航班影片為錯誤訊息之說武斷 It’s arbitrary to say “The video is a case of misinformation”

《環球新聞》指出,關於「中國飛抵多倫多航班」之影片含錯誤訊息,此事件與武漢肺炎無關。其記者Jamie Mauracher於推特指出,皮爾區救護員表示,病人與武漢肺炎無關。

According to Global News, the video about the flight from China to Toronto includes false message, and this case is not related to Coronavirus. Global News journalist Jamie Mauracher wrote a post in Twitter, saying: “This video is getting tons of play tonight. Our @NWestoll spoke to @Peel_Paramedics who tell @globalnewsto this is a case of misinformation. Patient was taken off plane for what paramedics say is believed to be a NON #coronavirus related issue. ”

本報就此澄清,不可就此判斷涉事影片錯誤訊息。影片題目「剛剛從中國飛抵加拿大多倫多的航班暫時不能下機,已查出7位發燒友!」隻字未提武漢肺炎,也從沒說過那七人有無確診。除非影片中之航班並非中國到多倫多,發燒人數並非七人,否則不能說這影片含錯誤訊息。武漢肺炎潛伏期長達兩星期,期間可以無發燒症狀,過往更曾出現診斷呈陰性但後來發現有武漢肺炎的個案。

It’s arbitrary to say that “the video is a case of misinformation”. The title of the video is “The flight from China to Toronto found 7 patients having fever, and no one was allowed to get off.” This title mentioned neither anything about Coronavirus nor any confirmed case. It could only be saying “misinformation” if the flight is not from China to Toronto or the number of fever patient is wrong. The latent period of Coronavirus can be as long as 2 weeks, and it is possible that no symptoms, especially fever is present. In the history, some “negative” cases became confirmed case afterwards.

本報呼籲各位市民,切勿因為武漢肺炎而恐慌或杯弓蛇影,但也切勿因為政府、傳媒說疫情輕微而輕視了武漢肺炎的恐怖。武漢肺炎至今共錄7711病例,170人死亡,暫時死亡率雖為較低的2.2%,仍可致命。

It is irrational to be either panic or contempt. There are 7711 Coronavirus confirmed cases and 170 deaths up to now. The death rate of the virus is 2.2% which seems not high, but such fatality cannot be ignored.
