烏干達因擔心埃博拉病毒而提前關閉學校過聖誕節

對於烏干達的學生來說,聖誕節似乎提前到來了,因為數百萬學生在周五就提前回家過節了。然而,在該國繼續與最嚴重的埃博拉疫情之一作鬥爭時,決定在學期結束前兩周在全國範圍內關閉學校是為了遏制埃博拉病毒的傳播。

一些專家對學校停課表示保留,認為鑑於埃博拉病毒的潛伏期可能持續兩天到三周,讓學生再保持兩周的封閉是阻止這種致命疾病傳播的更好方法。


It might seem like Christmas is coming early for students in Uganda as millions of them head home early for the school holidays on Friday. Yet the decision to close schools nationwide two weeks before the end of term has been taken to curb the spread of Ebola, as the country continues to battle one of its worst outbreaks.

Some experts have expressed reservations about the school shutdowns, arguing that keeping pupils contained for another two weeks would be a better way to halt the spread of the deadly disease, given the incubation period can last from two days to three weeks.
