       2020年2月3日,斯里兰卡主流媒体《每日金融报》、《每日镜报》等同时刊登程学源大使署名文章《相信中国,无需恐慌》。斯多名政要及各界友人纷纷来电点赞、支持。全文如下:

  当前,新型冠状病毒感染肺炎疫情仍在继续,中国抗击疫情的巨大努力得到全世界的赞赏与肯定,也得到了全世界朋友的支持与关心。这几天,中国使馆的同事们源源不断地接到许多斯里兰卡朋友的问候,在这个特殊时刻,这让我们倍感温暖与感动。我愿意利用这篇文章就兰卡朋友最关心的几个问题分享我的看法。

  一、中国的疫情怎么样了,中国能控制住吗?

  任何事物都会经历发生、发展到消亡的不同阶段,疫情也不例外。目前看,疫情仍处于发展期,预计将于近期到达峰值,然后逐渐走向终结。此次疫情出现后,在习近平主席的亲自领导和部署下,中国政府实施了最严格的防控措施,数万名医护人员战斗在抗疫一线,31个省启动一级响应,中心疫区城市“封城”,各地严控人员流动,消毒防护措施已普遍适用,检测试剂已研发成功,专门药物正加紧研制。世界卫生组织多次高度肯定中国的防控举措,总干事谭德塞反复强调“Stay there, Stay calm”。相信再过一段时间,疫情将被彻底控制。

  二、新型冠状病毒有那么可怕吗?

  根据目前的流行病学观察,新冠肺炎病毒传染率确实相对较高,但重症率和致死率都低于SARS,该病毒可防、可控、可治!目前斯里兰卡唯一确诊的中国女性患者状态良好,正在接受进一步的隔离治疗。

  三、中国采取了哪些措施防止病毒输入兰卡?

  中国是负责任的大国,在做好自身防控工作的同时,努力阻止疫情向外蔓延。就兰卡而言,下面这些措施将有效防止病毒输入兰卡:(一)中国境内有疑似症状的中国公民将暂时不被允许出境;(二)中国已暂停团队出境游;(三)中国使馆已建议来自湖北等地的中国公民暂时取消或延后访斯,来自其他地区的中国公民抵斯后自我隔离两周;(四)中国使馆努力联系在斯中国游客,并向他们提供指导建议,请其采取防护措施,如有疑似症状及时隔离治疗;(五)中国使馆已要求在斯中国公司员工采取防护措施,如有疑似症状及时隔离治疗。

  战胜恐惧与战胜疫情同样重要!困难面前,请相信中国,无需恐慌。中国有能力控制疫情,也有能力阻止疫情蔓延。在中斯共同采取的强有力的防控措施面前,我们必将共同战胜疫情。需要说明的一点是,应斯里兰卡政府强烈要求,中方已协助安排在华学习、工作的兰卡公民陆续返回斯里兰卡,我们也想善意提醒斯方,严格做好防疫措施,避免发生意外情况。同时,我们也建议兰卡人民根据斯里兰卡政府的指引,维护良好的社会秩序。

  略有遗憾的是,我也听说了最近发生了一些出租车拒载中国人,酒店、餐馆拒绝中国人的情况。我想说,患难见真情。我们理解兰卡人民的担忧,但也希望兰卡人民看到中国负责任的态度和强有力的措施。疫情总有结束一天,希望回头看时,让我们想起的是兰卡人民守望相助的坚定眼神和温暖的双手,正如每次兰卡危难时刻,中国人民所做的那样。我也愿意再次衷心感谢此时此刻关心和支持中国政府、中国人民和中国使馆的所有兰卡朋友,我们不会忘记你们。

  文章英文原文:

  Confidence in China and no need to fear

  At the moment, there still are new cases every day of the novel coronavirus (2019-nCoV) while the great efforts of Chinese authorities have made fighting against the epidemic have won appreciation, recognition as well as kindness and support from the rest of the world.

  In recent days, Embassy staff have received a lot of encouragement from our Sri Lanka friends, which at this very moment makes us feel so warm-hearted and touched. I would like to address some common concerns of our friends with this article.

  1.How is the epidemic going right now? Could China contain it?

  It is known that everything goes through the process of birth, and development before dying out, and it is the same way with the epidemic. New cases of the coronavirus are still increasing now, but it is estimated that the total amount of infected cases will reach the peaking point, then drop and gradually decrease to zero. After the appearance of the epidemic, under the direct leadership and guidance of President Xi Jinping, the Chinese Government imposed the strictest control and prevention measures as tens of thousands of medical personnel have been fighting on the front, 31 provinces have initiated the highest-level response and exit channels to the most infected cities have been temporarily closed. Population migration has been strictly controlled, disinfection and protective measures have been generally applied, diagnostic kit has been developed and effective medicines are being studied now. The World Health Organization (WHO) speaks highly of China’s containing and prevention measures for many times and Director-General Dr. Tedros has reiterated that people should “Stay there, Stay calm”. I believe the epidemic will be fully controlled soon.

  2. Is the coronavirus so terrifying?

  According to epidemiological survey, the novel coronavirus is highly contagious but both severe cases and mortality are relatively fewer than SARS, which proves that the coronavirus can be prevented, contained and infected cases can be medically cured! Right now, the Chinese lady, as the only case diagnosed of the coronavirus in Sri Lanka, has fully recovered.

  3. What China has been dong to protect Sri Lanka from the epidemic?

  As a major responsible country, China has been working very hard to fight against the coronavirus while preventing the spread of it. As for Sri Lanka, the following measures taken by Chinese side might be helpful: The Chinese Government prohibits the traveling of suspicious cases and halts all outbound group travels; The Chinese Embassy to Sri Lanka has advised people from Hubei province to suspend and delay their travels to Sri Lanka, while people from other provinces should quarantine themselves for at least 14 days after arriving in.

  The embassy has been contacting Chinese tourists in Sri Lanka, providing sanitary advice and protective kits, and requesting them to quarantine themselves and take medical treatments once suspicious symptoms show up. The Embassy has also asked Chinese employees based in Sri Lanka to take precautions, and to quarantine themselves and take medical treatments once suspicious symptoms appear.

  To defeat fear is equally important as to defeat the epidemic! Please trust China and do not fear in face of the coronavirus. China has the capacity to contain and prevent the spread of it. We will definitely defeat the virus as we two countries are fighting against it shoulder by shoulder with forceful prevention measures.

  Meanwhile, we would like to confirm that at the firm request of Sri Lanka Government, Chinese authorities have assisted the Government to withdraw Sri Lanka citizens who have been studying and working in China while we would like to kindly remind that Sri Lanka authorities should take all necessary precautions for any unlooked-for situation. At the same time, we hope that Sri Lankan public could follow the guidance of the government and safeguard the social order soundly.

  Worrisomely, I heard that some taxis, hotels and restaurants are refusing Chinese citizens. I believe the true friendship can and must stand the test of difficulties. We understand the concerns of Sri Lanka public but we at the same time hope that they could feel China’s responsible attitude and see the forceful and effective measures taken by China. The epidemic shall be defeated in the end, and at that day when we look back, we hope what we could remember is the strong look in the supportive faces and the warmth in the encouraging hands, just as what Chinese people have done when Sri Lanka went through difficulties. Again, my sincere thanks and best wishes to all Sri Lanka friends of Chinese Government, embassy and Chinese people for your encouragement and support. We will never forget your kindness.
