁的卢安·达根生前居住的疗养院中有36人确诊感染。从感染后到离世的前几日里,她向语音助手求助了至少40次,这些录音后来被她的亲人发现。

LouAnn Dagen, a 66-year-old nursing home resident in western Michigan, repeatedly asked her Amazon Echo for help with pain in the days before her death on Saturday from COVID-19 complications.

Dagen was one of 36 residents who tested positive for the virus at the Metron of Cedar Springs nursing home. It wasn’t until after her sister’s death that Penny Dagen realized the Amazon device had recorded 40 pleas for help over her last three or four days of life.

这是个令人心碎的故事,也是大洋彼岸疫情蔓延这个大背景下的众多故事之一。

美国约翰斯·霍普金斯大学统计的数据显示,截至4月10日17时52分,美国的新冠肺炎确诊病例已达466,299例,死亡人数达16,686人,而其中纽约州无疑是“重灾区”。

根据约翰斯·霍普金斯大学统计,仅纽约州一州的确诊病例就超过了16万例,这个数字已超过西班牙整个国家的确诊病例总数。

在当地时间9日的一场发布会上,美国纽约州州长科莫说,过去24小时,纽约州新增死亡病例799例,为有疫情以来最大增幅,累计死亡7067例。

为了面对严峻的疫情,纽约州长科莫3月20日曾签署命令,从22日晚间起,除基本服务外的所有工作人员都必须待在家中。纽约州进入“封城状态”。

对于封城后的这18天,科莫感慨“感觉像过了一辈子那么久”。

发布会上,科莫还讨论了几种关于纽约的数据模型,表示任何一种情况对纽约州都是“灾难性的”。

“It’s been 18 days since we closed down New York, I know it feels like a lifetime,”said New York Governor Andrew Cuomo during a news conference on the state’s response to the coronavirus pandemic on Thursday. 

The governor shared projections from several models for the number of people hospitalized in New York, adding that any of the projected scenarios were “devastating.”

但疫情的另一边,是亟待提振的经济。

美国劳工部周四公布的数据显示,受疫情影响,上周首次申领失业救济人数达到660万6千人,远高于市场普遍预期的500万人。

美国消费者新闻与商业频道(CNBC)称,过去3周美国累计初请失业金人数超过1600万。如果将这一数字与上一份月度就业报告中的1.51亿人进行比较,意味着美国在3周时间内丧失了10%的劳动力

According to data released by the U.S. Labor Department on Thursday, the number of initial epidemic-related jobless claims last week reached 660,600, far exceeding the market’s general expectations.

The number of initial claims has exceeded 16 million in the past three weeks, CNBC reported. Comparing those claims with the 151 million people in the last monthly employment report means the United States might have lost 10% of its workforce in three weeks.

此前,美联储宣布通过2.3万亿美元的救市措施,旨在帮助地方政府及中小型企业应对新型肺炎疫情对经济造成的打击。

在这样的状况下,美国财政部长史蒂芬-姆努钦在周四表示,他认为美国经济下个月可能重新开放,“只要总统对医疗问题感到满意”

姆努钦表示,总统特朗普可能在5月重启美国经济,恢复商务活动,包括公司重开,工人恢复上班。美国财政部将提供必要的协助。

The U.S. Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin said Thursday that he believes it is possible that the U.S. can open back up next month, “as soon as the president feels comfortable with the medical issues.”

The Treasury secretary said that the administration was doing “everything necessary that American companies and American workers can be open for business and that they have the liquidity that they need to operate their business in the interim.”

美国总统特朗普在上月就曾表示希望美国能够在复活节之前解除封锁,但随后美国政府发布的防疫指南呼吁民众至少在四月底之前保持社交隔离。
