英格兰免费新冠检测盒供应紧张

UK prime minister Boris Johnson’s plea for “cautious” new year celebrations in England is being undermined by problems with the availability of lateral flow and PCR tests — a vital tool in stemming the spread of Covid-19 infection.

英国首相鲍里斯•约翰逊(Boris Johnson)要求英格兰居民“谨慎”庆祝新年的呼吁,正被侧向流动检测(LFT)盒和聚合酶链式反应检测(PCR)盒的供应问题削弱。这两种检测盒是阻止新型冠状病毒肺炎(COVID-19,即2019冠状病毒病)感染蔓延的重要工具。

Pharmacies said high demand for lateral flow tests was outstripping supply, while Sir Roger Gale, Tory MP for North Thanet, wrote on Twitter: “Kent appears to be in lateral flow and PCR test gridlock.”

英格兰各地的药房表示,对侧向流动检测盒的巨大需求超出了供应。与此同时,北赛尼特选区(North Thanet)的保守党议员罗杰•盖尔爵士(Sir Roger Gale)在Twitter上写道:“肯特郡的侧向流动检测盒和PCR检测盒供应似乎卡住了。”

Gale said there were “no stocks in chemists and no East Kent delivery slots available”, a situation familiar to many people across England trying to book tests.

盖尔表示,“药房没有库存,肯特郡东部地区在网上订不到送货时段”。英格兰各地许多试图预订检测盒的人都遇到了类似的情况。
