Hand washing is a big deal at the Tufts Medical Center emergency room. Nurse Sandy Gibbons said they've seen a surge of flu patients in the last couple weeks .
在塔弗茨医学中心的急诊室,洗手可是一件大事。护士桑迪·吉本斯说最近几周感冒患者骤增。

“And it came on very fast. That's what we've noticed. It went from being a trickle to inundated within a matter of two to three days,” said Gibbons.
“我们发现,感冒传的很快,最初只是一小部分人,两三天内就蔓延了。”

Hospitals are inundated across Boston. Influenza cases are up more than 10-fold from last year's mild season. And that's a challenge for hospitals that already are nearly full, said Dr. David Hooper at Massachusetts General Hospital.
整个波士顿的医院人满为患,感冒病例比去年温和季节多10倍以上,这对那些已经满员的医院来说是个挑战,麻省总医院的戴维德·霍珀说。

“The surge in influenza patients since early December has really added a lot more pressure on managing beds and making sure everyone gets the care they need,” he said.
“12月来感冒病人数量骤增,这对床位管理来说增加了很多压力,很难确保每人都得到医护。”

But while 47 of the 50 U.S. states are reporting widespread flu activity, the response from Boston Mayor Thomas Menino is so far unique.
虽说美国50个州中已有47个州报道感冒蔓延,而来自波士顿市长万宁路的报告更引人注目。

“Today [January 9] I am declaring a public health emergency in the city of Boston,” said Menino.
“今年我宣布波士顿进入公共卫生应急状态。”

The city is offering free flu shots at clinics across the city and urging everyone to get vaccinated.
整个波士顿市的诊所都提供免费感冒预防针,并敦促人人都注射疫苗。
