1. 최순실 1심 선고 20년

Choi Soon-sil sentenced to 20 years in prison

기사요약: 국정농단 주범으로 지목된 최순실씨에 대해 법원이 1심에서 20년형과 180억원의 벌금을 선고했다. 최 측은 형이 가혹하다며 항소하겠다고 밝혔다.

[1] Choi Soon-sil, former President Park Geun-hye’s confidante accused of meddling in state affairs, was sentenced to 20 years in prison Tuesday.

2. 평창올림픽 노로바이러스 격리

[PyeongChang 2018] Quarantined Olympic staff cry foul

기사요약: 평창 올림픽 개회 전에 지원 봉사자들 수십 명이 노로바이러스 식중독에 집단 감염됐다. 감염된 지원 봉사자들은 격리됐지만 격리과정도 허술할 뿐만 아니라 퇴소요청도 거절당한 채 별다른 조치 없이 방치되고 있다고 한다.

[1] Dozens of Olympic staff who are locked up at a remote youth training facility due to norovirus infection have blamed the organizers for the spread of the sickness in Gangwon Province, accusing them of “irresponsible action.”

*lock up 가두다 잠그다

*remote 외딴 외진

[2] Five support staff interviewed by The Korea Herald at the facility in PyeongChang, Gangwon Province, said they had “heard from no one when they should get back to work or be released from quarantine.”

They described lax quarantine procedures, with little to stop people coming and going from the facility.

*quarantine 격리

*lax 느슨한 해이한

*little 거의 없다



[3] Some of the segregated staff did not show any sign of sickness, but were repeatedly told to wait until they test negative for infection, according to the workers. Norovirus can infect some people without symptoms.

*segregate 분리하다 격리하다

*test negative 음성반응을 보이다

*symptom 증상
