🔴Monday April 12th 2021 🔵2021年4月12日星期一 🔱Espresso - Today’s agenda 每日濃縮 - 今日頭條 🕵️🕵️🕵️Stepping out: England’s lockdown 審慎地漸入佳境:英格蘭的封鎖措施 Today England takes another step out of lockdown. Shops, hairdressers and gyms will open for the first time since the start of the year. The country is recording fewer than 2,500 cases of covid-19 a day, down from a peak of nearly 55,000 in January. The sharp fall reflects both a tight lockdown and rapid vaccination campaign, thanks to which nearly half the population of England has received a first dose. The government is also employing new measures to keep cases down. Vaccine passports are being tried out at events including the final of the FA Cup, a football tournament. More rigorous contact tracing is being used to suppress worrying variants. And the government is offering twice-weekly testing to the entire population free of charge. Boris Johnson, Britain’s prime minister, acknowledges that the country’s emergence from lockdown is cautious. His hope is that this prudence will also make it irreversible. 在今天,英格蘭從封鎖 (的限制措施中) 又向外邁出了一步。自今年初以來,商家、理髮廳以及健身房將首次開放。如今,英格蘭單日的新冠病毒確診病例自 (今年) 一月份的近 55,000例高峰,已降至目前 (單日) 少於 2,500例。急劇下降的數字同時反映了嚴密的封鎖措施以及迅速的疫苗施打計畫 (之成功),多虧於此,近一半的英格蘭人口已接種了第一劑疫苗。(英格蘭) 政府目前亦採取了新的措施來壓低確診病例之發生,像是包括英格蘭足總杯決賽的足球比賽等活動中都在進行疫苗護照制度的試驗。更嚴密的疫調正用於防堵令人擔憂的變種病毒 (之擴散),而政府每週也提供全體國民兩次免費的篩檢。英國首相強森 (Boris Johnson) 坦承,英國將從封鎖措施中謹慎復甦。強森希望如此審慎的行事不會再有下一次。 ⚜️Daily takeaway⚜️ 每日單字精選 ✅Reflect (v.): 反映 (動) ✅Rapid (adj.): 迅速的 (形) ✅Tournament (n.): 比賽、競賽 (名) ✅Rigorous (adj.): 嚴格的 (形) ✅Worrying (adj.): 令人擔憂的 (形) ✅Free of charge (adj.): 免費的 (形) ✅Acknowledge (v.): 承認、認知 (動) ✅Cautious (adj.): 謹慎的、小心的 (形) ✅Irreversible (adj.): 不可逆的 (形) — ✔︎ 按讚【每日一經濟學人】Facebook 粉專: ✔︎ 追蹤【每日一經濟學人】Instagram 帳號: ✔︎ 訂閱【每日一經濟學人】YouTube 頻道: ✔︎ 閱讀【每日一經濟學人】Medium 平台: — 🔶如有商業合作或業務需求,請洽 🔴如影音內容有誤,歡迎來信勘誤
