当冠状病毒在武汉全面爆发时,赫敏-迪基的父母着急地做好一切工作,让这个8岁的美国小姑娘离开中国,登上返回美国的撤离航班。然而意想不到的是,迁居美国半年后,她再次被病毒包围了。这一次,小姑娘没有逃过病毒的魔掌,不单单她感染了,她的父亲和祖父母也感染了。

现居在田纳西州孟菲斯附近,金发碧眼的赫敏2012年出生在中国中部,当时她的美国父母正在那里当老师。赫敏在中国度过了她的大部分童年时光,直到今年,新冠病毒在武汉爆发,她成了美国政府从武汉撤离的美国公民中的一员。
“当我们选择离开时,我们想的是’要把她送到一个安全的地方‘,“赫敏的父亲詹姆斯-迪基说。但是回到美国后,他却发现情况似乎更糟糕了,”...病毒无法控制地持续恶化,我只能一直瞠目结舌地看着。“

上周被检测出COVID-19阳性后,赫敏被隔离了。对于她的父母来说,这个结果让人十分沮丧又无奈。虽然他们一直采取社交疏远的措施,但似乎还是避无可避。“我们只是希望她的情况不要太糟糕,”赫敏的母亲普莉希拉-迪基说。在赫敏被检测出感染冠状病毒的当天,包括孟菲斯及其郊区在内的谢尔比县报告了235个新病例。这个人口不到100万的地区已经有超过2.36万例冠状病毒报告,比2月初赫敏撤离时,拥有1100万人口的武汉市累积病例的两倍还多。

这位以《哈利波特》中著名角色命名的小姑娘回到美国后,每个月有一半的时间和居住在俄亥俄州的母亲居住在一起,另一半时间则和位于田纳西州的父亲及祖父母居住在一起。在那里,赫敏的两位祖父母也感染了COVID-19,她的祖父上周被病毒缠身,已经住进了医院。与此同时,曾和赫敏一起玩耍、荡秋千的表妹的母亲最近也感染了冠状病毒。

万幸的是,赫敏的症状并不严重。“她没有发烧,没有昏昏欲睡...就好像只是得了感冒,“她的父亲说,他怀疑赫敏是被家里的人感染了——他自己也被确诊了新冠肺炎。而在几百英里外的俄亥俄州,远离女儿的迪基女士只能在慌乱中决定等待赫敏的隔离期结束。她说,提前接回女儿,很可能感染自己和自己的父母,以及她担心自己正在担任护士助理的养老院的病人。最新的科学研究结果安慰了这对父母,因为研究表明儿童感染冠状病毒后死亡风险较低。即便如此,赫敏的母亲表示,赫敏被隔离的时间太长了,这已经是她今年第三次被隔离。

When the coronavirus exploded in Wuhan earlier this year, Hermione Dickey’s parents worked frantically to get the 8-year-old American out of the central Chinese city and onto a U.S. evacuation flight. Six months after relocating to the U.S., she is again surrounded by the virus. This time the young girl has it. So does her father. And her grandparents. Now staying near Memphis, Tenn., the blond-haired, blue-eyed Hermione was born in central China in 2012 when her American parents were working there as teachers. Hermione spent most of her childhood in China until this year, when she became a public face of the U.S. government’s evacuation of its citizens from Wuhan, which was then the coronavirus’ locked-down epicenter. “When we evacuated, we thought, ‘We’re getting her to safety,’” said James Dickey, Hermione’s father. But in the U.S., he said, the “inability to control the virus made it exponentially worse. I’ve just been watching with a jaw dropped.”

After testing positive for Covid-19 last week, Hermione was put under quarantine—for the third time this year—as western Tennessee emerges as a fresh hotbed of the fast-spreading virus. For her parents, who are estranged but cooperate for their daughter’s well-being, the diagnosis has sparked frustration and helplessness at their efforts to protect Hermione. “I’m just hoping she doesn’t get a real bad case of it,” said her mother, Priscilla Dickey. Shelby County, which includes Memphis and its suburbs, reported 235 new cases on the day Hermione was tested. The county, with a population of less than a million people, now has more than 23,600 coronavirus cases—more than twice as many as Wuhan, a city of 11 million people, had accumulated by the time Hermione was evacuated in early February.

Hermione, who was named for the Harry Potter character, spends half of every month with Ms. Dickey in Ohio and the other half 650 miles away with Mr. Dickey’s family in the Memphis suburbs. There, Hermione’s two paternal grandparents have also been infected with Covid-19; her grandfather, winded by the virus last week, has checked into a hospital. Hermione, meantime, has spent the summer swinging and trampolining with her cousins, whose mother also recently tested positive. For now, Hermione says she feels “just fine” and her parents are reporting only sniffles and sneezes. They have taken comfort from scientific research that suggests children are at a lower risk of death, though infections among children are also rising, confounding doctors.  source

一些在美华人说“中国打上半场,美国打下半场,在美华人最惨,要打全场”,其实真正最惨的是被撤侨回美的在中国的美国人(简称“在中美人”),他们是“全场被打”

都是命啊。逃过了疫情初期却栽在了家乡。小姑娘家人心里肯定一万头神兽奔腾吧。愿小姑娘早日康复吧。
