中國超諷刺回擊美國 點出川普「這句」超矛盾 | China responds to U.S. accusations with viral video

【看CP學英文】中國官媒新華社製作動畫短片「從前有個病毒」,以樂高人偶對話指控美國面對疫情時虛偽反覆的說詞。

A Chinese state media on Tuesday released a short animation video, titled “Once Upon a Virus,” featuring Lego-like figures, that lashes out at the U.S. response to the COVID-19 pandemic.

數週前,美國總統川普將矛頭指向中國,指控新冠病毒是人為的且源自武漢的一間實驗室。近期,中國即發布這則動畫短片回擊美國,以樂高版小兵與自由女神之間的對話呈現美對疫情的反應。

Following weeks of U.S. President Donald Trump’s claims that the novel coronavirus was man-made and originated from a lab in Wuhan, Xinhua News Agency, the official state-run press agency of the People’s Republic of China, released the short video featuring English dialogues between a soldier wearing a face mask and the Statue of Liberty.

影片中,小兵早在一月發出聲明證實病毒的存在,並持續通報染疫死亡人數以及病毒的高感染率,然而,自由女神不但駁斥小兵,還聲稱這只是「流感」。

In the video, the soldier issued various statements confirming the virus in January and continuously reported on the death toll and high infection rates, but was rebuffed by the Statue of Liberty, who claimed it was merely a flu.

影片中引用許多川普過去在記者會曾發表關於疫情處理的言論,不久,自由女神開始生病,臉漸漸轉紅,吊上點滴,貌似有發燒症狀。

Using excerpts of Donald Trump’s various responses in past press conferences, the Statue of Liberty gradually became sick and is shown to be linked to an IV with a red face, indicating a fever.

據報導,美國指控中國隱瞞病毒的嚴重性,質疑世界衛生組織與中國共謀,希望能調查世界衛生組織。

The United States has repeatedly accused China of covering up the severity of the virus and expressed wishes to launch a probe into the World Health Organization’s (WHO)  alleged mishandling of the crisis.

截至目前,美國是全球疫情最嚴重的國家,總確診人數逾119萬例,死人人數達6.9萬人。

As of press time, the U.S. is one of the most affected areas in the world with 1,197,086 confirmed COVID-19 cases and 69,442 deaths.
