瘟疫

(wēnyì)

A: In order to prevent an epidemic, our city has prohibited the sale of live poultry within city limits.

为了预防瘟疫我们市区内已经禁止卖活家禽了。

(wéile yùfánɡ wēnyì wǒmen shìqū nèi yǐjīnɡ jìnzhǐ mài huó jiāqín le.)

B: Although this will be a bit inconvenient, this is something we have to protect against. The main causes of epidemic are a poor environment.  

虽说会给生活带来不便, 但不得不防。瘟疫主要是环境不好引起的。

(suīshuō huì ɡěi shēnɡhuó dàilái bùbiàn, dàn bùdé bùfánɡ. wēnyì zhǔyào shì huánjìnɡ bùhǎo yǐnqǐ de.)

A: This is just one way of preventing an epidemic. People also need to have better prevention awareness, such as washing their hands, keeping the area clean and processing their food in a reasonable manner.   

这只是预防瘟疫的一个方面。个人也要有防护意识, 做到勤洗手、保持环境清洁、合理加工食物等。

(zhè zhǐshì yùfánɡ wēnyì de yīɡè fānɡmiàn. ɡèrén yěyào yǒu fánɡhù yìshí, zuòdào qínxǐshǒu, bǎochí huánjìnɡ qīnɡjié, hélǐ jiāɡōnɡ shíwù děnɡ.)
