號召「為氣候罷課」(Skolstrejk för klimatet)的瑞典環保少女通貝里(Greta Thunberg)24日表示,自己與父親疑似在歐洲旅行的火車上感染新冠肺炎,兩人分別出現咳嗽、發燒等症狀,卻礙於瑞典嚴格規定而無法檢疫,只能暫時自我隔離。她也呼籲年輕人重視防疫責任,遵循政府指示及避免社交接觸。

10天前出現症狀

通貝里24日在Instagram帳上表示,她與父親三月初搭火車前往中歐地區旅行,此時新冠肺炎正於歐洲爆發,由於瑞典當前只針對重症及高風險群體進行檢驗,因此通貝里父女無法進行篩檢,目前只能自主隔離。通貝里說,她在大約10天前出現了咳嗽、顫抖、疲倦等症狀,她父親病況較為嚴重,還出現發燒現象。

 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 

The last two weeks I’ve stayed inside. When I returned from my trip around Central Europe I isolated myself (in a borrowed apartment away from my mother and sister) since the number of cases of COVID-19 (in Germany for instance) were similar to Italy in the beginning. Around ten days ago I started feeling some symptoms, exactly the same time as my father - who traveled with me from Brussels. I was feeling tired, had shivers, a sore throat and coughed. My dad experienced the same symptoms, but much more intense and with a fever. In Sweden you can not test yourself for COVID-19 unless you’re in need of emergent medical treatment. Everyone feeling ill are told to stay at home and isolate themselves. I have therefore not been tested for COVID-19, but it’s extremely likely that I’ve had it, given the combined symptoms and circumstances. Now I’ve basically recovered, but - AND THIS IS THE BOTTOM LINE: I almost didn’t feel ill. My last cold was much worse than this! Had it not been for someone else having the virus simultainously I might not even have suspected anything. Then I would just have thought I was feeling unusually tired with a bit of a cough. And this it what makes it so much more dangerous. Many (especially young people) might not notice any symptoms at all, or very mild symptoms. Then they don’t know they have the virus and can pass it on to people in risk groups. We who don’t belong to a risk group have an enormous responsibility, our actions can be the difference between life and death for many others. Please keep that in mind, follow the advice from experts and your local authorities and #StayAtHome to slow the spread of the virus. And remember to always take care of each other and help those in need. #COVID #flattenthecurve

呼籲大家疏遠社交距離

通貝里警告,新冠肺炎在無症狀的情況下也能快速傳播,在全球各地有大量確診案例是無症狀感染者,尤其是年輕人,可能會因為自身沒注意症狀而讓傳染病擴散開來,她強調,身為非高風險族群的年輕人「肩負更多責任,因為他們的一舉一動會影響到他人的生命」。

通貝里呼籲年輕人,要聆聽專家意見並遵循政府的社交距離政策(Social distancing),社交距離目的在於減少人與人之間接觸的距離和機會,以降低疾病擴散的風險,包含禁止公共集會及居家隔離等等。此外,負責科學新知的《新科學人》(New Scientist)雜誌指出,「氣候罷課行動」也建議,採用虛擬抗議行動取代街頭抗議,以避免更多大規模群聚感染。
