每日英語跟讀 Ep.K042: About Asia - Not wasted: Sewage in Nepal serves as affordable virus warning tool A pungent smell hangs in the early morning air as researchers collect samples of sewage dumped into a river in Nepal - a cost-effective way to trace the coronavirus spread for the resource-strapped Himalayan nation. 研究人員在尼泊爾一條河流採取排放到河中的污水樣本,空氣中飄著一股強烈的臭味—對於這個資源拮据的喜馬拉雅山國家來說,這是追蹤冠狀病毒散播情況的一種划算方式。 "When you are limited in the resources that are available for testing and screening, this is a quick and easy way - and a cheaper way - of finding hotspots," said Dibesh Karmacharya, who co-founded Center for Molecular Dynamics Nepal, the NGO leading the research. 「當你篩檢所需資源有限,這是找出熱點的便捷方法,而且比較便宜」,率領這項研究的非政府組織「尼泊爾分子動態中心」共同創辦人卡瑪查亞說。 With some cases asymptomatic, the community-wide nature of the testing, rather than at an individual level, could help pick up the disease in places where it may not appear to be present. 由於有些感染病例是無症狀,這種檢測方式涵蓋全社區,而非針對個人,有助於在疫情或許尚未浮現的地方得知病毒蹤跡。   Next Article Thailand serves up cannabis cuisine to happy customers 泰國供應大麻美食給開心的顧客 “Giggling bread” and “joyfully dancing salad” aren’t the usual dishes on a menu in Thailand, but one eatery is hoping its cannabis-infused cuisine can lure foreign tourists and take the taboo out of the recently legalised leaf. 「咯咯笑麵包」和「樂舞沙拉」不是泰國菜單上的尋常菜色,但一家小餐館希望它加了大麻的美食能引誘外國遊客,並擺脫這種近來合法化的大麻葉的禁忌。 The restaurant at the Chao Phya Abhaibhubejhr Hospital in Prachin Buri started serving its own happy meals this month, after Thailand de-listed cannabis as a narcotic, allowing state-authorised firms to cultivate the plant. 在泰國將大麻自毒品除名並准許政府授權的企業種植這種植物後,這家設在巴真武里府昭披耶河阿拜布別澤醫院的餐廳,本月開始供應它的快樂餐。 “Cannabis leaves, when put in the food or even a small amount ... it will help the patient to recover faster from the illness,” said Pakakrong Kwankao, the project leader at the hospital. 該醫院這項計畫的主持人帕卡克隆.寬考說,「當把大麻葉放進食物,或是甚至只有少量…它會幫助病人從疾病中較快恢復。」 “The cannabis leaf can improve appetite and make people sleep well, and also be in a good mood."
