今天我们就来说一说MERS。七筒君的学生们最近谈MERS色变,有的取消了最近去韩国旅游的行程,有的甚至自动地停止了追韩剧,看跑男…经历过北京SARS的人们更是对这个看似变种的MERS惶恐不已。那么这个MERS的传染可能性和致命率到底有多大呢,让我们看一看来自世界卫生组织专家的分析:
About MERS
MERS, known as Middle East Respiratory Syndrome, has killed 9 people in South Korea. According to experts, the disease originated in Middle East has actually shown limited human-to-human transmission. A 2014 research looked at how many people got ill after living in the same home as MERS patients in Saudi Arabia. Of 280 people who lived in the same households of the Saudi patients, 4% were infected. Compared with Ebola,the rate of transmission of MERS is low indeed.
MERS symptoms are fairly general including cold-like symptoms, cough and fever.
How about its mortality rate?
MERS globally has been known to carry about a 30-40% death rate. The death rate in the South Korean outbreak has consistently remained been under 10%.
我们看过以上两段七筒君精选缩编的材料,不难看出相比埃博拉和非典,MERS可以说是大巫见小巫了,感染死亡率要小于前两者,人人感染的概率也是相当低。
那么问题来了,为什么韩国的感染人数却一直在上升,甚至已经达到了108人呢?再让我们看看专家的分析:
"The first patient wandered around hospitals and family members were not protected. Hospitals in Korea are often crowded with sick patients waiting to get care, and family members rather than nurses often stay bedside by patients, changing them and taking care of them.This also exposes them to additional risk of infection."
可见,专家把韩国的病情蔓延归因于韩国第一个患者没有得到妥善隔离的事实以及韩国医院病人家属探视的情况。
好了,说MERS告一段落,我们看看这么一个烫手的时事怎么用在托福的作文中呢?
看一个去年的真题:
It is important for people to know about the events happening around the world, even if the events will not affect their daily life.
