Et voici le texte : Coronavirus live news: Spain records new highest daily death toll, as Syria reports first Covid-19 death


Patients in the UK dying now were infected around a month ago, weeks before the country started social distancing, an expert has warned.

Professor James Naismith, director of the Rosalind Franklin Institute at the University of Oxford, spoke out after a further 209 people died after testing positive for coronavirus in the UK.

Although this is a lower number than the 260 deaths the previous day, he warned it is too early to draw conclusions, underlining that “daily numbers can be lower (or higher) than expected due to random factors”.

Prof Naismnith said: “I am confident that provided we follow social distancing the increase in deaths will stop and this will be followed by a decrease in the daily numbers.

“It can take up to two weeks from infection to onset of symptoms. For over 80% of people these symptoms are mild, for the much smaller number who develop the most serious illness, intensive care is needed around 10 days later.

“For those who do not recover but die, data from China suggests this takes around another four days. The tragic deaths today will be from people infected roughly a month ago. It is inevitable that there will be more tragedies for families ahead.

“We can reduce the final death toll only by following current Government advice. We must expect and welcome changes in Government advice as science, medicine and social science work together to learn more.”

Ci-dessous votre compréhension orale du fichier "Cosmetic surgery"


Maria, jeune fille de 19 ans, a récemment subi une opération de chirurgie esthétique pour retirer une grosseur sur son nez.Elle a été interviewée par Jennifer.

Jennifer demande tout d'abord pourquoi Maria a subi cette intervention.

Maria se considéré comme jolie fille, mais pensait que si elle retirait cette grosseur a son nez elle serait alors parfaite.

Elle ajoute qu'en Californie il y a beaucoup de pression pour ĂŞtre parfaite physiquement.

Jennifer demande si Maria a décide par elle même ou si quelqu'un le lui avait suggéré.

Maria dit que ses amis la prennent pour une folle pour avoir subi cette opération mais elle voulait absolument faire refaire son nez. Elle s'est d'ailleurs beaucoup renseignée sur le sujet au préalable avant de choisir de subir une rhinoplastie.

Elle a appris que l'intervention ne se serait pas très douloureuse et ne prendrait qu'une semaine a cicatriser.

Jennifer demande comment les parents de Maria ont pris le fait que leur fille souhaite subir une rhinoplastie.

Maria raconte que ces parents n'en étaient pas très heureux de ce choix car selon la jeune fille ios pensaient qui l'avaient faite telle qu'elle était et qu'elle était parfaite ainsi.

Maria pense aussi qu'ils étaient un peu déçu mais ils savaient que leur fille était assez grande pour prendre ses propres décisions et on accepté leur fille après ce qu'elle a fait.

Jennifer demande quelle différence l’opération a fait ressentir a Maria par rapport à elle même. Maria dit qu'elle est heureuse de l'avoir faite et qu'elle se sent mieux par rapport à elle.

Jennifer demande si une personne qui ne sent pas bien par rapport a son physique doit subir une opération de chirurgie esthétique.

Maria pense que cet acte ne doit pas être pris a la légère et donc pas une décision prise à la va-vite. Elle voulait subir une rhinoplastie depuis ses 16 ans et a voulu attendre d'avoir fini de grandir pour éviter de faire une erreur. De plus elle avait pensé toute sa vie à refaire son nez.

On doit bien y penser car quand on subi un changement physique, il difficile à réparer. On ne peut pas revenir en arrière après ce type d'intervention.

Maria prend en exemple Michael Jackson qui s’était fait refaire plusieurs fois le nez, la jeune fille ajoutant que cela serait difficile à réparer. Jennifer ajoute qu'il faisait peur.

And here is the script

- compare it with your summary in French and see how well you have understood the document.

Maria, who is 19, recently had a nose operation to remove a bump. She is being interviewed by Jennifer.

Jennifer : - Why did you decide to have cosmetic surgery?

Maria : - I'm actually a pretty girl, so I thought that if I got my nose done then I would be perfect. And there's so much pressure living in California to look perfect, that I just, I wanted to have the whole complete package, you know?

Jennifer : - Did you just decide to do it on your own or did someone suggest it to you?

Maria : - Well, actually my friends think I'm crazy that I did it, but I actually really wanted to do it because I saw all kinds of articles in different magazines and I read a bunch of information on it before I chose to do it. And it just didn't seem like it would be so bad, it wouldn't hurt so much, it only takes like a week to really heal.

Jennifer : - What did your parents think about you getting the nose surgery?

Maria : - My parents weren't very happy about it because you know they made me the way I am and they think I'm perfect as I am, so I think they were a little disappointed. But, you know, they accept me for what I've done and I’m old enough to make my own decisions now.

Jennifer : - What difference did the surgery make in how you feel about yourself?

Maria : - I feel great about myself now and I'm happy that I did it…

Jennifer : - Do you think anyone who doesn't like something about the way they look should have surgery?

Maria : - Well I think it's something you should take seriously. It's not like a quick snap decision. I've wanted to have this done ever since I was 16, but I wanted to wait until I was finished growing so I didn't make any mistakes. And I've thought about it my whole life. You know, I just think that you should put a lot of thought into it because once you get a change, a physical change, it's hard to fix it. I mean, look at Michael Jackson. He just kept cutting at his nose and cutting at his nose and now he'll never be able to get it back and he looks really scary.
