每日英語跟讀 Ep.K022: About SKorea -Seoul regulates older vehicles to curb pollution

To combat concerns about fine dust, especially during the winter, the city government of Seoul has toughened regulations on high-polluting vehicles and construction sites in the December-to-March period.

為打消外界對微細粉塵的擔憂,尤其在冬季期間,首爾市政府於12月至明年3月間,已加強對高污染車輛和建築工地的規範。

The measure is designed to ease the intensity and frequency of fine dust through tougher regulations. The city aims to reduce 120 tons of fine dust emissions during the four months.

該措施旨在藉由更嚴格的規定,降低微細粉塵的濃度與發生率。首爾市目標是在這4個月內減少120公噸的微細粉塵排放。

Aging and high-polluting vehicles without devices to reduce emissions are restricted in the city from 6 a.m. to 9 p.m. on weekdays. Violators are charged a fine of 100,000 won per day.

老舊及未加裝降低排放設備的高污染車輛,平日早上6點到晚間9點限制在市內行駛。違者每日可處以10萬韓元罰鍰。

More Koreans giving up looking for jobs 更多南韓民眾放棄謀職

According to a survey on the working age population - those aged 15 or over - by Statistics Korea, the number of discouraged workers stood at 534,000 in December 2019, the month before the novel coronavirus first arrived in Korea.

根據南韓統計廳一項對工作年齡人口的調查,在新型冠狀病毒最早到達南韓前的2019年12月,15歲或以上的沮喪勞工(或稱失望勞工)人數為53萬4000人。

Since the first case was reported here on Jan. 20, the tally of discouraged workers has showed a general increase, though there were some ups and downs from month to month. Compared to December 2019, the tally for November 2020 grew 97,000 to reach 631,000.

自南韓1月20日通報首起確診病例後,沮喪勞工的人數就已呈現普遍上升,儘管按月仍有若干波動。相較於2019年12月,2020年11月的人數增加9萬7000人,達63萬1000人。

Some research analysts say that the climbing number of discouraged workers cannot wholly be attributed to the COVID-19 pandemic.

部分的研究分析師表示,沮喪勞工人數的攀升,無法完全歸咎於2019冠狀病毒病大流行。
