Anytime that you have large groups of people congregating and in enclosed spacesyou know it always offers an opportunity for more efficient I guess sharing of germs.
每当你在一个有一大群人聚集的封闭的空间里,这种空间总能更快速有效的传播细菌。

Volunteers disinfect equipment after each use at these pre Super Bowl events so the flu doesn’t spread.
志愿者每次都在这些超级杯预赛的活动后给设备消毒,这样流感就不会传播。

They’ve been wiping everything down, sanitizing it before the kids use it.
他们把所有东西都擦干净了,并且在孩子们用之前给消了毒。

But big events are not the only things that can increase the risk for spreading a virus.
但是,并不是只有重大赛事能够增加传播病毒的风险,

Even going to someone’s house to watch the game on TV,you know you’re gathering with peopleand we know that people when they’re coughing and sneezing.There’s a recent study showing even just breathing you could be transmitting viruses.
即使你去别人家看电视游戏,聚会,当他们在咳嗽,打喷嚏。最近的一项研究表明,即使只是呼吸,你也可能传播病毒。

Dr. Jeff Kwong was the lead author of a new study that shows that respiratory viruses,especially influenza,can affect the heart.

What we showed was that you’re six times more likely to have a heart attackduring the week after being tested and testing positive for influenza infection.
我们得出的结论是,在接受流感病毒并在检测呈阳性后人们在一周内心脏病发病的可能性要高出六倍。

Back in Minnesota,public health officials are telling people attending the football gameto try to avoid close contact with sick people,to wash their hands often,avoid touching their eyes and noses.
回到明尼苏达州,卫生部门工作人员叮嘱参加足球比赛的人尽量避免与病人密切接触,经常洗手,避免接触眼睛和鼻子。

And if they haven’t yet gotten their flu shot to get it,because the flu season is not yet over.
流感季节还没有结束,还没有注射流感疫苗的人就抓紧注射。
