“And seeing platforms like Facebook and YouTube struggle to contain the spread of videos like “Plandemic” makes me worry that when the time comes to persuade billions of people to take a critical coronavirus vaccine, our public health officials and social media companies will be outgunned by a well-oiled anti-vaccine movement that has already polluted the air with misinformation and conspiracy theories.”

“看到像脸书和YouTube这样的平台艰难地阻止《人为大流行》这样的视频传播让我担心,到了要劝说数以亿计的人接种关键的新冠病毒疫苗之时,我们的公共卫生官员和社交媒体公司会不敌高效运转的反疫苗运动,后者已经用假消息和阴谋论败坏了风气。”(美国《纽约时报》网站)

——《纽约时报》科学专栏作家凯文·鲁斯日前撰文表达了自己的担忧。一部名为《人为大流行》的纪录片充斥着有关新冠肺炎的假消息和阴谋论,却在脸书和YouTube上被疯狂转载,网络上经常见到对疫苗的误解和诋毁。当下的反疫苗运动不禁让人担心,即使疫苗研制成功,美国也会有很多人不愿意接种。

“We built the Panama Canal and we put a man on the moon. And now we can’t get a swab or a face mask or a gown and we have no real chain of command. And we have two Americas, a Republican one and a Democratic one, and they won’t collaborate. We are not leading in the pandemic response, we are trailing other countries by a long shot. This is a crippling blow to America’s prestige around the world.”

“我们建巴拿马运河,送人上月球。而现在我们弄不到棉签、口罩或是防护服,我们没有像样的指挥系统。我们有两个美国,一个共和党的和一个民主党的,他们不肯合作。我们并没有领导疫情响应,我们远远地跟在他国后面。这是对美国全球声誉的沉重打击。”(美国《政治报》网站)
