Yesterday was World AIDS Day. An international event that goes back to 1988. It`s held every year on December 1. And it`s aimed to raise awareness about AIDS, a quiet immune deficiency syndrome, an HIV, human immunodeficiency virus, which causes AIDS.

昨天是世界艾滋病日,开始于1988年的国际性纪念日。每年的十二月一日为国际艾滋病日,旨在提高对艾滋病的关注。艾滋病是一种免疫系统疾病,称为HIV,人体免疫缺陷病毒导致艾滋病的发生。

Organizers of World AIDS Day estimate that 34 million people worldwide are living with HIV and that 35 million people have died from it.

世界艾滋病日的组织者估计全球有3400万人携带HIV病毒,有3500万人死于艾滋病。

AZUZ: World AIDS day raises money to fight the disease and to educate people about it. Medical treatments have come a long way since the 1980s, allowing people to survive indefinitely with HIV, still it hasn`t gone away, and symbolic red ribbons are worn as reminders and in remembrance of AIDS victims.

世界艾滋病日会筹集资金用于研究艾滋病病毒并教育人们如何正确对待艾滋病。自20世纪80年代医学研究就已经开始了长期研究道路,尝试各种帮助人类 摆脱艾滋病的方法,但是目前仍没有有效的解决办法,艾滋病患者仍然不断死去,人们采用红丝带作为艾滋病日的象征来纪念艾滋病去世患者。

UNIDENTIFIED FEMALE: Just the facts: on April 26, 1986, there was an explosion at the Chernobyl nuclear power station in what was then the Soviet Union. About 30 people were killed in the blast, and the nuclear radiation spread across borders. Hundreds of thousands had to be evacuated, forests and farms were contaminated. People and animals became sick or contracted cancer in the years that followed. It was the worst disaster in the history of nuclear power.

在1986年4月26号,在当时苏联切尔诺贝利核电站发生爆炸,大约有30人在爆炸中丧生,核辐射在周围广泛散播。附近数十万名居民需要撤离,森林田地都受到了污染。在随后的纪念里人类和东部都患有不同程度的疾病或癌症。这是历史上最严重的一次核泄漏事件。

AZUZ: A nearby town in what is now part of Ukraine was abandoned. Just under 50,000 people had to evacuate their homes. 30 years later, it`s a ghost town, with rotting Soviet-era houses, factories, parks and gyms.

现属于乌克兰的一个城镇被废弃。不到50000人的村民都需要撤离家园。受核泄漏影响,30年后这里成为里一座“鬼城”,仍保留着当时苏联时代的房屋,工厂,公园和体育馆。

There`s another place like it. Fukushima, Japan where an earthquake and tsunami in 2011 caused the world second worst nuclear disaster. It left a more modern town completely empty, but quick visits are giving glimpses of the past.

还有一个类似的地方,就是日本的福岛。在2011年日本大地震的时候导致核泄漏,成为世界上第二大核泄漏事件。核泄漏留给当地比较现代比较完整的城镇规模,但是现代与过去的对比影像也向世人显示了当时的历史。
