【看CP學英文】新型冠狀病毒肺炎(COVID-19)肆虐美國,最新確診死亡人數來到近23萬,正在當地採訪總統大選的美女主播黃倩萍,今(29日)在臉書分享華府草地上震撼一幕,「很多美國人說他們羨慕台灣的防疫!」

The COVID-19 pandemic has brought the death toll in the U.S to an alarming 230,000 in just a few months. 

Against this backdrop, Taiwanese foreign correspondent Huang Chien-ping, decided to share on her Facebook page a disturbing image taken in front of the White House on Thursday, stressing that “many Americans are envious of Taiwan’s virus-prevention efforts.”

稍早,黃倩萍貼出數張在華盛頓哥倫比亞特區拍下的照片,只見華府草地上插滿16萬面小白旗,一名婦人跪地準備將手中2面旗子插上,「每面代表著一個因為確診死亡的生命,也代表著一個心碎的家庭。」黃倩萍解釋道。

According to Huang, 160,000 small white flags could be seen on the White House lawn to represent the lives lost to COVID, as well as a woman kneeling in front of the flags, clutching two of her own.

Huang explained that “every flag represents a person who lost his or her live to the deadly pandemic.”

「好像一座國家墓園一樣,讓人怵目驚心」,對於眼前景象,黃倩萍有感而發,「台灣人真的很幸福,要好好珍惜,很多美國人說他們羨慕台灣的防疫。」照片引發議論,網友表示:「悲,世界須團結抗疫」、「在台灣真的感受不到這麼嚴重」、「真的很感謝政府,跟大家一起努力防疫」!

Huang added that the cemetery-like scene disturbed her greatly, and also reflected that Taiwan is really lucky to have such good virus-prevention measures.

Social media users soon flocked to the comment section to express their sorrow at the images and gave words of encouragement to continue the battle against COVID-19.
