弹劾案后再算账?特朗普革职美国情报机构督察长


佐治亚州众议员杰西·佩特里亚表示,已经与州自然资源部取得了联系,“目前允许个人或者家庭团体在海滩上锻炼,但不允许聚集。此外,巡逻队将在海滩上巡视,以保证人与人之间严格保持社交距离。”4月4日,香港博爱医院公布了一宗源头不明的新冠肺炎确诊病例,该病例为93岁男性患者,目前情况严重。

重新开放海滩的命令目的在于鼓励个人和家庭加强锻炼,以减少隔离和保持社交距离的政策所带来的不适,但也有地方政府表示反对。泰比岛市市长雪莉·塞申斯在一份声明中称,目前并不准备开放海滩,“我们还没有做好准备,因为我们没有足够的资源保证海滩上人与人之间的距离是六英尺(约1.8米)。”

新闻公报称,这名93岁男病人的鼻咽样本对新冠肺炎呈阳性反应,样本已转交香港卫生防护中心做进一步化验。该病例在新冠肺炎潜伏期内大部分时间均留院,因此博爱医院正与卫生防护中心及传染病专家共同跟进,并追查感染源头。

另据香港“东网”报道称,这名93岁病例为香港第856宗病例,曾与第455宗病例入住同一病房不同病格。第455宗病例因高血压等病于3月17日至18日入住博爱医院,当时未确诊新冠肺炎。4月3日,美国驻华大使在使馆官网、官方微博、微信公众号上发布中英文公开信《向前同行》,感谢中国帮助。全文如下:

向前同行。我知道我们必将度过难关。

布兰斯塔德大使Moving Forward TogetherLast week, President Trump and President Xi had a very good, productive phone conversation regarding the global COVID-19 pandemic.  And, over the weekend, I spoke with Vice Foreign Minister Zheng Zeguang about our countries’ joint efforts to combat COVID-19.  I underscored that now is the time to look forward, and relayed my appreciation for Chinese efforts to assist our government in the export of needed medical supplies to the United States.The U.S. Embassy has already been hard at work bringing U.S. and Chinese companies together to meet the growing immediate needs for critical personal protective equipment in the United States.  And we are working closely with Chinese government officials to facilitate the shipment of those supplies out of China.  No one country can fight this battle alone, and I am confident that our two countries will continue to find ways to jointly cooperate to combat this common enemy that threatens the lives of all of us.As the entire U.S. Mission to China continues our support and concern for our Chinese colleagues who work for Embassy Beijing and our five Consulates, we now look homeward with concern for the health and safety of our own families, friends, and loved ones back in the United States.  The work we are all doing is crucial, and I encourage everyone to continue your valiant efforts to fight this pandemic.Moving forward together, I know that we will get through these difficult times.Ambassador Branstad

美国大使馆已经辛勤工作,为美国和中国公司牵线,以满足美国对关键个人防护用品不断增加的即刻需求。我们正与中国政府官员紧密合作,加快来自中国的货物运输。没有一个国家可以独自打这场战役。我有信心,我们两国将继续找出共同合作的方法,抗击这个威胁所有人生命的共同敌人。美国驻华使团全体继续支持并关心在北京使馆及五个领馆工作的中国同事,我们现在也牵挂着在美国的家人、朋友和我们所爱的人的健康安全。我们正在做的工作至关重要,我鼓励各位继续坚定抗疫。

据美国福克斯新闻报道,该命令于当地时间4月2日签署,4月3日生效。值得注意的是,其中一项主要规定提到,“暂停自2020年3月1日以来通过或发布的任何地方法令或命令”,特别是与新型冠状病毒肺炎相关的任何命令。此前,许多州内的城镇制定了关闭海滩的规定,以遏制疫情。

根据卫生防护中心指引,上述病例曾经入住的病房已经暂停接收新病患并会进行彻?清洁,院方正跟进有关病人潜伏期内曾接触的员工及邻近病人,进行医学监察及检疫安排。
