每日英語跟讀 Ep.818: About S.Korea - Drive-thru clinics: Korea’s new weapons in virus fight

South Korea is trying new ploys to battle the novel coronavirus outbreak.

南韓正嘗試新方法來對抗新型冠狀病毒的爆發。

Goyang, Gyeonggi Province, set up a drive-thru testing facility on Wednesday, where symptom checks, sample collection and payment receipt are done in one-stop fashion in under 10 minutes.

京畿道高陽市週三搭建一個得來速檢測設施,即以一站式的方式、不到10分鐘,在該設施完成症狀檢查、採樣和開立付款收據。

Gyeonggi Province communications official Park Hyun-su said that the checkups at the drive-thru are about 20 minutes faster than the typical way done at hospitals or public health centers. Park said the service will soon be introduced in other regions of the province. Other cities outside Gyeonggi Province with drive-thru clinics are Daegu and Sejong.

京畿道政府聯絡官朴炫秀(譯音)說,在得來速門診進行的體檢,比在各醫院或衛生所做的典型檢查約快20分鐘。朴還說,這項服務很快就將被引進該道其他地區。京畿道以外設有得來速門診的其他城市為大邱與世宗。

Aged 70 she was working 20 hours a day in a hospital just to make ends meet. Now at 75, Choi Soon-hwa is an unlikely fashion star and model in South Korea.

70歲時,她每天在醫院工作20小時也僅能餬口。現在75歲,崔順花在南韓是打破眾人印象的時尚明星和模特兒。

"I think of having this job at this age as a miracle," Choi says.

「我覺得在這年紀能有這份工作,已經是奇蹟了」,崔順花說。

She is now the oldest professional model in the South, and has walked runway at Seoul Fashion Week. It is a far cry from her life even just a few years ago when she was a care worker.

她是目前南韓年紀最大的職業模特兒,在首爾時尚週走過秀。這與她僅僅數年前還是一名看護員的生活截然不同。

"The stress was excruciating," she confesses.

「那時候壓力大得令人喘不過氣」,她坦言。

When she worked at the hospital, she says she had to dye her hair as patients didn’t want someone who "looked too old" to look after them. Now her pale locks have become an asset to a new generation of designers who value distinctiveness.

她說,她在醫院工作的那段時間,因為病患不希望被「看起來太老」的人照顧,她不得不染髮。現在,她的一頭銀髮反而成為重視獨特性的新世代設計師眼中的資產。
