Bracing for hard times (P6)
江苏省沭阳高级中学 刘玉娟
Lead-in
 
In the face of a previously unknown virus, China has rolled out perhaps the most ambitious, agile and aggressive disease containment effort in history.
 
During this epidemic, many senior high students have continued to pursue their dreams by studying hard at home.
We are convinced that we will succeed in fighting against the virus.

However, the world is not ready. The situation outside of China is concerning, as the world saw a huge increase in the number of new cases and the WHO raised its global risk assessment of the virus from "high" to "very high.
 
Herd immunity to COVID-19 would only be reached when approximately 60% of the population has recovered from the disease.
Herd immunity: will the UK’s coronavirus strategy work? 
 
U.S. President Donald Trump once responded to the virus like this, "It’s going to disappear. One day, like a miracle, it will disappear.“
Do you think his comment ridiculous?

How have people from different countries responded to the sudden outbreak of the novel coronavirus epidemic?

Skimming
The structure of the passage:
Para 1: Introduction: People’s _______ toward the epidemic can vary. (attitudes)
Para 2-7: The _________ for people’s differing attitudes in the US, Germany and Japan. (reasons)
Para 8: The key to surviving the epidemic is a strong _____________. (healthcare system)

Summary:
Due to the different conditions and healthcare systems, people’s attitudes towards the pandemic can vary in the US, Germany and Japan, which indicates that each country’s healthcare system is the key to ensuring people’s safety and survival during a severe pandemic.

Reading for details
1. As to the novel coronavirus epidemic, why are the conditions in the US getting worse?
(Answer: In the US, there is no universal healthcare system. The vast majority of people don’t have adequate health insurance; Many people have no choice but to conceal their symptoms because of the high cost of healthcare. )

2. Why are the conditions to deal with the virus in Germany among the best in the world?
(Answer: Germany has one of the world’s best-developed public healthcare systems. People can follow the quarantine measures and stay at home without having to worry about losing their jobs. )

3. In spite of its universal public healthcare, Japan still has difficulty in dealing with the pandemic, why?
(Answer: People in Japan tend to seek more medical care than is necessary. It will be a burden for Japan if everyone with light symptoms visits a hospital. )

Critical thinking 
Recently, some inbound passengers were found to have hidden their travel history to countries or regions hit hard by the epidemic. Some have even masked their symptoms by taking fever-reducing medication to pass customs checks.
近日,一些入境人员被发现故意隐瞒疫情严重国家或地区旅行史、甚至用吃退烧药等方式掩盖发热症状,在海关卫生检疫环节蒙混过关。
In order to avoid losing their jobs, some people conceal their symptoms or refuse to follow the advised quarantine period. Do you think this is right? What’s your opinion?

Language focus

1. According to the 2019 US Census, 28 million people are not covered or do not have adequate health insurance, meaning that they would probably avoid getting tested for the virus, for fear of the cost of being hospitalized.
分析:28 million people are not covered or do not have adequate health insurance是整个句子的_______句, meaning ...为动词-ing形式作________;后面的 that引导________从句。 (主;伴随状语;宾语)
释义:据2019年美国人口普查数据显示,美国有两千八百万人没有医疗保险或者没有足够的医疗保险,这就意味着他们可能会因为担心住院费用而避免进行病毒检测。

2. People in Germany – who have “high levels of job security”, according to the Los Angeles Times – are also more likely to follow the quarantine measures and stay at home without having to worry about losing their jobs.
分析: 本句的主句为:People in Germany are also more likely to …;两个破折号之间的成分是_______,其中who引导_____从句;according to …说明信息的来源;and连接两个并列成分:follow … 和stay … 。 (插入语;定语)
释义:据《洛杉矶时报》报道,德国人“工作保障程度很高”,他们更有可能遵守隔离措施并待在家中,无需担心失业。

Critical thinking

Mini writing
What attitude should we take in face of the novel coronavirus, while the entrance examination is just around the corner?
Support your views with 2-3 points.

Possible answer:
Although the virus has been disturbing our normal lives and learning places, we should be calm and optimistic.
No one can deny the importance of optimism. An optimistic attitude can help us to achieve our objectives and realize our dreams. By being optimistic, we can face our challenges and overcome setbacks with confidence. What's more, being optimistic can help us stay calm and figure out effective solutions, even in desperate situations. Take Beethoven as a case in point, how could he, a great German music composer, who became deaf in his forties, compose so many enduring and classic symphonies without optimism?
