美國新冠疫情日記04/15/2020  豈可獨善其身


                    豈可獨善其身


當新冠病毒席捲世界之際,任何地區及居民無一幸免,從我們的電視鏡頭中看到,巴黎鐵塔旁已空無行人,時代廣場除了耀眼的霓紅燈,只有見到一些遊民徘徊;邁阿密海灘上的白沙也只看到在空中飛翔的海鷗,世界各大城市的醫療機構及長廊上許多等待救命的病患;在平靜的社區弄堂,親朋好友正在為失去的親人哭泣,這是多麼令人哀慟的歷史鏡頭,我們絕難想像當人類文明進入前所未有的繁榮時代,仍然無法戰勝病毒,而變為人類歷史上的浩刧。

川普總統已宣稱美國要停止每年對世界衛生組織近五億美元之資助,他指責世衛組織無法為此次疫情提供完整公正之資訊,而導致包括美國在內的國家遭受慘重災情,川普再次提到世界貿易組織對待美國之不公平,對聯合國等國際組織給以指責。

但是,微軟創辦人蓋茲則認為,美國切斷對世衛組織之資助是件十分危險的舉措。

今天美國仍然是世界超級強國,我們掌握世界之軍事及經濟力量,從任何角度看來,我們對世界之和平有不可推卸之責任,決不可輕言退出,何況全球還有絕大多數的人民等待我們的援手。

我們呼籲白宮國家領導人要叁思,尤其是當全地球人類遭此浩劫之時,美國還在乎五億元會費,我們能夠獨善其身嗎

Today the Coronavirus has brought the human tragedy to all the people of the world. 


People are suffering the pain in Paris, France, at the beaches of Miami, Florida, and in Times Square in New York City. Most of the streets are empty. We hear crying at different community homes and in hospitals all over the world people are losing their loved ones. We just don’t understand how this virus could destroy the modern society we have worked to build for so many years.


President Trump has just announced that the United States will halt funding to the World Health Organization (WHO) because they could not get accurate information to the world about the pandemic. The president also criticized that the WHO didn’t treat the U.S. fairly.


This morning Microsoft founder Bill Gates said in his tweet, “Halting funding for the World Health Organization during a world health crisis is as dangerous as it sounds.”


We want also to urge the President that we as a super power in the world have a responsibility to “rescue” the world. Can we isolate?
