一位美国经济学教授说,这种新型冠状病毒引起的疾病将在第一季度对中国经济产生一些负面影响,但在今年余下的时间里,情况将恢复正常。


芝加哥,2月13日(新华)——新型冠状病毒covid19引起的疾病对中国经济的影响将是有限的,芝加哥伊利诺斯州理工学院斯图亚特商学院的经济学教授Khairy Tourk说。


“在第一季度,肯定会有一些负面影响,但在今年余下的时间里,事情会恢复正常,”托克在最近的一次采访中告诉新华社。


世界卫生组织赞扬中国的快速反应。事实上,中国实现了几乎实时的反应,”图尔克驳斥了中国对病毒爆发反应迟缓的谣言。


Tourk将COVID-19的致死率与寨卡病毒和埃博拉病毒等其他流行病的致死率进行了比较,他说,COVID-19的致死率远远低于其他流行病。他说:“总而言之,人们对这种流行病的负面影响夸大得太多了。”


“中国经济的一个积极方面是,它已经发展了数字经济。所以学生在网上学习相对比较容易……听到一些中国法院在网上进行审判,我感到很惊讶。”


“中国人很有创造力,他们已经采取了很多措施来减少疾病传播的影响……国家在处理危机方面正朝着正确的方向前进。


图尔克还呼吁全世界努力抗击这种疾病。他说:“没有什么比处理生死问题的紧急情况更能体现国家间的合作。”


“一个健康的中国意味着一个健康的世界经济,”图尔克补充说。

 

A U.S. professor of economics said the disease caused by the novel coronavirus will have some negative impact on the Chinese economy in the first quarter, but things will go back to normal in the rest of the year.

 

CHICAGO, Feb. 13 (Xinhua) -- The effect of the disease caused by the novel coronavirus, known as COVID-19, on the Chinese economy will be limited, said Khairy Tourk, a professor of economics with the Stuart School of Business of the Illinois Institute of Technology in Chicago.

 

"In the first quarter, there's definitely going to be some negative impact, but in the rest of the year, things would go back to normal," Tourk told Xinhua in a recent interview.

 

"The World Health Organization commended China for its quick response. As a matter of fact, China achieved almost real time response," Tourk refuted the rumor of China being late in responding the virus outbreak.

 

Tourk compared the fatality of COVID-19 with other epidemics such as Zika and Ebola, saying that it's much lower than other epidemics. "So all in all, there has been too much exaggeration of the negative effects of this epidemic," he said.

 

"One positive thing about the Chinese economy is that it has already developed digital economy. So it's relatively easy for students to study online ... I was surprised to hear that some of Chinese courts are conducting trials online," Tourk said.

 

"Chinese people are very inventive and they have taken so many steps to lessen the effect of spread of the disease ... The country is moving in the right direction as dealing with its crisis," he said.

 

Tourk also called for worldwide efforts to fight the disease. "Nothing spares cooperation among nations like emergencies that deal with questions of life and death," he said.

 

"A healthy China means a healthy world economy," Tourk added.
