据美国有线电视新闻网(CNN)报道,世卫组织猴痘项目负责人路易斯(Lewis)5月31日表示,全球30个国家和地区已报告超过550例猴痘确诊病例。路易斯还说,世卫组织目前还不清楚疫情的源头,并呼吁各国利用“机会之窗”阻止疫情恶化。

The World Health Organization is now counting more than 550 monkeypox cases worldwide, the group's technical lead for monkeypox, Rosamund Lewis, said Tuesday on CNN International.
5月31日,世界卫生组织猴痘项目负责人rosamond Lewis告诉CNN,全球已报告超过550例确诊猴痘病例。

"We actually have today a count of over 550 confirmed cases in 30 countries across four of WHO's six regions," Lewis said.
路易斯说:“目前,在世卫组织划分的全球6个地理区域中,有4个区域的30个国家报告了超过550例确诊病例。”

"What we're seeing now is really quite different," she said, given that the outbreak is happening in multiple places at once.
她说:“目前的情况很不寻常”,因为疫情在很多地方同时发生。

"We're seeing cases all appearing in a relatively short period of time. We're seeing that in a few days, in a couple of weeks, we're seeing over 500 cases. This is different. This has not been seen before."
“所有猴痘病例都集中在相对较短的时间内。仅在几天到几周内,就报告了500多个病例。这种情况是前所未有的,不同寻常的。”

In an update over the weekend, WHO said that as of Thursday, it had received reports of 257 confirmed monkeypox cases and about 120 suspected cases in 23 nations where the virus is not endemic.
世卫组织上周末更新的消息显示,截至5月26日,23个非猴痘流行国家共报告257例确诊病例,约120例疑似病例。

Lewis said WHO does not know the source of the outbreak and called on countries to take advantage of the "window of opportunity" to keep cases from unfolding into a greater outbreak.
路易斯说,世卫组织目前还不清楚疫情的源头,并呼吁各国利用“机会之窗”阻止疫情恶化。

The group said in its weekend briefing that the global public health risk level is moderate.
世卫组织在上周末的新闻发布会上表示,猴痘的全球公共卫生风险评估为中等。

However, it added, "The public health risk could become high if this virus exploits the opportunity to establish itself as a human pathogen and spreads to groups at higher risk of severe disease such as young children and immunosuppressed persons."
但世卫组织补充说,“如果猴痘病毒借机确立自己作为人类病原体的地位,并传播到疾病风险高的群体,如幼儿和免疫功能低下的人,公共健康风险可能会变得非常高。
