最近,美国面临的防疫压力日益增大。据纽约州政府官网,当地时间3月15日,美国纽约州州长安德鲁·科莫(Andrew Cuomo)举行发布会,宣布纽约州新冠肺炎确诊病例已达729例。

之后,科莫介绍了纽约州应对新冠病毒的情况,并呼吁联邦政府进一步放宽新冠肺炎病毒检测机构限制,让更多机构参与到新冠肺炎检测中;其次,要为各州制定统一的抗疫原则,不能各自为阵。

同时,他表示自己已经给总统特朗普写了一封公开信,希望他动用美国军方的工程兵部队来将一些现有建筑改造成医院,以提高医疗系统的承受能力。

(《纽约时报》15日刊登了科莫给特朗普的公开信)

In an open letter to President Trump, the Governor urged Trump to deploy the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers to leverage its expertise, equipment and people power to retrofit and equip existing facilities to serve as temporary medical centers.

科莫提出,联邦政府应向中国学习,动用国家力量抗击疫情,并出动军队修建医疗设施,避免医疗设施不足。他表示,中国、韩国等国家举全国之力战“疫”都起到了很好的效果。

科莫说,“我们需要更多的医院容量,我们需要更多的设备。你需要一些方法来腾出纽约州那53000张床位。你需要建造或改造实体建筑。需要购置数千件设备。”

"You're going to need more hospital capacity. You're going to need more facilities. You're going to need ways to free up those 53,000 beds. You're going to need to construct or retrofit physical buildings. Acquire thousands of pieces of equipment like this. "

“州政府做不到。我没有这样的人力,我没有这样的资源。但即便有资源,我也没有实际能力,在三周内就把纽约州立大学的宿舍,改造成医院。我做不到。”

“A state can't do that. I don't have that workforce. I don't have the resources, but even if I had the resources, I don't have the physical capacity to turn SUNY dorms into hospitals in 3 weeks. I can't.”

“只有一种力量可以做到,那就是工程兵部队和军方的设备。他们就是做这些的,他们建桥梁、建军营,他们有数万人,有卡车,挖掘机等设备。有后勤管理,有购买力。现在就应让他们投入工作,确定可以被改造的现有设施,把他们作为医疗设施。”

“There's only one workforce that can do that. It's the Army Corps of Engineers and the military assets. That's what they do. They build bridges, they build camps, they have tens of thousands of personnel, trucks, equipment, excavators, logistical managers, purchasing power. Use them to come in right now, identify existing facilities that can be retrofitted and use them to do it.”

 “中国差不多一个月内就建设了数十家医院。怎么做到的?因为中国政府介入了,说我们(中国)要这样做,要动用国家力量。”

“China built dozens of hospitals in literally a month. How? The Chinese government came in and said we’re going to do this, we’re going to nationalize it.”






 
“韩国也一样。你不能留给州政府来解决,我做不到。我既没有资源也没有能力。”
“South Korea, the same thing. You can't leave it to the states. I can't do it. I do not have the resources or the capacity.”
