    《中英對照讀新聞》Big condoms partly to blame for Thai teen STI spike: ministry 衛生部:泰國青少年性病激增,有一部分要怪大保險套

    Thai health officials Thursday said teenagers who are too embarrassed to choose condoms that fit are partly to blame for a recent spike in sexually transmitted infections (STIs) among their peers.

    泰國衛生部官員週四說,最近泰國青少年性病激增,部分要怪青少年太不好意思挑選合用的保險套。

    In a statement ahead of Valentine’s Day, the kingdom’s Ministry of Public Health warned that STIs among 10-19 year olds had increased almost five times in the last ten years.

    泰國公共衛生部在情人節前發布聲明警告,過去10年間,10歲至19歲族群性病增加近5倍。

    "It is due to the fact that only 43 percent (of teenagers) use condoms -- and also because they choose condoms that are too big for their actual sizes and they are afraid they will be mocked for being too small," the statement said.

    聲明說:「這是因為只有43%(青少年)使用保險套,也因為他們選擇的保險套,比他們實際尺寸大太多,他們怕太小會被笑。」

    The ministry added it planned to spend 47 million baht ($1.4 million) this year to distribute more than 43 million condoms to people across the country.

    衛生部還說,今年打算耗資4700萬泰銖(約140萬美元),分發逾4300萬個保險套給全國各地的民眾。
