2000万剂疫苗失踪,捐款可插队接种……这些现象让美媒有点担心了    
来源:21英语网    日期: 2021-02-02
为遏制病毒传播、降低病亡率,目前美国各州正在加紧推进新冠疫苗接种。美疾控中心网站数据显示,截至1月30日,全美已分发接近5000万剂新冠疫苗,完成接种约2960万剂。然而,却有外媒曝光,拜登政府正在寻找大约2000万剂“失踪”的疫苗。

美国媒体《Politico》:
“一团糟”:拜登上任10天,被疫苗谜团困扰

 
报道称,拜登团队初来乍到,带着200页左右的疫情响应方案准备施行。然而,上周的大部分时间他们却不得不着手应对雨后春笋般出现的问题。入主白宫一周后,拜登的团队仍然在努力寻找大约2000万剂分发到各州疫苗的踪迹——这一谜团拖慢了全美疫苗接种计划的速度。

Biden’s team arrived at the White House with a 200-page response plan ready to roll out. But instead, they have spent much of the last week trying to wrap their hands around the mushrooming crisis. After a week on the job, Biden’s team is still trying to locate upwards of 20 million vaccine doses that have been sent to states — a mystery that has hampered plans to speed up the national vaccination effort.

知情人士表示,现在大家的担忧主要集中在联邦政府的疫苗供给方面。拜登团队在寻找2000万剂疫苗的下落,这些疫苗由联邦政府购买后分发各州,然而现在却没有民众接种的记录。

People with knowledge of the response detailed fresh concerns that are centered largely on the federal government's vaccine supply. Biden's team is still trying to get a firm grasp on the whereabouts of more than 20 million doses of Covid-19 vaccine that the federal government bought and distributed to states but has yet to record as being administered to patients.

两名官员表示,这其中只有很小一部分——大约200万剂——是由于信息汇报上的滞后造成的。当联邦政府分发疫苗后,各州的健康卫生系统负责跟踪记录工作。随后,联邦政府就只有在疫苗接种的官方汇报记录后才会有数据更新。“我想他们真的是毫无准备,”一名顾问表示,“真是一团糟。”

Only a small percentage of those unaccounted for doses — roughly 2 million, two officials said — is due to lags in data reporting, the Biden team believes. Once the vaccine shipments are delivered to the states, responsibility for tracking them has been left up to states’ individual public health systems. The administration then only gets an update once the doses are actually administered and an official record is submitted.“I think they were really caught off guard by that,” said one adviser. “It’s a mess.”

这2000万“失联”的疫苗,却只是问题之一。最近一段时间,美国媒体相继曝光了疫苗接种时的乱象。有医院优先将疫苗分配给捐款者,而其他接种者仍在排队。相关医院为此道歉。



据《西雅图时报》报道,华盛顿州西雅图市一家医院给大约110名捐款超过一万美元的人发电子邮件,告诉他们可以预约接种,还附上仅供受邀人员登记使用的密码。而这家医院的网上公共预约系统中,登记接种者已经排到了3月底。目前,这家医院仅供受邀者使用的网上登记系统已被叫停。

A Washington hospital system apologized after The Seattle Times reported that it had offered vaccines to wealthy donors while others went without the coveted shots. Overlake Medical Center & Clinics sent an email to about 110 donors who gave more than $10,000 to the hospital system. The email gave the donors an access code to register for appointments “by invite” only. Last week, the public-facing Overlake registration site was fully booked through March.

《纽约时报》称,这家医院的举动,反映出了美国其他医疗机构的相似行为:将富有的“金主”放在优先大众的位置上。

The hospital’s conduct mirrors that of other facilities that have made news for prioritizing wealthy donors over the rest of the population.

该州州长Jay Inslee在上周的发布会上称,医院的举动“无法接受”。他说:“我们必须要让公众信任这个系统。”

The report drew a rebuke from Gov. Jay Inslee, who said during a news conference last Tuesday that the practice was “simply unacceptable.”“We have to maintain public credibility in this system,” he said.

据美国约翰斯•霍普金斯大学统计,截至北京时间2月1日8时23分,美国累计确诊病例26180411例,死亡病例441302例,是全球累计确诊病例和死亡病例最多的国家。
