【看CP學英文】日本第一間英文報社日本時報週二報導,上週台灣捐贈的200萬片口罩已經抵達日本。新型冠狀病毒肆虐日本之際,來自台灣的口罩將分送至日本各大公立醫院、特殊學校。

Japan Times, Japan’s largest and oldest English-language daily newspaper, reported on Tuesday that some 2 million face masks donated last week by Taiwan have arrived in Japan.

The masks will be delivered to public hospitals and special schools across Japan amid reports of the worsening of the COVID-19 pandemic.

日本政府發言人菅義偉向日媒表示,「我們希望能再次誠摯地感謝台灣溫暖的支持、幫忙。」

“We’d like to again express our sincere gratitude for the warm cheers and support from Taiwan,” Chief Cabinet Secretary Yoshihide Suga told Japanese media.

菅義偉補充道,「我們會持續加強與相關國家、地區的合作,一同對抗威脅全人類健康的新冠肺炎。」

“We will continue boosting our cooperation with related countries and regions against the new coronavirus, which is a threat to all humankind,” the top government spokesman added.

大批口罩於上午運抵東京成田機場,台灣、日本代表一同參與卸貨典禮。

Representatives from both Japan and Taiwan reportedly attended a ceremony on the tarmac at Narita airport near Tokyo as they watched the masks being carried out of an aircraft.

日本時報寫道,「台灣國內口罩曾一度缺貨,政府要求私營部門增加口罩產量,很快地一週口罩產能達到每日1500萬片,滿足國內口罩需求。」

The Japan Times noted that “Taiwan at one point lacked masks but has since achieved production of 15 million masks daily, and succeeded in meeting domestic demand after its government asked the private sector to increase mask production.”
