美國新冠疫情日記 06/29/2020


We Are In A National Crisis Again


Tens of millions of confirmed cases of the coronavirus have been reported all over the world today. Twenty-five percent of the world’s cases are in the U.S. We now have more than 2.5 million cases and 125,000 deaths. Such terrible figures really prove that we lack the ability to fight this crisis.


Today, America is facing three major issues: the Coronavirus and public health, the economy and the radical problem. Whether we should even wear masks under the current pandemic conditions in the nation cannot be agreed on. And at the federal, local and state levels of government, because of different ideologies, there are no firm agreements on the many issues we are facing in the crisis. There is no leadership in command as a central power. Sadly, this is the situation with the coronavirus.


Health and Human Services Secretary Alex Azar has warned that our time was running out for the U.S. to curb the spread of coronavirus as cases rise cross the country, particularly in the west and south.


We were very sad to learn that our dear friend, the mayor of the City of Stafford, Leonard Scarcella, passed away last night. He was a very good friend of the Asian community. He also was the longest serving mayor in U.S. history for 49 years. His legacy will be remembered by us.


In this crisis time, we have also learned that Harris County Judge Linda Hidalgo has been confirmed with the coronavirus. We admire her leadership at this critical time and we wish her all the best.


As a nation, we are facing this unprecedented challenge. It is everybody’s responsibility to carry out your duties and to contribute however you can from your position as a citizen. Let’s all team up to rescue our country.

           公衞再現危機

遭受新冠病毒肆虐的世界人口已突破一千萬人次,僅是美國就佔四分之一的二百五十萬人,死亡人數也達十二萬五千人,這次的公共衛生危機充分顕示國家動員能力之不足,造成有史以來天災加人禍的極大不幸。

目前我們所面臨的是公衛、經濟及種族之叁大危機,使這個開放民主之社會在遭遇毒惡的病毒時束手無策,就連是否要戴口罩都無法口徑一致,加上地方民主共和兩黨早已政見分歧,聯邦政府更無法領銜指揮。

衛生部長艾薩剛剛提出警告,我們的時間已經不多,疫情已經在美國西南州猖狂蔓延,我們要求全國民眾要自愛,保持社交距離,戴上口罩,令人諷剌的是副總統潘斯昨天在參加德州一項教會集會上,近百人的唱詩班沒有一個人戴口罩,白宮當局還宣稱全國疫情已經持平。

我們驚聞德州休斯敦近郊的斯坦福市市長史格勒昨日逝世,現年七十九歲在美國歷史上任職最久的市長,在其四十九年任期內,把斯坦福市建設成為小而美之城,他對我們亞裔社區特別友善,好友譚秋晴女士也剛就任該市市議員,另外同時傳來我們居住的赫裏斯郡郡長赫達格疑似新冠病毒感染,目前正在家自我隔離中,這位精明能幹的女郡長是來自哥倫比亞之移民,我們祝福她早日康復。

我們今天的挑戰已經是每位國民共有的問題,任何人都已無法逃避, 希望大家捲起袖子,在各自崗位上貢獻力量,來挽救國家,挽救自己。
