大俠天下行:美國新冠肺炎抗疫日記


大俠天下行:美國新冠肺炎抗疫日記

新冠肺炎疫情在休斯敦地區逐漸延燒,美南報業秉守第四權的天職,在這個關鍵時刻傾注心力為大眾傳遞疫情、政策動態。面對如今疫情發展局面,創辦人李蔚華心繫休城,於3月25日作下此語:

中文版本:

今天穿過休城華埠,大道異常平靜,往常車水馬龍之擁擠已不再,心情頓時有幾分淒涼。

市長特納已宣布 —休斯敦從今天開始進入緊急狀態,除了一些特定行業之外,希望居民留在家中不能外出。

川普總統偕同白宮防疫小組組長副總統彭斯,在記者會上重申美國政府將盡全力挽救國家重大危機,國會也通過兩千億美元之特別預算,來拯救國家經濟以防可能之衰退。


這是我今天向全體工作夥伴發出之信函:

各位同仁夥伴大家早安,今早我們決定繼續在新聞最前線堅守崗位,並且調整各位工作時間,以配合報紙出版,及電視網站之播出。市長已宣佈全體市民,除必要之購物之外必須留在家中,值此疫情加劇之時,我們絕不在此艱難時刻放棄新聞工作者之使命,無數讀者觀眾無時無刻不在企盼更多更新的訊息,我們更希望大家互相扶持和鼓勵,猶如一家人,我們一定會度過難關,迎接明天的曙光。 


再次向各位之犧牲和奉獻表達由衷之感激。

The World Has Changed

Today, as I drove down the streets of Houston’s Chinatown and the International District area, there were very few cars out bustling around and I suddenly felt a kind of deep sadness.


Mayor Turner announced on Tuesday that all Houstonians need to stay home starting at midnight, unless necessary and essential trips to markets, doctors, etc.


Today, I sent out a letter to all my colleagues and told them how important it is in this critical time to stand in the front lines to report the news so the community can understand the facts in this rapidly changing situation.


Congress has now already passed a two trillion dollars emergency fund to help all the citizens and businesses. This is a great help for all the American people, but we need to get people well and back to work.


We are urging all the people to stand united in this fight against this deadly virus.


God bless America.
