As the number of cases of coronavirus rises worldwide, gig workers like couriers or ride-share drivers are particularly vulnerable. First, their health.

随着全球冠状病毒病例的增加,快递员和共享司机等零工尤其容易受到感染。首先,他们的健康。

UNIDENTIFIED MALE: We're still trying to get our arms around the exact world spread of this virus but we've really seen a number of Uber, less taxi drivers getting infected. One of the things we know is droplet contact is an important one meaning when you cough or sneeze you release (inaudible) or droplets. People come into contact with those droplets with their hands and then they're touching their face. That's a mode of transmission.

未知男性:我们仍在努力控制这种病毒的传播,但我们确实看到很多优步司机被感染,的出部分租车司机被感染。我们知道是飞沫接触是指当你咳嗽或打喷嚏时会释放液滴。人们用手接触这些液滴,然后触摸自己的脸。这就是病毒传播的一种方式。

UNIDENTIFIED MALE: I'm fully aware that I'm more exposed to this than most other members of the public. Simply because I'm spending my entire day with complete strangers in very close proximity without any significant protections.

未知男性:我很清楚自己比其他公众更易感染这种疾病。因为我整天都和完全陌生的人在一起,离得很近,而且没有任何重要的保护措施。

UNIDENTIFIED MALE: But it's not their contact with people that put them uniquely at risk. Gig workers don't get full benefits like full time employees. Things like subsidized health care, paid time off. That's why Edan Alva (ph) and other members of the group Gig Workers Rise are trying to force companies like Lyft, Uber, DoorDash, Amazon and others to give them full benefits.

未知男性:但并不是他们与人的接触使自己处于独特的危险之中。零工员工不能像全职员工那样获得全部福利。这就是为什么伊丹·阿尔瓦和零工工人联盟的其他成员正试图迫使来福车、优步、DoorDash、亚马逊等公司向他们提供全额福利。

UNIDENTIFIED MALE: When people don't get paid sick days, it means they do not take care of themselves. Which means they postpone going to the doctors, that they end up working rather than staying at home. If I don't work I can't pay my bills period.

未知男性:人们请病假,也就没有工资时,这意味着他们这是不能照顾好自己。要推迟去看医生,他们最终还是会去工作而不是呆在家里。如果我不工作,就无法支付账单。

UNIDENTIFIED MALE: Now months into this international health crisis, the companies are starting to change their policies. Both Uber and Lyft now offer payments to drivers who have been diagnosed with coronavirus or have been quarantined by public health officials.

未知男性:现在这场国际健康危机已经几个月了,这些公司开始改变政策。优步和来福车现在都向被诊断出感染了冠状病毒或因公共卫生官员被隔离的司机提供支付赔偿服务。

Uber says that its already begun to pay out some drivers but right now with testing not easily available, actually getting the diagnosis that you have coronavirus can be hard if not impossible. And on top of that, the companies haven't set how much they'll pay out drivers who do test positive or are quarantined.

优步表示,目前已经开始向一些司机支付费用,但目前很难进行检测,实际上很难诊断出你是否感染了冠状病毒。最重要的是,这些公司还没有确定对检测呈阳性或被隔离的司机支付多少钱。

UNIDENTIFIED FEMALE: When people, if they get in coughing I roll the windows down in the back a little bit and kind of circulate the air around the car. I'm not going to walk around here with a mask on scaring people off.

未知男性:如果有人咳嗽,我就把车后面的窗户摇下来让空气里流通。我不会带着面具到处走把人吓跑的。

UNIDENTIFIED MALE: For Lorraine Hanks (ph), coronavirus is no scarier than anything else she might be exposed to.

对洛林·汉克斯来说,冠状病毒不比她可能接触到的任何其他事物更可怕。

UNIDENTIFIED FEMALE: Corona is not the only virus that can get you sick from other people. So I'm concerned about every virus and I'm very precautious. So I have my little - - my 81 proof alcohol. You know, it kills everything. It kills everything in a chemical lab. It will kill everything in this car.

未知女性:冠状病毒并不是唯一能让你从别人那里得病的病毒。所以我关心每一种病毒,我很谨慎。我有81号酒精。你知道,它会杀死一切。它能杀死化学实验室里的一切。它能杀死这辆车里的一切。

UNIDENTIFIED MALE: Both Uber and Lyft are encouraging their drivers now to disinfect their cars regularly and both companies are offering supplies for them to do it. But for a gig worker, cleaning their cars cost time and time equals money.

未知男性:优步和Lyft现在都在鼓励司机定期给自己的车消毒,两家公司也都为他们提供了消毒用品。但对于零工来说,清洁汽车需要时间,而时间等于金钱。

UNIDENTIFIED MALE: I live without safety net. As a result, you start your day and you think to yourself is today going to be the day where something bad happens and my financial life is going to be completely derailed.

未知男性:我没有安全网。结果,新的一天开始了,你对自己说,今天会有糟糕的事情发生,我的账单将会完全脱轨。
