文字稿

An historic clean up at the pyramids. For millennia, this world wonder has wowed visitors. But coronavirus killed off Egypt’s tourism and with it, the livelihoods of millions. Like Ashraf – unable to feed his family, he kept his favourite camel, but had to sell two others.

这是对金字塔遗址进行的一次具有历史意义的清理工作。数千年来,这个世界奇观让游客们叹为观止。但新冠肺炎病毒扼杀了埃及的旅游业,也随之夺走了数百万人的生计。像阿什拉夫这样,因为无法养活家人,他只留下了最钟爱的一头载客骆驼,而不得不卖掉另外两头骆驼。

“It has been tough on everyone,” he says. “I have no money. A camel’s food alone costs six dollars a day.”

他说:“旅游业的停滞对每个人来说都很艰难。我没有钱。单是一只骆驼的食物一天就要六美元。”

The ancient attractions are now reopening, but they’re empty except for the occasional local visitor. It’s a blow after tourism had just recovered from years of turmoil.

这些古老的景点正逐步重新开放,但除了零星的当地游客前来参观以外,这些景点空无一人。对刚从多年的动荡中恢复过来的埃及旅游业来说,这是一记重创

Shahenda Adel, tour guide
We had to cancel flights, hotels, and that includes everyone who works in the hotel. The company itself and people behind desks – we all lost our jobs. And then you have drivers, you have cars, restaurants – all of these things are down.

莎亨达·阿戴尔     导游
“我们不得不取消订好的航班和酒店,这涉及到了在酒店工作的所有人。公司没了生意,员工丢了工作。除此之外,司机、汽车、餐馆也都没了生意。”
