Youngest survivor of Ebola outbreak brings hope to Congo caregivers
最年轻埃博拉幸存者给刚果医护人员带来了希望

Hackathon: 编程马拉松,流传于电脑迷(hacker)当中的新词汇。编程马拉松是一种活动,期间许多程序员聚在一起合作编写程序和应用,时长一般几天到一周不等。

Laurie Segall: Ebola is one of the deadliest diseases in the world. Certain strains can kill 90% of those who catch it. More than 11,000 people have died from the virus and it’s infected more than 28,000.
劳里·西格尔:埃博拉是世界上最致命的疾病之一。某些菌株可以杀死90%的感染者。目前死于埃博拉病毒的人超过1.1万,2.8万多人被感染。

As devastating as this disease is, it’s also inspired one of the most extraordinary achievements in medical history.
尽管这种疾病具有毁灭性,但它也激发了医学史上最非凡的成就之一。

During the largest Ebola epidemic ever, spanning from Liberia to Atlanta, the World Health Organization set up to develop the first vaccine for Ebola.
在从利比里亚扩散到亚特兰大的史上最大规模埃博拉疫情期间,世界卫生组织(World Health Organization)成立相关部门并开发出了第一种埃博拉疫苗。

Coordinating a massive international group of scientists and drug companies, the WHO seemingly managed the impossible.
通过与一个由科学家和制药公司组成的大型国际团队相协作,世界卫生组织(WHO)成功地完成了这看似不可能完成的任务。

Cutting through regulatory red tape, the group collaborated to fast track the vaccine. What usually takes a decade or more, this just took 12 months.
该团队简化管理程序、通力合作,快速追踪疫苗。(研发疫苗)通常需要10年或更长时间,而他们只花了12个月。

We tend to see rapid development from places like Silicon Valley—tach giants holding all-night hackathons to fix a problem.
我们常常看到一些领域,比如硅谷–技术巨头们通过举办通宵编程马拉松来解决问题,从而实现快速发展。

But rarely do we see this type of speed from the medical community. But the hope is that the WHO has provided a blueprint for accelerating drug trials and research.
但是我们很少在医学界看到这种速度。不过,世界卫生组织为加速药物试验和研究提供的蓝图也为我们带来了希望。

So, the medical community can react quickly the next time a killer virus strikes.
因此,当致命病毒再次袭击时,医学界可以迅速做出反应。
