每日英語跟讀 Ep.K066: About Europe - Hungarian family sails around the globe in a 50-feet boat called ’Teatime’

While the world was grappling with the pandemic, a Hungarian family of four decided last summer to fulfil their dream:sailing around the globe in a 50-feet boat called "Teatime."

當世界在疫情中掙扎時,一個4口匈牙利家庭去年夏天決定實現他們的夢想,用一艘50英尺的船「午茶時間」航行全球。

Domonkos Bosze and his wife Anna, who have been sailing for more than a decade, had planned the adventure long before the COVID-19 pandemic.

多蒙科斯.波澤與他的妻子安娜,已經有逾十年的航行經驗,在武漢肺炎大流行開始前就已著手計畫這趟冒險許久。

While the pandemic presented them with the dilemma of whether this was the right time to go, in the end their determination overruled all worries and risks.

當疫情帶給他們不知何時該出發的困境時,他們的決心最終駁回了一切的擔憂與風險。

They follow the changes in coronavirus rules in each country and take a test or go into quarantine as required.

他們遵循每個國家不同的武漢肺炎規定,並且接受檢測與在必要時進行隔離。

Depending on COVID restrictions, they plan to sail on this year or next year towards the Pacific, and now they say their trip could last another 5-6 years, stopping for extended periods in the southern Pacific and on the Indian ocean.

依據武漢肺炎禁令,他們計畫今年或明年航行至太平洋,且他們現在表示,他們的旅行可能還要再持續5至6年,將在南太平洋與印度洋停留較長的時間。

Czech trainers teach dogs to sniff out Covid 捷克訓練師教導狗狗偵測冠狀病毒疾病

In a dog training centre built inside a shipping container located in a Czech mountain village, Renda, Cap and Laky are being put to the test.

捷克山村一座貨櫃打造的犬隻訓練中心內,「倫達(Renda)」、「凱普(Cap)」和 「拉奇(Laky)」正接受考驗。

They sniff at six vessels, each containing a piece of cloth with scent from patients with Covid-19, negative donors, or fake samples.

牠們嗅聞6個容器,每個容器都內含一塊布料,有的帶有武漢肺炎(新型冠狀病毒病,COVID-19)患者的氣味,有的是採檢呈陰性者身上的氣味,或者根本是假樣本。

The team of dog trainers are working in their own time and report a 95-percent success rate in Covid-19 detection in samples of human scent.

這群犬隻訓練員利用自己的閒暇時間進行研究,通報(犬隻)在人體氣味樣本偵測COVID-19方面,成功率高達95%。

"The study is designed to verify dogs’ ability to detect Covid-19 and generate a method enabling the use of trained dogs in combatting the pandemic," project head Gustav Hotovy told AFP.

計畫負責人霍托維告訴法新社:「這項研究目的在驗證犬隻偵測COVID-19的能力,並設計出一種能利用經過訓練的犬隻來對抗疫情的方法。」

The samples used are obtained merely by rubbing a piece of cotton against the patient’s skin. The team then has to ensure the sample is virus-free to prevent the dogs from catching the disease.

研究人員僅以一小團摩擦過患者皮膚的棉布來取得樣本,接著必須確認樣本上面並未沾染病毒,以防犬隻染疫。

Using the same sampling method, a Finnish team has been using dogs for testing at Helsinki airport, reporting its dogs can detect the virus with close to 100 percent accuracy.

芬蘭一個研究團隊也用相同的採樣方法,利用犬隻在赫爾辛基機場進行篩檢,並通報團隊犬隻偵測病毒的準確率近乎百分之百。
