A "Covid jail" has been opened in Germany for people who repeatedly break quarantine rules.

德国为屡次违反隔离规定的人设立了一座“新冠监狱”。

 

The facility in Neumünster, in the state of Schleswig-Holstein, launched in January and sees inmates locked up to ensure they self-isolate, with 40 retired police officers volunteering as guards.

德国石勒苏益格-荷尔斯泰因州政府今年1月就在该州新明斯特市设立了一家“新冠监狱”。 他们把拒绝遵守防疫规定的人关起来,确保其自我隔离,40名退休警官自愿担任警卫。

 

The prison is made up of six cells in the unused annexe of a young offenders centre surrounded by barbed wire fencing on the outskirts of the small northern town.

annexe [ˈæneks]:n.附属建筑

barbed [bɑːbd]:adj.有刺的

 

To be sent to the facility, a person must be refusing to properly isolate after travelling, being exposed to a high-risk contact or having received a positive test result. But the local authority has insisted people will only be locked up as a "last resort".

被送到该监狱的人必须是在旅行、接触过高风险人群或收到新冠病毒阳性检测结果后拒绝遵守隔离规定的人。但当地政府坚称,只有在“万不得已”的情况下,才会把违规者关起来。

 

Inmates are allowed televisions, laptops and mobile phones, and the rooms contain a comfortable bed, while psychological support is also available.

“囚犯”可以使用电视机、笔记本电脑和手机,房间内还有舒适的床,另外“监狱”还提供心理辅导。

 

"The isolation of suspected infected people in their own homes is an essential element in getting the infection rate under control," Sönke Schulz, of the local district council, told reporters in January, reports Deutsche Welles.

据德国之声报道,当地区议会的逊克·舒尔茨一月份接受记者采访时说:“将疑似感染者隔离在自己家中是控制感染率的关键因素。”

 

"Anyone who does not comply with this is putting other people at risk.

“任何不遵守这一规定的人都将他人置于危险之中。”

 

"It should not really be any different from quarantining at home," Schulz added.

他补充说:“这里其实应该和居家隔离没有什么区别。”

 

He pointed out that by the time the evidence-gathering, fine and court order have been issued, there may only be a couple of days left of the 14 required to spend at the guarded accommodation.

他指出,等到证据收集、罚款和法院命令发出时,14天的隔离期可能只剩下没几天了。

 

Mr Schulz said no one will be required to stay there longer than their normal quarantine period.

舒尔茨表示,人们只需要在那里待到正常隔离期结束。

 

Peter Schröder, the local councilor at Neumünster who is taking responsibility for the prison, said it will be used more as a deterrent.

负责这座监狱的新明斯特市当地议员彼得·斯克勒德说,这座监狱更多的是起到一个威慑违作用。

 

"We hope the effort will set an example," he told a press conference in recent weeks.

他在最近几周的新闻发布会上表示:“我们希望这一努力将树立一个范例。”

 

"We hope there will be hardly any cases [of people being incarcerated in this way]. Up until now there have not been many."

他说:“我们希望不会有任何人以这种方式被监禁。到目前为止,在这里隔离的并不多。”
