英政府拟调整隔离要求

 

The British government is looking at reducing the time people have to self-isolate if they come into contact with someone with COVID-19 from the current 14 days through the use of a new testing regime, Health Secretary Matt Hancock said on Monday.

英国卫生大臣汉考克11月23日表示,英国政府正考虑缩短对新冠确诊病例密切接触者的14天自我隔离要求,以新的检测方案取而代之。

 

"We're piloting a process, using these new tests that we have, to allow people to take a test every single day instead of having to isolate for that period so that it picks up if you're positive even before you have symptoms," he told Sky News.

汉考克向天空新闻表示:我们正利用已有的新的检测手段展开试点,用每天检测的方法取代14天隔离期。这样的话,在症状出现之前就能提前甄别新冠感染者。

 

He said the scheme was being piloted this week and if successful, would be rolled out among health and social care staff and then in the new year more broadly.

汉考克表示,新方案本周试点,成功的话将很快在卫生和社会护理人员中展开,明年将在更大范围人群内铺开

 

According to The Times, England will introduce a new system on December 15 allowing passengers arriving from high-risk countries to take a COVID-19 test after five days of quarantine and to be released from any further self-isolation if they test negative.

另据《泰晤士报》报道,自12月15日起,来自高风险国家的赴英格兰旅客如在入境隔离第5天新冠病毒检测结果为阴性,将提前结束隔离期。
