More than 2,800 Indians are looking to be evacuated from the US back to India, but they can't get flights home because of India's coronavirus lockdown.

2800多名印度人希望从美国撤离,返回印度,但由于印度实施严格封锁,他们搭不到航班回国。

More than 2,800 people have joined a Facebook group called "USA TO INDIA EVACUATION FLIGHTS," where members have joined together, petitioning the Indian Embassy in the US to send them home.

2800多名印度人加入了一个名为“从美国到印度的撤离航班”的Facebook群,该群成员一起向印度驻美大使馆请愿,要求将他们送回国。

The Indian Embassy to the US, however, told the group that there would be no flights to India until the country lifts its lockdown put in place to prevent the spread of the novel coronavirus pandemic, CNN reported.

然而,据CNN报道,印度驻美国大使馆告诉该群成员,在印度解除封锁之前,不会有飞往印度的航班。

India, which has a population of 1.343 billion people, has had 35,365 confirmed cases of COVID-19 and 1,152 deaths from the virus, according to a tracker from Johns Hopkins University.

据约翰霍普金斯大学的一项跟踪调查,拥有13.43亿人口的印度已经有35365例新冠确诊病例,1152例死亡。

The country has been on lockdown since March, and its current phase is expected to last until May 3. The lockdown has closed all nonessential businesses, public transportation, and international travel on commercial flights. According to The BBC, it was one of the first countries to put heavy travel restrictions in place.

自3月以来,印度一直处于封锁状态,目前的封锁预计将持续到5月3日。封锁期间,所有非必要的经营活动、公共交通以及国际商业航班全部暂停。据BBC报道,印度是最早实施严格旅行限制的国家之一。

The Facebook group of stranded Indians includes students, travelers on tourist visas, people who have lost their work visas, and more, CNN reported. Many of them are trying to get home for relatives' funerals and medical treatments.

据CNN报道,这些滞留在美国的印度人包括学生、持旅游签证的旅行者、工作签证过期的人等等。他们中的许多人想回家参加亲人的葬礼或者回国治病。

Some have considered taking private jets. But the costs, they told CNN, would be upwards of $70,000 per person.

有些人考虑乘坐私人飞机,但每人的费用将超过7万美元。

Bindu Manjunath, who's undergoing a series of treatments to address her stage-four liver cancer diagnoses, says she needs to get home to India for medical treatment. She told CNN the costs of the US healthcare system were prohibitive.

Bindu Manjunath处于肝癌诊断的第四阶段,正在接受一系列治疗,她说她需要回到印度接受治疗。她告诉CNN,美国的医疗费用高得令人望而却步。

"I had finished all my tests before leaving for the US, (and) a small tumor is still inside (me)," she told CNN. "I really have to get back to continue my treatment — any treatment here would be a burden on my family."

她告诉CNN说:“在去美国之前,我已经做完了所有检查,在我体内还有一个小肿瘤。我真的必须回国继续治疗——对我的家庭来说,在美国接受任何一项治疗都是会增加负担。”

It remains unclear when India will allow international travel again. CNN reported that the Foreign Ministry is working with Indian states on bringing residents back from other countries.

目前还不清楚印度何时会再次开通国际航班。据CNN报道,印度外交部正与印度各邦合作,以将印度公民从其他国家接回来。

The Facebook group's founder, Michael Khanna, told CNN he's hopeful people will get back to India sooner rather than later.

这个Facebook群的创建者迈克尔·康纳告诉CNN,他希望大家能尽快回到印度。

"We are hoping at the minimum, the critical cases get evacuated first. Authorities are listening ... all we need is a small window to travel back," he said.

他说:“我们希望至少能先让危重病人撤离。当局听到了他们的呼声……我们所需要的只是开个小窗口,让我们回去。

India needs to at least repatriate its own citizens who are permanently living in India (not those having a resident visa in another country) immediately. They are facing untold financial burdens.

印度至少应该立即把本国公民(不是那些持有其他国家居留签证的印度人),他们面临着沉重的经济负担。
