How are you doing?
Today's Melbourne weather is now 16 degrees Celsius, cloudy and a bit chilly.
What is your area like?
Today's blog is from Atsu san's video, who is a YouTuber living in Melbourne, Australia.
Today's topic is Introducing English words that you often hear in Corona virus news.
How was it?
I wrote some out.
コロナ = Coronavirus, COVID 19
感染する = Infected, contracted
消毒する＝ disinfect, sanitize
持病＝underlying health conditions
マスク＝ surgical mask
自粛要請＝ a request of self imposed isolation
Those are the words you often hear in Australia too.
I’m glad that after listening to that video and writing this blog, I was able to match the sounds of the words
and their spelling.
Take care of yourself and have a good weekend everyone.
