持续增高的失业率和急速下滑的经济让美国民众担忧潜在的社会风险。

零售店铺关闭,小型企业破产,让大批工人失去收入,需要政府援助维持生计。

“每次都说‘现在还不是时候......’现在,我们的医疗系统陷入了混乱,数百万人失业,食物也不安全。我们应对疫情糟糕透顶,但却又一次救了富人群体。”4月3日,美国驻华大使在使馆官网、官方微博、微信公众号上发布中英文公开信《向前同行》,感谢中国帮助。全文如下:

经济学家预测:美国经济将经历严重衰退

布兰斯塔德大使Moving Forward TogetherLast week, President Trump and President Xi had a very good, productive phone conversation regarding the global COVID-19 pandemic.  And, over the weekend, I spoke with Vice Foreign Minister Zheng Zeguang about our countries’ joint efforts to combat COVID-19.  I underscored that now is the time to look forward, and relayed my appreciation for Chinese efforts to assist our government in the export of needed medical supplies to the United States.The U.S. Embassy has already been hard at work bringing U.S. and Chinese companies together to meet the growing immediate needs for critical personal protective equipment in the United States.  And we are working closely with Chinese government officials to facilitate the shipment of those supplies out of China.  No one country can fight this battle alone, and I am confident that our two countries will continue to find ways to jointly cooperate to combat this common enemy that threatens the lives of all of us.As the entire U.S. Mission to China continues our support and concern for our Chinese colleagues who work for Embassy Beijing and our five Consulates, we now look homeward with concern for the health and safety of our own families, friends, and loved ones back in the United States.  The work we are all doing is crucial, and I encourage everyone to continue your valiant efforts to fight this pandemic.Moving forward together, I know that we will get through these difficult times.Ambassador Branstad

新冠肺炎疫情在美国暴发后,多个行业陷入停滞,就业危机加剧。《华盛顿邮报》报道称,美国有6万多家商店陆续关门,近100万名零售员工暂时下岗。

琼斯对2万亿美元的经济刺激计划不抱太大希望:“我并不认为这项计划会带来多少好处。在我看来,它来得太迟了。”
