【看英文中國郵報學英文】連鎖速食龍頭麥當勞新加坡據點爆出有7名員工確診2019新型冠狀病毒(COVID-19),隨後,麥當勞宣布自星期日起,所有新加坡分店暫停營業兩週。

Fast food giant McDonald’s says it will suspend all operations in Singapore for two weeks from Sunday after seven of its employees tested positive for the coronavirus.

麥當勞於臉書粉絲團上公布將配合衛生部建議,暫停所有新加坡據點營運直到5月4日國內解除封鎖。公告寫道,暫停營運期間,麥當勞會繼續支付全國135間分店共1萬名員工薪水。

McDonald’s said in a Facebook post it decided to follow the health ministry’s advise to shutdown until May 4 when Singapore’s partial lockdown ends as part of a preventative action in the battle against the COVID-19 outbreak.

It said it would continue to pay the salary of 10,000 employees working in more than 135 outlets across the city-state during this period.

麥當勞未給予近一步消息。此連鎖店平均一個月內服務將近6百萬名顧客,而各家分店已在上週爆出七名員工確診。

The fast-food chain, which serves six million customers every month, didn’t give further details. Seven of its employees working in several outlets have been diagnosed with the virus in the past week.

新加坡於週六宣佈新增942例新冠肺炎確診案例,創下東南亞最多單日新增確診數,而新加坡目前已累計5,992個確診案例。如今,政府已開始硬性規定民眾出門需戴口罩,也強制執行安全社交距離,確保民眾安全。

The city-state Saturday reported a record daily jump of 942 new infections, the highest one-day spike seen in Southeast Asia, to bring its total to 5,992.

The government has made it mandatory for people to wear masks outside their homes and imposed strict social distancing measures.
