这位在英国的中国留学生火了!因为他做了这样一件事……

最近,一位在英国的中国留学生成了当地的“网红”人物。


他以绘制图表的方式,让不少英国民众和网友更直观地了解了英国疫情的变化。

A Chinese law student in the UK has been voluntarily creating graphs and charts and posting them on Twitter to help local residents and netizens better understand the spread of COVID-19.

26岁的吴芃,在英国利兹大学学习国际企业法。


 
3月5日,他根据英国卫生和社会保健部(DHSC)提供的数据,制作了第一份图表。

Wu Peng, a 26-year-old international corporate law student at Leeds University, made his first chart on March 5 using the daily COVID-19 update from the British Department of Health and Social Care (DHSC). 

当天DHSC在官推上说,5日的数据将会在下午晚些时候公布。他们正在努力提供最新消息,一有结果会马上推送。吴芃则在下面回复:英国方面为什么不使用大数据技术,实时跟进信息呢?


 
而在DHSC公布了5日数据后,吴芃的绘图也来了。他在推特中写道,自己自愿做数据更新汇总,制作实时图表帮助大家更好了解病例增长趋势。


 
从那之后,他每天依照官方数据在推特上绘图,跟进疫情进展。

Since then, he has created daily charts using data from official sources to keep his Twitter followers up to date on the pandemic.

吴芃的每日更新相当及时,而且发布在DHSC每日情况介绍的评论区中,网友只需一眼就能看清疫情变化的曲线。

Each day, Wu quickly updates the chart, which allows viewers to see the growth curve of the virus at a glance, as soon as the DHSC announces the daily numbers on Twitter.


 

后来,吴芃制作了更详细的版本,包括确诊病例数量和死亡人数等。同时,他还分享英国政府和卫生部门的最新消息,为数据参考提供更多渠道。

Since the week before last week, Wu has started to tweet one more chart showing a comparative trend in confirmed cases and fatalities in the country. In addition, he shares the latest information from the government and health authorities to offer more channels for further reference.
 


吴芃的努力,有效的提升了当地民众对疫情的重视程度。他的推特粉丝已超过1万人。大家认为他的图表很有用,希望他坚持下去,做得再详细些。中外网友也纷纷称赞他的及时反应。

His job proved to be an effective appeal to local residents for their attention to the virus. Wu has gained over 10,000 followers on Twitter so far. People see the charts as useful, and are requesting more. His quick response has earned him many compliments from netizens in both the UK and China.

吴芃在NHSC推文下的回复基本上都牢牢占据在 “最高赞”的地位,比如25日的两张图表,分别就有700+和300+的点赞。




 
网友们的留言则是这个画风:

“你就是这次疫情中出现的最美好的事物”


“已经做出来了,他太厉害了”


“好吧,但是我确定我们都认为吴芃最棒”


“你从不让人失望”


“谢谢你,吴芃”


一个学法律的留学生,就这样在DHSC的评论区成了“网红”,英国当地的媒体很快就找到吴芃做了采访。

当记者问到3月5日第一份图表出炉情况时,吴芃表示当时只有115个病例,但是英国政府并没有采取太多措施,这也意味着病例数量可能会更多。

Wu Peng said: “At that time, the total was 115 cases and I knew that because at that time the Government wasn’t taking much action it definitely meant the real number would be higher.”

当时他给出的预测在日后被证明是部分准确的:“直到采取有效的措施之前,每三天左右,病例数量会翻倍。”

At the time, when asked what his prediction for the coming days was, he warned with what has proved to be some accuracy: “Every three days or so, the number doubles until something effective is done.”

吴芃表示自己的动机也很简单:“每天根据英国政府的公开数据定时绘图,每个人可以更清晰地了解疫情趋势。每天坚持做这件事,实际上也是鼓励大家持续关注疫情。”

Wu Peng’s intention was simple. “What I do every day is to draw a chart based on publicly available government data in a timely manner so that everyone can understand the growth trend more clearly,” he explained. “Insisting on doing this every day actually encourages everyone to continue to pay attention to the epidemic.”

这篇报道还提到,3月9日,吴芃就在推特上表示:“希望英国政府通过法律采取某些强制措施,因为毫无疑问隔离是最有效的方法。“

On March 9, Wu Peng tweeted: “Please enact some mandatory measures by way of legislation, there is no doubt that isolation is the most effective method.”



同样,吴芃在采访中看到英国和中国两国在防疫措施上的不同,也注意到周围人群对疫情不够重视。

“不同的国家经济和社会背景不同,所以英国很难直接采取中国的做法。英国首相曾表示希望人们保持社交距离,就在我居住的利兹,到了周末你还是能看到很多人在一起聊天,很多人去公园。如果你不能和感染者保持社交距离,那就相当危险了。”

"Different countries and especially China have a different economic and social background so it is very hard for the UK to take action like China did. The Prime Minister said he wished people would follow social distancing but at the weekend you saw many people out chatting with each other and many people went to the park near where I live in Leeds. If you don’t keep at a safe distance from someone who is infected, it is quite dangerous."

“我不能给出预测。我只知道中国在8周时间内采取了严格的措施,而首相说英国现在的情况可能需要12周的时间。”

"I can’t make any prediction. I only know that in China they had eight weeks of very strict action and the Prime Minister has said here we will maybe be 12 weeks in this situation."

吴芃的坚持,也让他在微博上成为热搜话题,网友给他加油,也希望他在异国他乡平安健康。




随着新冠肺炎疫情在英国日趋严峻,英国高校停课,一些国际留学生选择暂时回国。而吴芃选择留在英国。他说,中国驻英国使领馆近日给在英中国留学生发放近20万个防疫“健康包(health kits)”,而在国内的家人也提供了很多实用信息和建议,“这些都有利于我们做好防护,保护自己”。

吴芃说,他会坚持每天更新表格,直到疫情趋势扭转。

“I will continue to do the updates every day until the tide turns,” Wu said.
 

吴芃所说的“健康包”里,有防疫急需的口罩、消毒湿巾、预防药品等。


据外交部发言人耿爽3月24日在例行记者会上介绍,中国驻英国、法国、意大利、沙特等国的使馆向当地的中国留学生发放了装有防疫物品和防疫指南的“健康包”,指导他们科学防疫,帮助他们加强防护,传递来自党和政府的关心和问候,来自祖国人民的呵护和叮咛。学生们纷纷表示,“健康包”等暖心举措让他们切实感受到党和政府的关爱、祖国亲人的支援和帮助,也感受到使领馆“始终在我们身后”。下一步,中国驻有关国家的使领馆还将陆续结合驻在国实际情况,及时将“健康包”发放到受疫情影响的海外学子手中。
