UNIDENTIFIED MALE: When public health officials describe this flu season so far, they're describing it as having started early, early as in September as opposed to typically in October and also being particularly hard on kids. You know, we've talked a lot about the corona virus here but let me show you flu numbers so far this flu season. 
 
未知男性:目前,公共卫生官员描述到流感季节时,他们说它开始得很早,早在9月而不是在10月,而且对孩子们也形势也特别严峻。你知道,我们已经讨论了很多关于冠状病毒的内容但是让我向你们展示到目前为止这个流感季节的流感数据。

In the United States alone, some 29 million illnesses, 280,000 hospitalizations and 16,000 deaths and we look at that hospitalization number, the - - the most hospitalizations occur in people who are 65 and older. 

仅在美国,就有2900万人患病,280000人住院治疗,16000人死亡。我们看看住院治疗的人数,住院治疗人群多在65岁以上。

But the next biggest category is newborns to four years old. So, you know, this flu can be particularly hard on kids and this year so far has been the worst year for kids if you take out 2009 which was the H1N1 flu pandemic. This now becomes one of the worst years on record for kids with regard to the flu. 
 
其次是四岁以下的新生儿。所以,这种流感对孩子们来说尤其艰难,除了2009年的H1N1流感,今年是迄今为止对孩子们来说最糟糕的一年。对于孩子们来说,今年是有记录以来流感最严重的一年。

I want to show you again just quickly looking at flu numbers here which I just shared with you and corona virus again because we've been talking about corona virus so much. On the left those are U.S. numbers, on the right are global numbers for corona virus and you can see obviously flu does cause a lot more illness and a lot more death in the United States and around the world. 
 
我想再给你们快速看一下流感的数字,我刚和你们分享了一遍新型冠状病毒,因为我们一直在讨论冠状病毒。左边是美国的数字,右边是冠状病毒的全球数字。你可以明显地看到流感在美国和全球各地引发的死亡人数更多,同时引发更多疾病。

The reason there continues to be such concern about corona virus is because it is a new virus and whenever you have a new virus you're not exactly sure how it's going to behave how it's going to trend, or if - - if it's going to continue to mutate. So those are things that researchers are keeping an eye on but certainly here in the United States we've got to keep an eye on flu as well. Can't take our eye off the ball and it's still not too late to get the flu shot. Something we talk about a lot. 
 
关于冠状病毒一直存在这样的担忧是因为它是一种新病毒,对于新病毒人们不确定它的表现症状以及发展趋势,或者它是否会继续变异。这些都是研究人员关注的问题但在美国我们也必须关注流感。我们必须密切关注,现在打流感疫苗还为时不晚。这是我们经常谈论的话题。
