【澳洲网编译报道】随着春节的到来,许多华商仍在遭受着疫情的影响。墨尔本社区的华人们正在为农历新年的庆祝活动做最后的准备,但他们却依然面临着一场意想不到的危机。

澳广网11日报道,墨尔本市中心的唐人街空空荡荡,据悉,一些商铺的客流量下降了80%。时任维州卫生厅长的米卡克斯(Jenny Mikakos)和首席卫生官萨顿(Brett Sutton)曾鼓励墨尔本民众去中国餐馆吃饭,参加中国的新年庆祝活动,并发起了#我愿意和你在一起(#i will leatwithyou)活动,称“当其他餐馆和公共场所还在熙熙攘攘的时候,只有唐人街的餐馆和亚洲杂货店空荡荡的。”

在唐人街为农历新年庆祝活动低调的做准备之际,过去的12个月对墨尔本华人区的商铺来说是“喜忧参半”的一年。虽然一些餐馆在封锁期间外卖生意很不错,但堂食去却有很多桌子还是空着。对此,华人区协会主席杜恩(Danny Doon)称:“唐人街正在遭受痛苦,因为这里没有上班族,没有学生,也没有游客,大部分商铺的营业额几乎都下降了40%或50%。”

但尽管如此,亚洲商会却依然对未来充满希望。郑先生说道:“我注意到,只有Box Hill的待租商铺变少了很多,如果你环顾四周,会发现一切都恢复了正常,只是没有了外国游客或学生。(魏惟编译)
