综合美国全国广播公司(NBC)等美媒报道,在得克萨斯州,自8月13日开始检测以来,已有超过5.1万名学生确诊新冠肺炎,比两周前增加了3.3万人。此外该州还有超过1.3万名教职工确诊。

There are more than 51,000 student COVID cases in the state so far since they started tracking on August 13. That number is way up from the 18,000 recorded just two weeks ago. There are also more than 13,000 staff cases.

在犹他州,当学校在八月中旬开学时,确诊新冠的儿童人数就已经在增加,开学后确诊率更是急剧上升。在8月最后两周内,就有超过2000名5到11岁的儿童新冠检测结果呈阳性,而去年同期,仅有约240人。

Cases among Utah children already were rising when schools began to open in mid-August; after that, case rates have shot up even more precipitously. 

Around 2,000 Utah children ages 5 to 11 tested positive for the virus from Aug. 15 to 30. During the same two weeks last year, 240 kids that age tested positive.

在佛罗里达州李县,自8月10日开学以来,当地学生感染病例已达到4371例,已经超过该地去年全年的学生感染病例数。

Lee County schools have reported more COVID-19 cases in its first four weeks this year than the entirety of the previous school year. Since the first day of school on Aug. 10, a total of 4,371 cases have been confirmed.

据CNN 8日报道,自8月16日以来,佛罗里达州迈阿密戴德县的公立学校已有13名教职工死于新冠肺炎。这13名员工包括四名老师、一名学校食堂员工、一名保安、7名校车司机,他们均未接种新冠疫苗。

Thirteen school employees from Miami-Dade County Public Schools have died from Covid-19 since August 16, the school district and local teacher union told CNN on Tuesday.

Among the 13 were four teachers, one security monitor, one cafeteria worker and seven school bus drivers, United Teachers of Dade President Karla Hernandez-Mats said. All were unvaccinated.

尽管如此,很多学校负责人依旧坚持不要求学生戴口罩…… 美国全国广播公司称,口罩和疫苗在很多地区已经被严重政治化(heavily politicized)。

美国教师联盟主席对此表示,在前总统特朗普的影响下,学校已经变成了一个政治“战场”(political “battlefield”)。



美国各地反口罩反疫苗团体在疫情暴发以来,不断试图进入学校管理层,影响校方政策。正因如此,才出现了一大批对感染人数激增视而不见、执意不出台口罩令的学校管理人员。
