本周二(1月19日)新当选的总统乔·拜登和副总统卡玛拉·哈里斯在华盛顿特区举行的新冠肺炎逝者追悼仪式上向疲惫的美国公民表示慰问。

 

"To heal we must remember,” Mr Biden said. “It’s hard sometimes to remember, but that’s how we heal. It’s important to do that as a nation. That’s why we’re here today. Between sundown and dusk, let us shine the lights in the darkness along the sacred pool of reflection and remember all who we lost.”

拜登说:“想让伤口愈合,我们就必须铭记。有时候铭记很痛苦,但这就是我们疗伤的方式。作为一个国家,铭记很重要。这就是我们为什么今天在这里举行悼念仪式。在日落和黄昏之间,让我们在黑暗中点起灯,照亮神圣的反思池,记住我们失去的所有人。”

"May our prayer this evening serve as a small expression of our national desire to comfort and strengthen those who have endured the loss of a loved one to this pandemic, and may it be a resounding gesture of gratitude for all those who have cared for the victims of this virus and their loved ones,” Cardinal Wilton Gregory, the archbishop of Washington, said to open the event.

华盛顿红衣主教威尔顿·格雷戈里在启动追悼仪式时说:“愿我们今晚的祈祷能够代表全国人对那些在疫情中失去所爱的人聊表安慰和支持,愿所有曾关怀照顾过新冠肺炎患者及其至爱的人都能听到我们感恩之声。”

 

On Friday, federal health officials warned that a new, highly contagious variant of Covid first identified in Britain could become the driving source of infections by March, leading to yet another surge in cases before the US even is on a path to recover from the previous ones this winter.

Earlier in the day, President Trump also offered his remembrances to Covid victims in a farewell address from the White House.

"We grieve for every life lost, and pledge in their memory to wipe out this terrible pandemic once and for all,” Mr Trump said.

特朗普说:“我们哀悼每一个失去的生命,并承诺将这场可怕的大瘟疫从人们的记忆中彻底抹除。”
