【看英文中國郵報學英文】因武漢肺炎疫情,年度盛事大甲媽祖遶境活動確定延期。

Dajia Matsu Pilgrimage, one of the most significant religious events in Taiwan, will be postponed because of the coronavirus outbreak, the organizer said a Thursday. 

鎮瀾宮董事長顏清標今(27)上午召開記者會表示,有上香跟媽祖稟報,等疫情撲滅後,再決定起駕日期;鎮瀾宮尊重防疫專業,全力配合政府防疫,絕無一意孤行。

The temple has reported to Matzu — the goddess of the sea — about the postponement of the pilgrimage,  Jenn Lann Temple (鎮瀾宮) chairman Yen Ching-piao (顏清標) said. Furthermore, the organizers have decided to put the festival off until the outbreak is contained, adding that the temple takes into experts’ advice and is always cooperating with the government, Yen said.

顏清標昨天下午也和中央疫情指揮中心指揮官陳時中通電話,顏清標表示,雖然他有10多年的遶境經驗,但並非醫療、防疫專家,陳時中是防疫專家,他向陳時中請益防疫工作。

Before making the decision, Yen has asked for advice from Chen Shih-chung (陳時中), chief commander of the Central Epidemic Command Center (CECC, 中央流行疫情指揮中心) in a phone call.

今天鎮瀾宮發出公告,宣布百年遶境進香活動延期,全力配合政府防疫工作,顏清標更在臉書直播,強調安全最重要,農曆9月9日之前都可以辦。

According to a Facebook live stream video from the temple, Yen stressed that safety is a top priority and the pilgrimage can be delayed until the ninth day of the ninth lunar month, which falls on Oct. 25.
