Good morning everyone

When you were at the office yesterday, the gunman killed 29 people in Korat province with a war weapon. Make the leader of Government and army, police apologize to people. In this incident, the journalists were accused by media experts for incorrectly describing the process that made the gunman a hero and could be a prototype for future followers. That is the psychological motivation for further incidents in the future.

Many thanks to Google Translate and G Grammarly as ever.

WHO Concerned Over New Coronavirus Cases Outside China

World Health Organization Concerned Over New Coronavirus Cases Outside China
 

Many people across China returned to work on Monday. They were coming back after the government extended the Lunar New Year holiday in an effort to stop the spread of the new coronavirus.

However, the World Health Organization, WHO, said it is concerned about the spread of the virus among people who have not traveled to China.

Deaths from the international epidemic rose to 908. Ninety-seven of those deaths were reported on Sunday. It was the largest increase in a single day since the outbreak began in the Chinese city of Wuhan in December. As of Monday, two of the deaths had taken place outside of mainland China.

In another case of infections outside of China, the Diamond Princess cruise ship with 3,700 passengers and crew remained quarantined in the Japanese port of Yokohama. The ship has 135 confirmed cases.

In Britain, the government said on Monday that the number of confirmed coronavirus cases there had increased to eight. Officials declared the virus a serious threat. The action gives the government powers to quarantine people suspected of being infected.

Across mainland China, 3,062 new cases were confirmed on Sunday. The total number of cases is now more than 40,100, China’s National Health Commission said.

Wu Fan is the vice-dean of Shanghai Fudan University Medical school. Wu said there was hope the spread might soon begin to drop off.

However, the chief of the World Health Organization said there had been “concerning” examples of people who were infected and had not been to China.

This may mean there is “more widespread transmission in other countries,” he said.

A team of WHO experts has arrived in Beijing to help investigate the outbreak. Reuters news agency estimates that the virus has spread to at least 27 countries and territories. More than 330 people outside of mainland China have been infected including two deaths, one in Hong Kong and another in the Philippines, Reuters reported.

The outbreak of the new coronavirus is now deadlier than the Severe Acute Respiratory Syndrome (SARS) outbreak in 2002 and 2003.

China’s Communist Party leaders have ordered people to stay home, canceled flights and closed factories and schools.

Ten extra days were added to the Lunar New Year holiday. But even on Monday, many offices remained closed.

Wuhan is in Hubei province. The area of 60 million people has been hardest hit by the outbreak. Travel there is mostly banned with train stations and airports closed and roads blocked.

Transcript

Note: This is not a word for word transcript

Neil
Hello and welcome to 6 Minute English. I'm Neil and joining me today is Dan who is a producer at BBC Learning English – that's his job.

Dan
Hi everyone… Yes that is my job, obviously – why are we discussing that now, Neil?

Neil
Well you haven't always been a producer at BBC Learning English, have you?

Dan
No… I used to be a teacher.

Neil
And before that? Way back – your first ever job?

Dan
Ah, I had a paper round when I was 14. A paper round is a job – the job of delivering newspapers to people's homes. It's often done by teenagers.

Neil
14 seems very young to be at work. And that's the topic of this 6 Minute English: Should schoolchildren have jobs? It seems fewer and fewer are these days, according to the statistics. We'll give you 6 job-related words and expressions – and, of course, our quiz question. You Ready?

Dan
You bet!

Neil
What is the youngest age at which children are allowed to work in the UK?  

a) 12

b) 13

c) 14

Dan
Well, I'm going to say 14 just because that's how old I was and it seems a long time ago!

Neil
We'll find out at the end of the programme.  Let's start by hearing some British teenagers talking about their Saturday jobs.

Dan
A Saturday job is the name we give to part-time work that teenagers do for extra money. As the name suggests, these jobs often take place on Saturdays – but not always.

Neil
That's right -  'Saturday job' is general term we use to describe part-time work done by teenagers. The work might take place on Sundays or any day of the week, in fact! Let's hear from these British children about their Saturday jobs.

Insert Vox
We have to face all the stuff on the shelves and make it look organised and show customers where products are if they need to know.

On the average week I work nine hours, so two hours for two school nights and then I work four hours on a Saturday and two hours on a Sunday. And then in the school holidays I can work more.

Dan
The first kid said the work involves making the shelves look organised. Shop work is a very typical Saturday job.

Neil
Oh yes, I spent many a weekend and evening stacking shelves! The second teenager's Saturday job takes place Saturdays, Sundays and evenings. As we said – A Saturday job's not just for Saturdays.

Dan
A Saturday job is seen almost as a rite of passage in the UK. A rite of passage is the name we give to events or ceremonies that form an important stage in a person's life.

Neil
That's right – like graduating from school, or having children. But according to the latest statistics in the UK, that is all changing. Listen to this BBC report.

Insert BBC reporter
In order to work, they need a permit from the local authority and our data shows the number being issued has fallen from nearly 30,000 permits in 2012 to just 23,000 in 2016. Employers frequently bemoan the lack of work experience young people have. But teenagers are also facing pressure not to take up part-time jobs and to concentrate on their studies instead.

Dan
So, it seems that fewer teenagers are taking Saturday jobs. But there's a conflict here.

Neil
Yes, on the one hand, employers bemoan the lack of work experience young people have. Bemoan, meaning complain about. It's a rather formal word.

Dan
But on the other hand, teenagers are facing pressure not to take part-time jobs and to concentrate on their studies. Some people think working could be detrimental to a schoolchild's academic progress.

Neil
Detrimental - which means causing harm. It's a tricky one, isn't it? I think my Saturdays spend stacking shelves and serving fish 'n' chips taught me valuable lessons about working with adults and also managing my money. I don't think it was detrimental to my education.

Dan
Well, you managed to get a job at BBC Learning English! As for me, my paper round taught me the value of hard work. It didn't hinder me. Hinder means to stop someone or something from making progress.

Neil
Well let's not talk too much in case we hinder our students… On to the answer to our quiz question. I asked this: What is the youngest age at which children are allowed to work in the UK? 

a) 12

b) 13

c) 14

Dan
I said c) 14.

Neil
And I'm afraid you are wrong. You are allowed to work from the age of 13 in the UK. Exceptions to this rule include TV, theatre and modelling.

Dan
Oh well – I guess I should have spent more time at school.

Neil
Shall we have a recap of the vocabulary?

Dan
Did you have a paper round as a kid, Neil?

Neil
No I didn't, but I did help my best friend James deliver newspapers - in return for a pound. Big money back in the 80s!

Dan
Did you supplement your earnings with a Saturday job?

Neil
I did. I had a Saturday job in a supermarket and also in a fish 'n' chip shop – but it wasn't always on a Saturday. Free chips! Dan is that a wedding ring on your finger?

Dan
Yes it is. Marriage is a rite of passage in many cultures. It is an important stage in a person's life – talking of which, are those your kids on your screensaver?

Neil
Yep – having children is another example of a rite of passage. See how tired I look!

Dan
Do not bemoan your lack of sleep! Bemoan's a quite formal way of saying 'complain about'.

Neil
I think it's OK to bemoan my lack of sleep – it can have a detrimental effect on my health.

Dan
Detrimental – meaning harmful. As long as your tiredness doesn't hinder your work on 6 Minute English

Neil
Well, I'd never let anything hinder – meaning stop from making progress – 6 Minute English.

Dan
I admire your dedication! Goodbye!

Neil
See ya!

Lastly, the King has suggested that the government provide assistance to the affected people and officials in any way that it can as soon as possible.
