句子解析:

第一句:

Cramped conditions in some factories and in low-paid workers’ homes, spurred by the desire for cheaply produced food, may have driven infection rates in the sector, according to Dr David Nabarro, a World Health Organization special envoy on Covid-19.

参考译文:世卫组织新冠疫情特使大卫·纳巴罗博士表示,受到对廉价加工食品的欲望的刺激,一些工厂和低薪工人家庭的拥挤状况可能导致了该行业感染率的上升。

第二句:

There is no suggestion of social distancing rules being broken,but factories by their nature involve large numbers of workers under one roof.

参考译文:没有迹象表明保持社交距离的规则被破坏,但工厂的本质属性就包括让大量工人聚集在一个屋檐下。

思考题解析:

It can be inferred from the passage that ______

从而文中可以得知:

(A) social distancing rules may not be proposed.

社交距离的个规则没有被提出来。

suggestion是迹象,表明的意思!

所以是社交距离的规则没有被打破,不是没有被提议!所以错!

(B) the size of workers may drive up infection rates.

工人的数量可能会增加感染率!

正确!对于第一句拥挤的住宿和第二句工人的数量的替换!

同时drive up就是推升的意思!

(C) WHO may oppose the cheaply produced food

WHO可能反对廉价的加工食品。

这个没有提及。排除!

(D) food factories may prefer to hire more workers.

食品工厂可能偏好雇佣更多的工人。

没有提及这个比较!排除!

文章来源背景和来源:

UK's cheap food could fuel Covid-19 spread, says WHO envoy

世卫组织特使表示,英国的廉价食品可能助长新冠病毒的传播

Source: https://www.theguardian.com/world/2020/aug/21/uk-cheap-food-could-fuel-covid-19-spread-says-who-envoy

背景:在新冠疫情的早期,英国并未像美国一样出现肉类或食品加工厂的聚焦性爆发。但卫报的一位分析师指出,目前英国的食品加工厂也开始越来越频繁地出现聚集性的疫情爆发,并迅速地向更广泛的民众中间传播。目前并没有证据表明这些聚集性感染是由于工人或管理者破坏社交隔离的规则,但这些食品厂本身高密度的工作环境和低收入移民工人拥挤的居住条件就非常适宜病毒传播。同时,低收入也迫使工人们不得不回到车间工作。究其源头,英国市场对廉价加工食品的需求催生了众多这样的食品工厂。廉价食品的生活文化建立在极低的成本水平(包括厂房和人力)之上。但其实,这一切另有代价。
