Diabetes increase warning 糖尿病病例激增引起警告

UK stamps celebrate Queen at 90 英皇家邮政发行女王90岁生日纪念邮票

文字稿

The World Health Organisation says there's been a fourfold increase in diabetes in the past four decades. Worldwide nearly one-in-11 adults now has the disease. In one of the largest studies to date, it's been found that poor and middle income countries had seen the steepest rise in cases. That's prompted a warning that diabetes has reached levels that could bankrupt some health systems.

世界卫生组织说,近四十年来,糖尿病病例数量增加了四倍。全球范围内每11个成人中就有近一人患病。一项迄今规模最大的研究发现,低、中收入国家见证了糖尿病病例最急剧的增长。这引起了如下警告:激增的糖尿病病例已严重到可能会导致部分卫生系统破产。

Here he is, posing for his very first stamp… The Royal Mail has also produced a further six stamps to mark the birthday.
